Kulfi


Kulfi is one of the kid’s favorite street foods. During my school days for vacation, we use to visit our grand parents place, there will be 12- 15 kids, we use to call Ice cream person and stop him in front of our house for half an hour. Hope you can imagine in a small village if he sells a lot in short time what will happen he use to come every day and ring the bell. Even though it’s not Kulfi, when I planned to make this kulfi, my kid’s behavior remained me those wonderful days.

This is my last post for this month Blogging Marathon; I ended up last two weeks with a dessert thought of doing the same for this week too. There comes Kulfi idea, Kulfi must be served semi frozen and not soft like ice cream.

Ingredients:

Milk
4 cups
Sugar
½ cup
Crushed almonds
1 ½ Tbsp
Pista crushed
1 ½ Tbsp
Heavy cream
½ cup
Rose water
¼ tsp
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
Yields: 8-10
 


 

 

Directions:

  1. Bring milk to boil in a heavy bottomed vessel, when it’s reduced to 3 cups.
  2. Put sugar in a bowl add ½ cup of hot milk and stir until smooth. Add this mixture to boiling milk.
  3. Continue to cook on low flame until thick and creamy or until it’s reduced to 1 ½ cups.
  4. Add the crushed nuts and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  5. Whip the cream in a large bowl until smooth and thick but not stiff, then mix the cream, rose water, cardamom powder to the reduced milk.
  6. Pour into cone shaped container or kulfi molds; freeze for 10 hours or until set.
  7. To serve, hold the cones under tape water for couple minutes remove the lid and run a sharp knife around the edges and slip out the kulfi gentle.

mm, temping. Now since the temp is soaring high and summer holidays nearing, perfect for kiddo's to quench their thirst and also to quench our thirst of feeding them healthy.
