Nutty Kulfi

Kulfi a favorite for everyone and for many it brings childhood memories. I still remember the kulfi man especially duirng the summer months, who would come on his tricycle and my friend and I would sit near our gate waiting for him with two rupees in our hand.If we aren't there he would stand at the gate and call out kulfi for a while. Had been wanting to make it at home, but had been putting it away as I don't have the kulfi moulds. Finally decided that having moulds is not important but to make it right.
So I called Bindiya, my best friend for years and asked her for the recipe and as usual she was very sweet and gave it to me too..and voila it was the perfect kulfi and everyone loved it... If you have the moulds good for you otherwise just pour it in a freezer safe container and enjoy it whenever you want to..

You need:-
Sweetened condensed milk - 1 can
Evaporated milk - 1 can
Heavy whipping cream - same as the evaporated milk
Pistas - 2 tbsps
Cashewnuts - 2 tbsps
Almonds - 2 tbsps
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp

Method:-
1. Crush the nuts in the blender first.
2. Add the evaporated milk, condensed milk and the whipping cream
3. Add the cardamom powder
4. Blend it for a minute or two and then pour it in the container and freeze it for 6hrs
5. Again blend it in a blender or food processor for a few minutes and then put it in the freezer again.
6. By blending it twice or thrice, you will get a soft kulfi or else it will be like hard icecream.
P.S. - you can also add a saffron if you wish, but just soak it for a few minutes in the whipping cream or evaporated milk before blending it.
To make Mango Kulfi, just add mango pulp to it along with the other ingredients.
Now I don't have to wait to get back to India to enjoy a delicious kulfi as I can enjoy it right at home and share it with my son who loves it too..

Yum....reminded me of rabri kulfi that my mom makes along with jelly and falooda.I particularly don't like the one in moulds..my mom (and now me too)refrigerate the rabri in ice-cream trays,and later on just remove them with blunt knives(losen the sides of kulfi from the tray )and u will get square shaped kulfi,without moulds or scoops,and that way u can have small portions too..Urs is a bit different recipe but really tempting..so this diwali i m gonna treat my family with some kulfi falooda :-)
