Fried Ice-Cream recipe | Summer Recipes | Flavour Diary

Yes you read it right...its fried Ice cream...that sounds interesting right... Its been ages ago when me and my friends went for girls team lunch. Ordering and trying different things is my passion so i was lucky to find this interesting dessert on my table. When i saw this on the menu, i laughed at it and ordered it. I was soo excited and eagerly waiting to see how they would serve fried ice cream and they served a ball on a plate drizzled some chocolate sauce on it. It was hot crunchy from outside and cold and soft inside.
When my foodie monday group decided to have some summer theme for a bloghop ... i was not will to have same traditional summer coolers, so search google for help...and by seeing fried Ice cream i was happy and decided to give it a try. There were two ways of doing this fried ice cream one with crushed cereals and egg wash...this is Mexican Fried Ice Cream and the second is Tempura Fried Ice Cream which is cake and tempura which is famous in East Asia. I was not bit confident about crushed cereals and egg wash and it takes bit more steps and time, so i just skipped the Mexican style. Next was tempura way  where we use cake to cover the ice cream and dip it in tempura liquid...hmmm i thought this would be too sweet and then i just remembered my Bread Bonda where we stuff the veggies in the bread and so i did the same way and dipped it in tempura batter and tadaaa i was happy to see the output. 
If you want to surprise yourself or family or friends you can give it a try just like my Custard Powder Lava Cake where the flood of custard blows out when you slice yummy.
