Being a frozen dairy dessert, kulfi is technically an ice-cream, but with the rich flavour and unique texture of condensed milk, it is a class apart, a genre in its own right!

Of the many varieties of kulfi, this traditional Malai Kulfi stands out with an extra rich and intense flavour and creaminess, all thanks to the slow but rewarding process of condensing full-fat milk till it gets an irresistible texture and aroma.

A sprinkling of cardamom accentuates the appeal of this dessert.

Ingredients

4 cups full fat milk
3/4 cup condensed milk
1 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder

Method
    Method
  1. Combine the cornflour with the milk and mix well. Keep aside.
  2. Heat the milk and condensed milk in a deep non-stick pan and bring it to a boil on a medium flame, while stirring occasionally, so that the milk does not stick to the bottom of the pan. It should take approximately 9 to 10 minutes.
  3. Simmer the milk on a low flame for 40 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the cornflour mixture and cardamom powder, mix well and cook on a slow flame, while stirring occasionally for 12 minutes or till it becomes thick.
  5. Switch off the flame and let it cool completely. Pour the mixture into 6 aluminum kulfi moulds.
  6. Freeze overnight or till set.

Mam , We cant use cow''s milk accept full fat milk?

   Hi Anchal, We suggest you use only full fat milk as for kulfi we need creaminess and that will not come good with cow''s milk.

Made this recipe, loved it. I only have one doubt where it is mentioned (Combine the milk, condensed milk and milk powder in a deep non-stick pan, mix well and bring to a boil.) We dont have to keep stiring till it boils?Do we I had kept stirring and hence it took a lot of time to boil Also how do we check that the Kulfi is ready,Do we have to make sure the mixture reduces to half

   Hi Nikita, Make sure you stir it occasionally, As mentioned in the recipe it will take approx 22 to 25 minutes to reduce.
