kulfi plate
As i mentioned in my Matka kulfi post , i love kulfi ice like anything.. Next to kesar kulfi , i love this milk kulfi (paal ice) ..When i was young I used to go to my granny’s place (Tirunelveli) for every summer vacation and i enjoy “cup ice , paal ice & kuchi ice ” buying from vendors selling in a small cart. Every time I buy two varieties , hold them in both the hands and lick them side by side..Winking smile..Ok, coming to this post , I took this recipe from Spice india online. This recipe has milk and condensed milk. In the actual recipe , the quantity of condensed milk is more.But i wanted to use less condensed milk. So i used little corn flour to give the thickness..One sad thing is i couldn’t bring pure white colored  ice cream .It was half white in color. The addition of condensed milk changed its color..But it tasted great..I was completely satisfied with the outcome Smile..Kids would love this sure. Even we adults won’t stop eating one Winking smile.Sen loved it a lot & asked for more , hehe..
paal ice cream

  • Boiled Milk – 2.5 cups
  • Condensed milk – 1/2 cup
  • Corn flour – 3/4 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1 – 2 tbsp (adjust)
  • Vanilla essence – Few drops OR cardamom powder- 1/8 tsp
  • Dilute corn flour adding little milk .
  • In a wide bowl , mix the boiled milk , condensed milk , sugar and diluted corn flour . Mix well till sugar dissolves.Boil this mixture for sometimes till the raw smell of corn flour emanates completely.. Mixture will also become slightly thick.Switch off the flame and add vanilla essence..
kulfi tile
  • Let it cool completely. Then fill in kulfi moulds ,cover it with a plate or silver foil and freeze it overnight or minimum of 4-6 hours..The next day , take the mould and keep it immersed in water for few seconds..Kulfi comes out easily.
  • Serve immediately.

  • Adding condensed milk helps avoiding the ice crystals form while freezing. It gives a creamy texture..
  • In this recipe i used milk and condensed milk in the ratio of 5:1.So i added corn flour to bring the thickness and sugar to taste.
  • U can make this ice cream in a minute easily by just mixing the milk , condensed milk , vanilla essence and pour in kulfi mould directly without heating..But in this case , u should add milk & condensed milk in the ratio of 2:1..U don’t have to add corn flour & sugar ..
  • For making the same with kesar flavour , soak few threads of saffron in warm milk and add to the mixture instead of vanilla essence. It gives a natural yellow color to the kulfi..
