Dry Fruit Kulfi recipe a traditional Indian Dessert.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 1.5 ltr full fat milk
  • 1.5 cup organic sugar/ raw sugar/plain sugar (I used raw sugar)
  • 4 whole green cardamom crushed
  • 1 white bread chopped Or torn into minute pieces
  • 50 gms mava (evaporated milk)
  • 16 to 18 whole almonds
  • 16 to 18 cashewnuts
  • 7 to 8 raisins
  • 1 saffron strand (kesar)
  • 1 tbsp almond essence
  • 2 tbsp rose water
  • few fresh rose petals red Or pink Or any color would do
  • a pinch of salt
How to make the recipe?
  1. Take a wide bottomed saucepan. Add milk to it place on low fire. Once milk starts bubbling add sugar, evaporated milk (mava), torn bread and crushed cardamom. Keep stirring continuously add a pinch of salt.
  2. The milk will start reducing and get thicker. Add all dry fruits, saffron, raisins and rose water. Simmer for 2 mins more then switch off the gas. Lastly add rose petals and almond essence. Once the kulfi mixture cools down transfer to kulfi moulds Or whichever mould you wish. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours Or until firm. Serve chilled with rabdi Or gulab jamun.
Notes
1. Before serving kulfis just rub the moulds with your palm for a minute. Tap the back of the mould with your hand the kulfis will slide gently. You could slice them into pieces Or insert a toothpick in the center and eat like a popsicle.
2. I have used dry fruits the way they are you could blanch them and use.
3. Evaporated milk adds great flavor to kulfis. I have used sugar free mava if your mava is with sugar then be careful while adding sugar. I prefer my sweets less sweeter.
