Kulfi is a frozen dessert made with milk. Traditionally, milk is boiled till its reduced to one third, sweetened and flavored with cardamom and chopped nuts. It is then poured into earthen pots or kulfi moulds and freeze till solid. Here, to accelerate the process, we used evaporated milk and condensed milk.
Makes: around 2 Servings of Kulfi.


Evaporated Milk 1/2 Cup
Sweetened Condensed Milk 1/3 Cup / 80 ml
Cardamom Powder 1
Kulfi Moulds 2
Pistachios 2 Tbsps
Silver Warq 1

Method of preparation:

Finely chop the pistachios and keep aside.
Bruise the cardamom and grind the seeds into fine powder.

Bring to boil evaporated milk in a sauce pot, add cardamom powder.
Boil for couple of minutes to let the milk absorb all the cardamom flavor.
Cool the milk to room temperature, stir in condensed milk, half the chopped pistachios.

Pour the milk into kulfi moulds and seal with lid.
Each kulfi mould can hold upto one third cup of the flavored milk.
Alternatively, use any small bowls or glasses to fill up and cover with aluminium wrap.
Freeze the kulfi moulds in freezer for good 6 hours.

Run the moulds under hot water to ease the removal of kulfi.
Remove the kulfi onto a plate, garnish with remaining pistachios and silver warq.
Serve kulfi immediately.
Notes: Make sure to freeze the kulfi pots well.

Suggestions: You can place the kulfi moulds in ice cubes sprinkled with salt.
Variations: Alternatively, boil full fat milk till its reduced to one third instead of using evaporated milk and condensed milk. In which case, use sugar to sweeten the milk. Also fold in a tbsp or so of whipping cream if desired.
