No, I am not joking, you really can get deep fried ice cream. I first came across it years ago in a Chinese restaurant. It is a ball of ice cream dipped in batter, and then dropped into hot oil for a few seconds, just long enough to cook the batter, no more, lest the ice cream melt. It really is the yummiest way to have ice cream. It came with a banana fritter. Have you ever enjoyed this, have you never heard of it?

Naadia, it is superb. I think it is one of the discoveries in my life that makes having lived worthwhile no matter what other terrible things can happen, I've had deep fried ice cream. Several times, and with different fruits and toppings. I've really lived. Ohh, I like lemon chicken to. I'll have that first and then the fried ice cream.

Hi naadia, I have sent you a great pile of these recipes and I also learned some very different ways to make this Fried Ice Cream.

We used to order this dessert every time we went to a Mexican restaurant. I've never seen it at a Chinese restaurant. It's so yummy. They would serve it drizzled in honey and chocolate sauce, sitting on a fried flour tortilla covered with cinnamon sugar and topped with whipped cream.

I have never heard of deep fried ice cream, though I'm intrigued by the premise! I'd give it a go, but it would probably be something you could only eat a tiny bit of. In the UK a few years ago, there was a trend for deep friend Mars bars, mainly in Scotland. Apparently you can deep fry anything!

Hi, nice to hear from you that there is a supply available where you live. How lucky are you, knowing an ice cream owner. I think also since you don't really like them, there might be more for me. If I ever visit your country, I will look for Panda Ice cream and try a few. mmmm, I want one now. No, more than one. Is Panda just in the Phillipines or export elsewhere?

When I was a kid, we went out for tea one night with friends to a chinese restaurant. We all had the deep fried ice cream. I seem to remember the batter had a nice tangy taste. Maybe they added lemon juice to the batter. The amazing thing i remember was that it was called 'ice cream on fire'. Yes flames of fire were coming off the cooked batter of our deep fried ice cream when our desserts arrived on the table. Has that happened to anyone else?

OK, thanks, Geelong is a lot closer than Horsham to me. Now I just need the same restaurant to be there and open when I go and look around there. Stranger things have happened.

Yes and there are different types of coatings for the ice cream. Flour & water batter, bread/cornflake crumbs, egg & crumbs & batter, chinese pudding, cake, fresh bread wrapped around the ice cream. Mmmmmm.

Yes, I've tried Deep fried ice cream, but as with another poster it was in a mexican restaurant, I have yet to see it in a chinese restaurant. I enjoyed the mexican variety, so I'd love to try the Chinese variety and see how it varies.

Hi, that is interesting about it being in Mexican restaurants, not that many around these parts in Australia. I used to know where one was, but they burnt down years ago, (maybe the food was too spicy).

I love deep fried ice cream! I first tried this in Jack's Loft. I had a scoop of mango ice cream wrapped in a batter made of cornflakes. Yummy dessert!

O.K. thanks for that, I've never had the cornflake ones just plain flour batter. I want to experiment a bit on these. There are quite a few variations in the recipe for the coating for the ice cream.

Hi, the ice cream is very cold and hard, it is dipped in batter and then very quickly in hot oil. It works, the batter is cooked and the ice cream inside is still hard. It is yummy.

Create demand by asking and someone will start supplying, hopefully. Make your own and sell it, ohhh, I could run a fried ice cream stand easily.
