Original Ice Cream Flavor: Mango Chili Ice Cream Ice Cream Chef: Kana What inspired this recipe? This ice cream captures the flavours of my childhood in Malaysia. Cardamom is widely used in both sweet and savoury Indian dishes. One of my fondest memory of my home is during the mango season when our mango tree would be laden with fruits. Fruit vendors often sold sliced skewers of ripe mangoes, pineapples and guava dusted with a mixture that consists of hot chili, sugar and salt. Tastetester comments and full recipe after the jump.
