Teppanyaki Kiwi Icecream

In this era has anyone escaped the influences of the TV? I too fall prey once in a while.

This is one such recipe.

Saw a food show that showed Teppanyaki cooking and the shock factor came from the reduced ice cream on the Teppanyaki. Now you will wonder what that is. Well by definition:

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き teppan'yaki?) is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word "teppanyaki" is derived from teppan (鉄板), which means iron plate, and yaki (焼き), which means grilled, broiled or pan-fried. Source: Wikipedia

Restaurants take this Tava frying (if you compare it to Indian cooking) to a new height. The chefs are performers. I guess anything grilled on a Teppanyaki should taste good. Fifty % of the game is won by the hot food and 50 % by the chef's style. I am not even considering taste as a factor.

I tried this desert in the Teppanyaki style. I cheated with readymade vanilla icecream. The chef on TV fried mix fruits with a lot of garlic! I din't dare. So this recipe is my own in that sense.


1 cup Vanilla icecream
1/4 cup Kiwi puree
1 Kiwi sliced

I filled a bowl with Kiwi puree. Then heated a nonstick frying pan, transferred 1/2 cup vanilla icecream onto it. Reduced it until lumpy. Put the reduced icecream lumps on the Kiwi puree so as to give a second layer in the bowl. Then added the other half cup of vanilla icecream on top. I was tempted to add nuts but stopped. The Kiwi seed lends a nice texture as well as a kinda crunch to the deliciously cool bowl. Decorate with Kiwi slices.

This proportion is for a single person. A treat for me.

Dig to the bottommost layer and scoop up the rest of the layers, devour!
