Mango Kulfi

I don’t know which is overwhelming – moving in into a new apartment or moving out of your current apartment. Moving out is more difficult, I feel. Especially if you have nice neighbors like I have.

I am going to miss Mittu a lot. Even my kiddo screaming ‘No, no, no….you are drinking too much! Stop right there!’ to her, because she drank 1/2 ml more from his share of Coke.

I don’t know what to expect in the new house, but I clearly know what I am going to miss. I am going to miss everything about our current home.

I am getting worked up when I look at the amount of work that need to be done. Packing, shifting and then unpacking. Electrical work, plumbing work, carpentry work. The list is endless.

I guess I should have a slice of this kulfi, to cool down a bit. Cool, sweet and mango-ey, you can’t help but forget about everything else.

Ingredients:

  • Milk                                                              :   4 cups
  • Bread piece                                               :    1 big, crust removed
  • Corn flour/Corn starch                       :     1 tsp
  • Sugar                                                            :     1/4 cup
  • Cardamom                                                 :       1/4 tsp
  • Mango puree                                             :       3/4 cup

Method:

  1. Remove the crust and chop the bread. Blend it with 1/4 cup milk and cornflour to get a thick paste.
  2. Boil the remaining milk in a thick, wide pan. Keep stirring to prevent sticking to the sides and bottom. Let the milk boil and reduce to 2 1/2 cups. It will take about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the bread paste and lower the heat. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add sugar and cook for another 5 minutes. Take off the heat, add cardamom and let it cool.
  5. Once its cooled completely, add the mango puree and mix. Pour it into kulfi molds or a shallow pan, if you don’t have one.
  6. Freeze overnight or for about 6-8 hours. At the time of serving, you can keep the bowl in a pan of hot water so that the kulfi is released from the bowl.
  7. Slice, garnish and serve.
