Anjeer Ice cream

15 dried figs
3 cups heavy whipping cream
4 tbsp honey
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 can(14 oz) evaporated milk
3 tbsp condensed milk
1 tbsp vanilla essence
chopped nuts for garnish

Chop dried figs, soak them in warm water to plump up(figs here were soaked overnight in the refrigerator).Pulverize to a coarse pulp.

Beat chilled whipping cream to soft peaks. Add evaporated milk and confectioner's sugar and fold the milk into the cream gently making sure to not deflate the whipped cream. Add honey, vanilla essence, chopped nuts and the fig pieces( drained,without the water).
Churn in the ice cream maker as per instructions or follow the steps below to achieve crystal free ice cream.
Set in a bowl and freeze it for a little more than an hour.Remove from freezer stir until it becomes smooth and creamy breaking the ice crystals, if formed. Now set it to freeze again 6-8 hours, or until the ice cream is set.

Remove few mins before ready to serve, scoop out the ice cream into individual bowls and serve with sliced figs or set it in molds like I did.
