Badam Kulfi (Almond Ice cream)

Kulfi is a frozen dessert which is not whipped like the regular ice cream. It is more richer, more denser and hence it takes more time to melt. I found this recipe at Manjula's Kitchen and was very excited to try it. Thanks Manjula for this scrumptious dessert. 

A cold treat to end the summer! This lusciously smooth kulfi takes you to your dreamier world. It is infused with cardamom and added almonds for a nice crunch. The kulfi dissolves in your mouth and you just can't keep your spoon down. Do enjoy this Indian ice cream at your home. And here goes the recipe,

4 cups Whole Milk
1/4 cup Sugar
1 White Bread Slice
1tsp Cornstarch
1/2tsp Cardamom (Coarsely ground)
10 Almonds (chopped)
How to:

  • Remove the crust off of the bread and slice'em into squares. 

  • Blend together 1/2 cup milk, bread pieces and cornstarch to a smooth paste.

  • In a wide pan, boil the remaining milk at medium-high heat by stirring the pan continuously.

  • Once it comes to boil, let the milk cook for another 12 mins until it is reduced. 
  • Now reduce the heat to medium and pour the bread-cornstarch mixture and cook for 4 mins, until it thickens.

  • Then add the sugar and chopped almonds, mix well and cook for another couple of mins.

  • Finally switch off and add the cardamom powder.

  • Let it cool completely and pour the mixture in to a bowl. Wrap the bowl with a plastic wrap, making sure it touches the top of the milk mixture.

  • Freeze it overnight and serve cold garnished with more almonds.
