After savouring a spicy meal, time for some  not overly sweet relaxing dessert.  The weather has been crazy these past few weeks, hot and humid which makes one feel sweaty, lethargic and irritable.  So this comfortable dessert is what we need right now to keep our heads and bodies Cool!

    2. Using a ball whisk, whisk egg yolks with the sugar till smooth, set aside.
    3. Place milk and cream in a saucepan, heat gently, adding in the vanilla seeds.  Once milk starts to foam up, remove from heat.

  11. Hi, Cheah, beetroot by itself tastes a bit sour, isn't it, so this beetroot ice-cream must be very refreshing!An ice-cream maker here can be as cheap as just $20-$30 but I'm really curious how good they are compares to a good brand. Anyway, it is something that I'm hesitating to buy.

    1. The ice cream doesn't taste sour at all, really can't tell there's beet in it. I'm using a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so far so good.
