Thandai Kulfi

Thandai kulfi
 

Kulfi is a popular  form of indigenous ice-cream. It is a frozen dairy dessert. It is not only popular in India but also all over the world. Its creamy texture and rich taste is heavenly.

Kulfi is prepared by evaporating sweetened milk combined with various flavors. Usually full fat milk is reduced to half or one fourth of the original quantity, then it is frozen in tightly sealed mould till it is settled well. Few kulfies are settled in earthen pots which is called mathka kulfi.

Nowadays various shortcut methods are available  for making kulfi which take less time. For thickening the milk, mawa or bread pieces or cottage cheese or condensed milk is used. Process may vary but the  creamy texture is still retained in the kulfi.

Holi is in 2 days , and tomorrow  is choti Holi which is also known as Holika Dahan, where people gather around a bonfire at night and perform rituals praying and hoping to destroy all their internal evils with fire. The festival also holds significance with respect to end of winter season and the onset of summer season.

  5. When milk is reduced to half of the original quantity mix corn flour with 2 tbsp of milk.
  6. Mix with a spoon and add it to the milk.
  7. Scrape the sides of the pan, the cream which sticks to the sides will come out easily, mix those with boiling milk.
  8. Now stir continuously and boil for 3-4 minutes more.
  9. The milk mixture will be slightly thick.
  10. In the mean time take 1/4th cup of warm milk , add milk powder and whisk well to make a lumps free solution.

  15. Pour this batter into kulfi moulds and fill 3/4th of the mould with the batter.
  16. Cover it tightly , you may use a cling film if you don’t have kulfi mould.
  17. I use a cup which has tight lids . so I am sharing the method how to make kulfi without mould.
  18. Let it freeze for 3 hours.
  19. After 3 hours , take the moulds out and insert an ice-cream stick or kebab stick in the center.
  20. Again freeze them for 6-7 hours.
  21. Once the kulfi sets , place the kulfi moulds in water for 2 minutes.
  22. Hold the icecream stick and carefully rotate it , the kulfi will come out easily.
  23. Serve immediately as it is or you may drizzle some strawberry coulis or rose syrup.
Recipe Notes
  • Remember thandai powder consists sugar so I have added less sugar with milk.
  • If your powder doesn’t contain sugar then you can  add more sugar.
  • It is better to taste the batter before pouring in moulds and add powder sugar if you wish.
  • Mix and fill the moulds ,then freeze.
