Here in Seattle for last couple days we had a grogerous sunshine and thought let me try homemade vanilla ice cream. For dressing added some starwberries,pears,organes and nuts with chocolate syrup which looks similar to Mangalore Gadbag ice cream.
2 cups half-and-half milk
5 large egg yolks
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 vanilla bean or 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Half and Half cream is a mixture of cream and whole milk.
Meanwhile in a stainless steel bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until fluffy.Gradually pour the scalding half-and-half into the whipped egg yolk mixture, keep whisking constantly so eggs yolks don't curdle. If any lumps do form, strain the mixture first before heating.
Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, cook until the custard thickens enough that it coats the back of a spoon.
Immediately remove the custard from the heat and continue to stir the custard for a few minutes so it does not overcook.Cover and let cool to room temperature and then refrigerate the custard until it is completely cold preferably overnight.
