I’ll be honest, I haven’t been cooking a lot these days because of the insane amount of humidity and the fact that I can’t breathe most of the time. but i tried out a recipe today that i felt should DEFINITELY be posted, i experimented, and it turned out to be a great success!
Kulfi is a traditional Pakistani frozen dessert which usually is made from thickened cream and nuts. I’ve played around with a recipe I had on hand and the result was delicious! Cold, nutty, milky ice cream topped off with even more nuts promises the taste of the subcontinent in every spoonful – the addition of rose water made it taste royal, almost perfumery. Its easy to pull off and tastes spectacular! On we go to the recipe!
- 2 x 390g sweetened condensed milk
- 2 1/2 cup cream
- 3 cups milk
- 10 pods cardamom, split
- 2 tbsp rose water
- 1/4 cup pistachios
- 1/4 cup almonds
Grind the Pistachios and Almonds in a food processor until finely blitzed but not powdery. Set aside.
In a large heavy pan, bring the condensed milk, cream and milk to a boil, adding the split cardamom seeds. Simmer for ten minutes until mixture changes color, regulating, stirring with a spoon.
Add the chopped up nuts and rose water and stir well making sure they are combined. Chuck this in the freezer for 3 hours until set.
After the ice cream is set, put it out till it softens for a bit and then blend the mixture. Now line your pan with clingfilm and re-pour your mixture in the pan. Set it in the freezer for two hours.
And now, its ready to serve!
Add more crushed nuts if desired!
So refreshing after a tiring day – and nuts, nuts, more nuts!
Don’t forget to remember me when you make it!
