Kulfi: Frozen Milky Cardamom Dessert

Hello bloggy friends…..Hope everyone is fantastic and doing well. Taking a little extra care during winters,and not getting ill(Like I did). At the beginning of 2014, I decided that I am going to try out some of my mum’s recipes. She’s a fantastic cook. And best of all, she cooks with love. Love does makes things a thousand times more delicious. She used to make kulfis, or Frozen Milky Cardamom dessert for us a lot when we were kids. Now, she doesn’t have a lot of time to do such things,and it has been almost  three months since I last saw a kulfi. Yesterday I was craving it so much. It isn’t just your average ice cream,it has its own distinctive crunchy and dry-fruity taste. Needless to say, I satisfied my craving by taking over the kitchen! Here’s a peep into what I did. 




Ingredients(Serves 6)

  • 1.25  litre milk
  • Seeds from  8 cardamom crushed
  • 1/2 cup almonds 
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • Crushed almonds and pistachios(To scatter over kulfis)

How to go about it

  • Put pistachios and almonds in a blender(Not a food processor) and pulse twice.Set aside.
  • Put the milk on medium heat  and let it simmer.
  • Add sugar.
  • Add crushed cardamom seeds.
  • Add crushed  pistachios and almonds.
  • Mix cornflour to two tbsp cold water.Add and mix the cornflour mixture into the milk.
  • Reduce heat to low, and let the content simmer until milk gets to half its original volume(Keep stirring after every 10 minutes all the while).
  • Let the milk cool completely.
  • Add cream into the milk and mix it well with a large spoon.
  • Pour the kulfi mixture into Popsicle molds or any other glasses. Put them in freezer.
  • After 1 hour of freezing an ice layer will form over kulfi mixture in glasses.Insert bamboo stick through it.
  • Put it back in the Freezer.Freeze it overnight or for 8 hours.
  • To take out kulfi from mold , pour hot water over the bottom of the glass.
  • Slide out kulfi and serve with a scattering of crushed pistachios and almonds.
