Life had suddenly become very busy since last week. Kiddo’s exams, navratri, some parent activities in school kept me occupied. Though a little tired, I totally enjoyed this small change from usual routine. I have been meeting some new people due to this navratri festival and also some super enthusiastic parents in kiddo’s school.
So though I had a few posts in my drafts, I did not find time for the blogging activities. Now as the long weekend is approaching, I decided to do a post today.
These frozen treats was never my forte previously.But when I made the awesome vanilla icecream few days ago, I was dying to try more newer icecream recipes.But I did not want to use heavy creams and all. So I decided to make the Indian icecream or kulfi without cream.
It was delicious and everyone at my home enjoyed this one. Especially me and my hubby had quite a huge portion of it. It had the typical taste of any delicious kulfi you have eaten. I added some blueberry puree. It imparted a slight tangy taste to the kulfi , but did not dominate in taste.
Maybe next time, I plan to make some blueberry compote and add it over some plain kulfi for a different taste. I am learning more about making icecreams when I am making them and I do have a few other recipes in mind. I will be trying them sometime soon.
- Puree the blueberries in a blender
- Grind the nuts to a coarse paste.
- Soak the saffron strands in warm milk.
- Dissolve the cornflour in little water.
- Boil the milk.
- Add the condensed milk.
- Stir till the milk volume reduces to 3/4th of the original quantity.
- Add the cardamom powder.
- Add the nuts paste.
- Mix and pour the flour paste.
- It will slightly start to thicken.
- Add the saffron mixture.
- Keep stirring as it thickens more to a consistency of a cream.
- Remove from flame and allow it to cool for sometime.
- Add the blueberry puree.
- Stir nicely to mix well.
- Keep in freezer safe bowl.
- You can also pour in popsicle moulds or kulfi moulds.
- Keep in freezer for about 6 hours.
- Garnish and Serve.
To remove the kulfi from popsicle or kulfi mould, dip them in warm water and try removing them from the mould,
- You can use rice flour in place of cornflour.
You can also try with mango or strawberry puree.
