How to make the recipe?
  1. Boil milk on low heat in a wide bottomed pan. Once the milk has reached it's boiling point i.e. when milk completely comes high. Switch off the gas at this point.
  2. Add rice flour, milk powder when milk is very hot and stir nicely. Allow the milk to cool down.
  3. Now add condensed milk, cream, cardamom powder, kewra essence, rose water, salt and all toasted chopped nuts.
  4. Combine all nicely and pour into kulfi moulds Or any mould. Freeze until firm. If using kulfi moulds rub gently towards the bottom for few seconds.
  5. The kulfi will slide out gently insert a toothpick. Sprinkle some nuts and enjoy chilled kulfi. Alternatively, you could slice and eat kulfis.
1. I have added less condensed milk as I prefer less sweet so add as per preference.
2. Nuts are optional but it gives a great taste.
3. Ensure you heat milk on low fire else it will get burnt.
4. If kewra essence isn't available you could replace with almond essence.
