Print Friendly and PDF

matka kulficlose up


I still remember the days  i ran behind the Bombay kulfi walahs to buy mouth watering , 1 rupee , cone shaped kulfis.Drooling.I  really crave for those kulfis now Raised Eyebrow…Last month we had been to my native and there i tasted Matka kulfi ,  my hubby’s favourite..After tasting it, i got an idea to try my ownIdea.So I washed those matkas and took home Wink..I tried and Yes,I got the same tasteThumbs-upWhistling..My husband was very happy when i prepared this for himSmile..Generally, Kulfis are prepared using a combination of condensed, evaporated and whole Milk..But i prepared in a very simple way..Here is the recipe,

Ingredients
  • Milk – 500 ml
  • Sugar – 2 –3 tbsp (adjust )
  • Cardamom powder – 3  - 4 pods (powdered )
  • Saffron threads -  few
  • Almonds and pistachios – Few (finely chopped )
Method
  • Take the milk in a Microwave safe wide bowl  .The bowl should accommodate at least two litres of milk to avoid spill over.Please see to it..
  • Microwave high for 10 minutes..Remove the bowl and stir well.If u want u can remove and collect the skin( paal aadai), blend it at the end to a paste and add to the milk ..But I mixed the skin as it is along with the milk..
  • Microwave again till the milk is reduced to half in volume.. (My MW took nearly 25- 30 mins to complete the process....Adjust the timings according to urs..)
  • Then add sugar, saffron threads and cardamom powder, mix it and MW high for 5 mins..Let the sugar dissolve well and boil…
  • Finally add the chopped almonds and pistachios and mix well.
  • Pour into the moulds and freeze it for a minimum of 6 hours..
I got these cute kulfi moulds from my SIL and i poured some mixture into these moulds to serve my kid and of course for meOpen-mouthed.. Eat immdiately after u take out from the freezer because it gets melted very soon ...
