Wiki says that “Kulfi or Qulfi is a popular frozen milk-based dessert from the Indian Subcontinent. It is often described as “traditional Indian Subcontinent ice-cream“. It is popular throughout neighboring countries in South Asia, Burma (Myanmar), and even the Middle East. It has similarities to ice cream (as popularly understood) in appearance and taste, but is denser and creamier.”
But only the ones who have tasted it know better… we know the rich texture and flavors it comes in…even the taste of raspberry and mango kulfi.. 🙂
Well It comes in various flavors, including cream (malai), raspberry, rose, mango, cardamom, saffron , the more traditional flavors, as well as newer variations like apple, orange, strawberry, peanut, and avocado. Unlike Western ice creams, kulfi is not whipped, hence it is a dense frozen dessert similar to traditional custard based ice-cream. Thus, it is sometimes considered a distinct class of frozen dairy-based dessert. And due to its density, kulfi takes a longer time to melt than Western ice-cream.”
And to make this yummy dessert in a no fuss no hassle way you would simply need:
4 parts of condensed milk
4 parts of unsweetened milk
1 part cream
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
- Combine all the ingredients and whisk well so that no lumps remain.
- Pour into molds and keep in the refrigerator for 7 to 8 hours or till set.
- Serve chilled.
PS: Add nuts or flavors of choice to the kulfi to make it interesting.
