PISTACHIOS AND ALMOND KULFI



Kulfi is a very famous North Indian dessert made from milk, sugar and nuts. The milk is slow cooked for a long time till it is reduced to less than half. It is extremely rich and creamy.
The dessert most likely originated in the Mughal empire in the 16th century.

The most famous flavours of kulfi are saffron, malai (Cream), pistachio and almonds.
today I have chosen to post the recipe of Kulfi made from pictachios and almonds. They are just what I need during this summer! I don't know how many times I had to stop myself from opening my freezer and helping myself to this! Cons of being a food blogger I guess!



INGREDIENTS:
evaporated milk - 1 can (net weight 292g)
condensed milk - 1 can (net weight 392 g)
almonds - 1/4 cup soaked in hot water and skin removed
pistachios - 1/4 cup
cardamom powder - 1 and a half tsps
fresh milk - 1/2 cup +1 cup
a pinch of saffron
cornflour - 1/4 tsp
sugar - 1 tbsp
chopped pistachios and almonds for garnishing - 1 tbsp (optional)

PROCESS:

  • In the small jar of your blender, dump the almonds and pistachios. Add the 1/2 cup of fresh milk and give it a whizz till you have a nice, smooth paste. keep aside.
  • In a saucepan, boil the 1 cup fresh milk on low flame till it becomes 3/4 the quantity.
  • Now take about 2 tbsps of this milk in a small bowl and soak the saffron in it. keep this aside 
  • Now to the milk in the saucepan, add the nut paste and keep stirring for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the  condensed milk, evaporated milk. cardamom powder, saffron milk and the sugar. Keep stirring so it doesn't burn. 
  • After about a minute or 2 add the cornflour so that it thickens slightly. Taste. if you want it more sweeter add more sugar.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • You can either pour into popsicle moulds or in a cake tin like I did. let it cool to room temperature and them freeze for a minimum of 8 hours.
