Strawberry Kulfi Recipe / Strawberry flavored Indian Ice Cream

Kulfi is a frozen dairy dessert that is very popular here. It is denser and creamier than ice creams since it is not whipped like how we make ice creams. This can be made in different flavors and this strawberry season, I made some strawberry kulfi.



I love these matkas or small earthen pots! I used to save these pots when ever we used to buy kulfi from shops and I loved using them for this recipe! There are many ways to make kulfi, this is one of the easier methods.





Check out my mango kulfi recipe

Ingredients
  • Milk - 1 litre
  • Corn flour / Rice flour - 1 tbsp
  • Strawberry pulp - 1 cup
  • Sweetened Condensed milk - 1 tin (I used milkmaid)
  • Cardamon powder - a pinch
  • Pistachios and almond slivers
Servings - I got 4 matkas shown in the picture and 4 small sized kulfi moulds.



Method
1.Heat the milk and corn flour or rice flour in a heavy bottomed pan, over low flame till the mixture boils.
2. Let the milk simmer uncovered, stirring constantly.
3. Keep stirring until the milk reduces to almost half.
4. Stirring constantly prevents the milk from sticking to the bottom and burning. Also it prevents the skin (malai/aadai) from forming.
5. As the milk reduces, you will notice a thick creamy residue sticking to the sides of the pan. Scrape this back into the milk and stir to dissolve.
6.When the milk is reduced to half and thickens, take it off the heat and cool slightly. Stir at intervals to prevent skin from forming.
7. When the  milk is somewhat cooled, add the condensed milk and cardamom powder and stir vigorously to mix completely.
8. Add the strawberry pulp and mix thoroughly.
9. Add the chopped pistachios and almond slivers. Reserve some for garnish.
10. Once cooled pour into kulfi moulds or matkas and cover with aluminium foil and freeze for 6-8 hours or overnight.
11. Just before serving, garnish with chopped pistachios and serve.




Notes
1. You can add saffron strands too. I didn't have any.
2. If using kulfi moulds, remove from freezer just few minutes before serving and run the base in warm water or even tap water. Unmould in a plate, chop it into into small cylinders and garnish with pistachios and almonds.



Until next time,
