Paan Ice-Cream!!! Absolute delight for pan and ice-cream lovers!!!!!

Pan Ice-Cream!!! Absolute delight for pan and ice-cream lovers

 Hello Sweeties!!! summer is here and its really heating up things. Life is busy now with small get-together's Impromptu Park picnics and Ice-cream cravings. After a huge success with mango ice cream, I tried  a paan ice-cream. We love Paan. Paan is a betel leaf preparation widely popular in India and usually chewed after a heavy meal or everyday.

Although its digestive, people get addicted to it adding tobacco and other things, but we like it safe, which is called Meetha Pan. It has no tobacco and betel nut. Meetha/Sweet paan is for kids so has no betel nuts/but has  loads of gulkand/rose petal jam and candy and sweetened coconut and some tutty-fruities.

You will need;
1.5 Cups heavy Whipping Cream
5 teaspoons Conf Sugar
1 tsp corn starch
2 ready made Paans cut into small pieces-- See Notes
5 Pan Bites-Candy in Indian Store--Optional
 
 ** The green paan/leaf in the below picture is store brought, usually you will find Paan makers in most Indian restaurants or vicinities. The right side shows a candy now seen in desi grocery stores called Pan bites

Take the cream, add corn starch and sugar and whip in the stand mixer till soft peaks form. The base is ready. Add the cut paan pieces and pan bite candy and run the whipping blade for another 2 minutes and mix well.
 
Remove the mixture in a frozen ice cream maker bowl. Cover the bowls with some cling film/plastic wrap and set in the freezer for 2-3 hours. 
The soft serve is ready after a couple of hours in freezer. If you want harder ice-cream, freeze overnight or minimum of 6-8 hours.
