Homemade Kulfi

Homemade Kulfi 2

Homemade kulfi is quite a popular dessert in Indian homes which is not surprising given the long hot summer season. Our moms have been making these for ages in kulfi moulds, Kulhads or even Ice cube trays (very easy to serve pieces).

My mother also used to make amazing Kulfi though at that time I was not really very fond of Kulfi or Icecreams. Only Icecream I used to eat was Orange bar. Yes I know. My family also knows. It is no secret. I was weird πŸ˜‰ That is another story. So Kulfi was made in every household and it was loved by all.

This Homemade Kulfi recipe is by my dear friend and neighbor Nisha Chugh. Whenever she used to make this Kulfi she would keep some share for us. My hubby and son just loved it. She adds bread slices to the Kulfi which gives it a nice texture and body. It has been a huge hit with my family and I have been making it now for almost 2 years.
Somehow I do not mind giving that dessert to my kids which have milk as their main ingredient. And with summer holidays on kids are always hungry and they always want something cold so making Kulfi seems like the perfect choice.

We can add fruits also to this Kulfi to get a fruity flavor. I have made this with mango puree and my husband just loved it. I will post the recipe soonJ

    Your kulfi was delicious !!
    But kulfi without Faluda is like Alloo paratha without dahi and chutney.
    Faluda is coloured tasteless maida spaghetti served cold with Kulfi.

    Shall we say next Sunday πŸ™‚ ?
    Thanks in advance.
