1. Prepare all the ingredients first and Keep one vessel ready to take out ice-cream mixture.
2. Now take a pan or skillet and put milk, cornflour and milk powder in it.
3. Switch on the gas and stir this mixture continuously otherwise mixture will stick to pan.
4. When the mixture comes to a boil, take it out immediately in another pan otherwise it will stick to the pan. Let it cool completely. (check the bottom of the pan, it should not be warm)
5. Now pour this mixture in a mixer grinder jar with sugar and beat for about 2 minutes.
6. Put fresh cream or whipped cream to the mixture and beat it 5 times on on/off mode. On/off mode means turning the mixer for a second and turning if off. For ice-creams whipped cream works best, if you have use that. I m using homemade fresh cream i.e. malai.
7. Take out the mixture and divide it equally in two bowls. In the first bowl add pineapple essence and green color (or lemon yellow color). In the second bowl add strawberry essence and raspberry red color. Mix well.
