Mango Kulfi


Every now and then, I like to groove my butt towards a new invention. Basically, I like the thought of either keeping my hands clean or getting my fingers dirty over a whole new chapter of desserts (Chocolate Lava Cake & Chocolate Genoise). Dessert by far, is not a desirable, fancy frilly treat in my house (Wajik/Sweet Glutinous Rice Cakes & Banana Bread). None of us, in fact only two heads in my house, both of us sincerely are not into desserts (Lemon Squares). Regardless, I do, do desserts for occasions or for friends who love a sweet touch on their sweet palates. My style to desserts, as you know, generally is the simplest. Generally too mostly Malaysian or Asian desserts. I do, whenever I feel like, bake those listed on Western menu desserts. On this particular day, I was really tempted over an Indian dessert. Kulfi. What else can it be? Kulfi which has been donkey over times showcased by every other Indian food blogger, until when you google for a kufli recipe, you will be so confused on which is the best among the rest .


Kulfi is nothing more but an Indian ice cream (Coconut Red Bean Ice Cream & Nescafe Ice Cream). Milk and sugar indeed are the core ingredients, if you have a cow at home, well and good, milk the cow for its fresh milk. Otherwise, store bought fresh milk or even carton milk will do. Sugar naturally must be bought, if you own a sugar factory, can I some sugar please? Just kidding. I however ditched sugar aside. Instead, I opted for condensed milk because its akin two in one power. Sweetness and creaminess. For the rest of the ingredients, stroll down and you will see all of it once I am done with this grandmother story of mine. Its time right now I stop with the story so that your time is not taken up. Frozen, creamy and infused with cardamom and saffron strands, atop with pistachios, this my version of Mango Kulfi I so believe will sensationally and joyously pop your sweet palates, up and away, right up to cloud nine! Hail it. 

Ingredients
1 cup milk (carton or fresh milk)
1/2 cup condensed milk
3 cardamom - powder the seeds
1 1/2 cup mango puree (either puréed fresh mangoes or store bought but fresh is still the winner) 
1/4 or a pinch of saffron strands (don't have? no need to add)
Method
Heat milk till boiling point (don't overboil please).
Add saffron strands, stir and keep aside to cool down.
Then, add the rest of the ingredients.
Stir together, divide the mixture and pour into thick paper cups or moulds.
Freeze and before serving, generously sprinkle with pistachios or any other nuts.  
(Note: nuts can be mixed with the rest of the ingredients before freezing).
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support will rocket my pride. Thank you everyone.
