Tempura Matcha /Green Tea Ice Cream

I have the urge to make Tempura Ice Cream for the longest but never have the chance until I get a box of tempura flour and green tea powder.I bought a big container of green tea powder from Malaysia when I was there few months ago..So here come my Green Tea Powder mix with Vanilla Ice Cream=Matcha ice cream!!.) (抹茶) Matcha is a fine, powdered green tea used particularly in the Japanese tea ceremony, as well as to flavour and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodles, green tea ice cream and a variety of wagashi (Japanese confectionery).To make this dessert more challenging,I deep fried it with tempura flour. Japanese Green Tea/Matcha ice cream encased in pound cake, battered and fried. Ingredients for Making Matcha Ice Cream:

500ml vanilla ice cream

1 tbsp matcha

1 tbsp warm water

Ingredients for Tempura:

1 pack tempura dry flour

1 loaf butter cake (sliced) or sliced white bread.

3-4 cup oil for frying Method:

1:Soften ice cream at room temperature or transferring to refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.Do not allow it to melt completely.

2:Mix the matcha powder and lukewarm water in a cup and stir well to make a smooth paste.

3:Put half the ice cream into a mixing bowl.Add the matcha liquid and mix thoroughly with a rubber spatula,then add the rest of the ice cream.Put the bowl into the freezer for an hour.

4:Prepare sliced pound cake or white bread .Scoop out even balls of ice cream and wrap each slice cake or bread over the ice cream until well covered.Repeat this step until all matcha ice cream finished.Refreeze wrapped ice cream again for 30 minutes to one hour.

5:Prepare tempura batter following the box instruction.

6:Heat oil for deep fry at medium heat or 350F.Dip frozen wrapped matcha ice cream into the batter quickly and deep fry for 5 minutes or until the batter is crispy.

7:Remove tempura matcha ice cream from fryer ,cut and serve immediately. As you can see from the photo,the tempura matcha ice cream is melting away due to hot weather and deep fried process.
Too bad I don't have Rum or Grand Mainer.I prefer my tempura matcha ice cream burn with alcohol first before serve:0

I used white bread since I don't have pound cake.Of course,pound cake taste better :P..You can use any topping you like eg: whipped cream,chocolate sauce,strawberry sauce or alcohol.If you don't have tempura batter,use regular flour mix with baking powder,there you go...Stay tune for more Japanese dish!.
