Last year I made several recipes in nungu. Nungu is known as ice apple in English. Last week I went to suriya greens and bought two packet of nungu. I made nunguppaal, nungu smoothie and nungu popsicle. First I started with nungu popsicle. It was simple, easy and apt recipe for the summer. The taste was awesome. Kids will enjoy to eat this popsicle because of jelly texture.
Now let us see how to make
- Iceapple (Nungu) – 6
- Boiled milk – 1 ½ cup
- Sugar – 3 tablsp
- Cardamom powder – 1 pinch (optional)
Peel ice apple and chop into small cubes. Blend it coarsely. Add ground ice apple in the milk. Add sugar and mix well. Fill it in the popsicle mould and freeze for about 8 hours or overnight. Show the mould in the running water and remove carefully from the mould. Serve immediately.
If you want you can add any flavor of your choice (cardamom, saffron or vanilla). I like iceapple’s original taste so I did not add any flavor.
If you want jelly like texture, you can grind ice apple coarsely.
