This is an Indian ice-cream that is rich and delicious. It is famously served in a conical shape and gets it from the container it is made to solidify in.  However it tastes just as good in any shape and any flavor :)

Famous Kulfi flavors are Malai, Mango and Pistachio but this recipe is just for the simple yet subtle Kesar Kulfi.

And strange as it might sound I had my first Kulfi here in the US and not in India. I have not been a big fan of ice-cream anyway because there are so many amazing Indian desserts that I rate way superior than regular cakes and ice-creams. However that is where the kulfi is different. This is tightly packed and tastes thicker than an ice-cream closer to a Basundi or Rabri. So this qualifies in my book as a sweet too!

Difficulty level : Easier than Easy

Time: 15 min (making time) 8 hrs (waiting time)

  • Condensed Milk sweetened - 1 can
  • Evaporated Milk - 1 can
  • Cool Whip - 8 oz
  • Pistachio - 1/2 cup (non-salted)
  • Almonds - 1/4 cup (optional)
  • Kesar - few strands (maybe 1/2 tsp)

Method de Preparation:

  1. Take the nuts and blend in blender.
  2. Add the other ingredients, blend together, pour in a container or kulfi moulds and freeze overnight or for about 8 hrs or so.
  3. What else is left, take and eat :)
