Come summer, the strong aroma of mangoes captivates your senses even as you enter the market. It is simply impossible to leave without buying some.

Fair enough, because this amazing fruit can be used to make a practically endless range of recipes – right from snacks to main course and of course, desserts too.

In this irresistible recipe, we have brought together two all-time favourites – mangoes and kulfi. Kulfi always needs a bit of time to cook the milk, but it is completely worth the effort because the intense milky taste is what makes it different from other ice-creams.

In this recipe, we have added mango pulp, mango cubes and spices to the cooked and cooled milk, to give the kulfi a fruity touch. The fruity-milky taste of the Mango Kulfi is simply awesome and it is sure to win compliments from everyone!

Try other kulfis like the Kesar Pista Kulfi or Malai Kulfi .

In one of your comments, u have mentioned that this recipe has made the use of condensed milk. However, in your ingredients and recipe mentioned above, condensed milk is not at all mentioned. Pls rectify this anomaly. Is condensed milk required in the recipe or not?

   Hi Anshu, Cornflour is used to thicken the milk which gives a nice consistency to the kulfi. Try using that only.

Hi, This is a query. Please help me with: 1. Can''t we use condensed milk like Amul Mithai mate / milkmaid only instead of milk powder and normal milk? 2. Pls give tips on how to unmould? (I have never done / seen it before). 3. Can we put the sticks inside to hold the kulfi? When to put these? Thanks.

   Hi Payal, 1. Condensed milk is already in the recipe and do not omit the milk powder as it makes it creamy and also makes it thicker. 2. remove the kulfi after set from the freezer, wait for 5 minutes, put a tick in it and pull it lightly.
