    Here we go!

    I made this a while back for my partner but only have found the time to post it up on my shiddy looking blog LOL... meh, not the prettiest but it works!

    Ingredients:
    - Filo pastry sheets (3x sheets per fried icecream)
    - Low fat vanilla icecream (3x scoops per fried icecream)
    - 1x egg
    - Caramel sauce
    - Coconut shavings
    - Icing Sugar


    Method:
    Thaw out the filo pastry, and separate into sets of three sheets per fried icecream. Scoop approximately 2~3 scoops of icecream for each fried icecream and roll up however you want to, make sure it is icecream tight. Use the egg to seal up the pastry and pop the parcels straight into the freezer, the longer and colder they are the better they will turn out. When ready, heat up enough oil to cover the icecream and make sure it's at decent hot. Pop in the frozen icecream parcels and fry for approximately 30 seconds, remove and place on paper towels. Serve immediately with coconut shavings, caramel sauce, and icing sugar. Serve immediately!

    Time: 10 minutes (overnight freezing time, if have a commerical blast freezer then 30mins or so)
    Cost: ~ $10
    Serves: 4 or more depending on portion sizing

    I reckon using crappy icecream yields a better results because it contains more water, using a nice creamier one melts quicker (from my experience). Low fat works too, as it contains a touch more water.

    All the best guys/girls!

    Looks great, I'm a big fan of deep fried icecream. But have never tried it with filo. Will give it a crack one day.

    The ones that asian restaurant use are basically sponge cakes, egg and coconut shavings.

    Cut sponge cake into thin 10mm slices, scoop icecream, and cover icecream in sponge cake, then dip in egg and roll in coconut shaving. Then freeze it and when ready to eat, take it out and deep fry. Very easy to make.
