This recipe goes out to Jake, who shares my love for Indian cuisine and considered this one of the best ice creams he has ever had.  And if you like the flavor of chai tea, you will enjoy this!  Also, it's quick to make, requires very few ingredients, and tastes absolutely amazing.  I made this for an Indian dinner party and it was a huge hit.  Definitely make this a day ahead so it can freeze overnight.  And yes, the recipe is correct in listing bread as an ingredient.  It gives an unbelievable texture and flavor to the ice cream!  Serve it with pistachios and a bit of reddi-whip and you're good to go. 

(serves 24)

1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 slices white or wheat bread, torn into pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
1/2 cup chopped pistachios

Combine first 3 ingredients in a blender until smooth.  
Add bread pieces and spices and blend again until smooth.
Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 pan or 2 ice cube trays.  Sprinkle with additional cinnamon, if necessary.  Cover and freeze 8 hours or overnight.  
Top with pistachios and extra whipped cream to serve.
