Kulfi: velvety, creamy ice cream from India (that you can make without an ice cream machine!)

Must Try

Avelvety, creamy ice cream with spices that immediately reminds you of the latest Bollywood film? Which you can make without an ice cream maker? This dream of an ice cream is called: kulfi. This ice cream is very well known in India and can be bought on the street or, very earlier, door to door on hot days. This ice cream dessert is made from boiled or condensed milk and combines delicious flavors such as mango, cardamom or pistachios. Particularly tasty.

Ice cream without an ice machine

For the real connoisseurs among us, making good ice cream without an ice cream machine is often quite difficult. Without an ice cream machine you get a lot of ice crystals in the ice cream, in an ice cream machine these crystals are ‘broken’. But not in a container in the freezer.

A solution for this has been found in kulfi. Reduced and/or condensed milk   and whipped cream are used. These milk varieties contain less moisture, so you get fewer crystals that can freeze. The only drawback is that the ice takes a little longer to freeze (at least overnight) and melts again quickly. But this ice cream is so delicious, it doesn’t even get a chance to melt.

Spices and flavors of a kulfi ice cream

Kulfi comes in many flavors and shapes. But the basis is always whipped cream and condensed milk. Nuts such as pistachios or almonds are also often seen. Also mango, rose petals, saffron, cardamom, coconut, strawberries, chocolate, raisins or other dried fruit. Together or alone, everything is actually nice.

Tip : the shape of the kulfi is often a kind of inverted horn, but you can also copy it at home with cardboard cups (coffee to go) with a stick in it.

Now you want to get started right away at home to make this ice cream yourself. A nice variant is Spice trip with Paulami, where the kulfi is made from rhubarb and pistachios. Sounds fàn-tàs-tìsch.
