Fig-Pomegranate Ice cream with Honey-Tahini Caramel
My kitchen is filled with new ingredients! I arrived to India a few weeks ago and I've had the chance to Sun bathe, swim and enjoy Mother India. I love to cook here. There are so many wonderful fruits, vegetables and different ingredients to cook with. For some reason, food is incredibly tasty in India. It's as if the gods have blessed the food with so much flavour, or maybe its just my continuos love affair with India. I keep falling in love with her every time I am here.
The other day I was surprised to find fresh figs at the fruit market. I added some pomegranate and soft dates to the basket. This turned into a creamy, crunchy and flavorful ice cream.
I hope you like it!
