Masala Chai Ice Cream

From Cookipedia

You can always expect the unexpected from Nik & Edwina as in this tea Ice cream recipe recently sent to me by Nik.

This is an excellent way to finish a curry, and always reminds us of the chai - Indian tea - served on Indian trains in little clay cups. ItΒ’s got a comforting, creamy tea-ish flavour, against a warm, inviting spicey background. We make it with Rooibos tea bags so it is caffeine free but traditionally youΒ’d use a strong tea such as Assam. Chai spice is available from Indian supermarkets throughout London - we get ours in Tooting - but can also be found online (Spices of India)

  1. Put the milk in a large heavy based saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 25 minutes or until reduced to 750ml
  2. Add the sugar, tea bags, cardamom, and chai spice. Stir well, return to the heat and boil for a further 15 minutes. This will reduce the mixture to about 500ml. Squeeze the milk out of the tea bags and remove. Allow the mixture to cool
