Mango Kulfi

Spread the love

“A kulfi a day keeps the summer away!!”

I am a Kulfi person. I would rather choose kulfis over icecreams. The creaminess of kulfis are not only tempting but something you would love to dive into. And as Mango season is at its peak. So, I decided to try out different recipes with Mango this summer and Mango Kulfi is one of them. And trust me, Mango Kulfi is a 10/10 summer treat.

It is made using Mangoes, reduced milk, sugar and few spices. It will definitely please your tastebud.

I still remember how in my childhood days, I used to run behind kulfi wale bhaiya. He came on a cycle and called out the kids for his ambrosial kulfi. It felt like kulfi is calling me to itself, crazily, I ran behind. Those moments are still fresh in my mind like it all happened just a few days back. This one is the fondest memory of how I fell in love with Kulfis. Back then, there was only one or two flavors. So, when I changed my place and grown-up, I could hardly find local kulfi walas outside my house or street. So, my irresistible love for kulfis made me learn to prepare these incredible things at home. I know, I am sounding like an Epicure.

Mistakes I did at first time:

It takes a lot of courage to admit your mistakes🤫. But like everyone, I did blunders while making them. When I made the first time, they came out hard, firm like ice, which was not even close in texture to the real kulfis. I lost, I thought these things can’t be prepared at home. But out of my curiosity and eagerness to learn until I do it right. I learned it by my own instincts, because back then the internet was not much accessible.

Variations of Kulfis:

In most of the states of India, kulfis are served with falooda, sabja seeds, and roohafza. There are plenty of varieties in them:

  • Rabdi
  • Kesar
  • Oreo
  • Pan
  • Malai
  • Vanilla
  • Gulaab
  • Gulkand

I will try to post recipes of each one of them.

Few tips by me:

  1. Always reduce milk to 1/3rd of its amount to achieve the right texture. Because the texture is the most important key to make it perfect. Try to use full-fat milk
  2. Always bring the kulfi-mixture at room temperature before pouring them into the molds.
  3. Always freeze them in airtight containers to avoid the formation of ice crystals in between them.
  4. You can use khoya or condense milk too(if you lack patience in preparing them) but I will suggest not to use khoya or mawa in mango kulfis, it will change their original taste.
  5. And the last tip is to use Cardomam powder prepared at home to achieve the taste of heaven in this.

Step by Step Recipe:

Now,let’s move to step by step recipe of Mango Kulfi:

  • Take a heavy pan. Pour the milk into it and let it reduce on low-medium flame. Perfect kulfi needs patience. I pour 750ml of milk in my pan. And keep stirring it in between till 30 min to let it reduce to its 1/3rd i.e. 250ml. Stirring the milk is important to avoid sticking of the milk at the bottom of the pan.
  • Now mix 2 tablespoons of cornflour in 2tablespoon of milk. And add them to the pan when the milk got reduced. And remember to keep stirring so as to avoid lumps now.
  • Add chopped nuts, Cardamom powder, vanilla essence, and turn of the flame.
  • The consistency of the texture should be as shown below .i.e. as thick as it has sat on the spoon and not flowing.
  • Now cool down the mixture completely at room temperature. Then add mango pulp ground with sugar in it. Remember, if the milk is warm, then it will start curdling as soon as you add the pulp to it. And then whisk well till next min.
  • Add saffron strands( which is quiet optional) to enhance its flavor and the color.
  • Pour the mixture in the molds and cover it with aluminum foil and then keep the molds in air container to avoid icing of the kulfis. We want it perfect, creamy. Right !! Freeze it overnight or 6-7 hours. And Enjoy the delicacies 😊
