Fried Ice Cream

How about an ice cream which is cold inside and super hot outside on this rainy season?? Yes you got me right it's "Fried Ice Cream". The thing with opposite combinations tastes very unique like a hot Gulab Jamun in an ice cream or a ice cream on a hot cake. Mangalore being a place famous for the ice creams, there is a hotel by name  "Cherry Square" and it was indeed very famous for the desserts they served. They served a dessert called "Some Like it Hot!" where cold ice cream scoop is placed on hot chocolate cake with hot chocolate sauce on it. It was heavenly! Similar way the other day  was searching for such recipes over the internet and came across this fried ice cream recipe. You need not require much ingredients for this. I prepared it and it was a great success! In fact hardly got anything to taste since everything was finished by my son :) Hope you try it and like it.
