butterscotch icecream recipebutterscotch icecream recipe | homemade butterscotch ice cream with step by step photo and video recipe. ice cream recipes are always on huge demand across india, especially with younger age audience. the most common ones are chocolate, vanilla, and mango ice cream but there are other variants too which are known for its flavor and creaminess. one such hugely popular ice cream flavor is butterscotch flavor ice cream known for its crunchy sugar crystals, creaminess, and dissolving flavor.

as i was explaining earlier, butterscotch icecream recipes are generally made with brown sugar or white sugar. in other words, brown sugar is caramelized and mixed with dry fruits to make sugar crunch or praline confectionery. however, in this recipe, i have introduced a twist by using jaggery as an alternative. with the use of jaggery, it not only makes it healthy but also a practical solution for many indian household kitchens. brown sugar may not be easily available for many and some may not prefer to use white sugar. for those, this homemade butterscotch ice cream with jaggery is an ideal alternative that easily quenches your sugar thirst.

anyway, before i wrap up, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions, and variants to homemade butterscotch ice cream recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used jaggery as an alternative to making sweet crunch but that is not mandatory. you may fall back to the traditional way and use brown sugar or white sugar if you are not comfortable with jaggery. secondly, in this recipe, i have not added sugar and added condensed milk to get the sweetness for this ice cream. having said that, this is not a diabetic-friendly recipe and if you have sugar problems, avoid this recipe completely. lastly, if you wish to make it more creamy, you may beat the semi-frozen ice cream once or twice. basically you have to freeze it for 3-4 hours, beat it and freeze it again for a more creamy texture.
