Green Chillies Ice-cream:
No Indian meal is complete without chillies either in the form of pickles, in the food itself when cooked or in a raw form. Indians are fond of consuming green chillies. But, how about chillies infused in ice-creams? The delicacy that came out is just fantastic while retaining its coldness and richness of cream, the ice-cream retains the succulent flavour of roasted green chillies. When you begin to feel the sting of raw chillies in every bite you would want to have more of it.
Gulab Jamun Cheesecake:

Sugar syrup is not squeezed out of it and it can be made with a hung yogurt instead of cream cheese that can balance the sweetness of Gulab Jamun. It is full of Indian flavours. Gelatin and eggs are not used in these cheesecakes and need no baking.
