Ice Apple(Nungu) Badam Gheer

I love this ice apple/nungu if its done in the method which my mom use to prepare.But yesterday when my hubby bought this i thought of preparing in the same way how my mom use to prepare.But when i called my mom she gave an idea to add little more ingredients and make it as a nungu badam gheer.So tried it and it was yummy to have.Also it has lot of health benefits as it is a good source of calcium, phosphorus, B complex vitamins, thiamine and riboflavin.Very good during summer season as it reduces the heat of the body like tender coconut.So i thought of sharing the simple recipe.

I took 5 pieces of ice apple and was enough for 2 persons.

Ingredients :

Ice apple(nungu) 5 pieces
Milk 350ml
Sugar 10-12 tsp
Badam 7 pieces
Cashew 7 pieces
Badam essence 3-4 drops(optional)

Method :

1.Peel the skin of ice apple.

2.Cut the ice apple into small pieces and keep aside.Boil the milk.Once milk is boiled add sugar and boil for around 2 Min's in low flame.Then add finely chopped badam and cashew and boil for around 2-3 minutes.

4.Now add the ice apple(cut into pieces) to the boiling milk and stir for around  1-2 minutes.Now put off the flame,bring the gheer to room temperature and add few drops of badam essence.Refrigerate minimum for 2 hours and serve chilled.

Notes :

1.Adjust the sugar according to the taste buds and to the sweetness of the ice apple.

2.Adding badam essence is optional but i gives a nice taste.

3.Can add ice cubes also if want more chilled but since i don't like too much chilled i didn't add.

4.While buying the ice apple it should be soft while we touch it.That will have a nice taste and sweetness.


Another Method :

1.Just cut the ice apple into small pieces and add to the milk(already boiled and kept aside) along with sugar and once the sugar is diluted in milk can refrigerate and serve chilled.If want can add ice cubes also while serving.
