A sweltering hot day in summer always calls for a cool sweet treat to beat the heat! This is one easy recipe that can be put together in 10 minutes, provided you have the right ingredients on hand. Having seen this being made a few times now ( by my husband who owns the recipe), I can guarantee this will be a party favorite.
Ingredients: ( Makes about 15 small cups of kulfi)
Condensed milk – 1 can 14 oz
Evaporated milk – 1 can 28 oz ( Whole milk is obviously better, but you can use 2%, just to be a lil guilt free!)
Almonds- ½ cup, about 4 oz ( You can use slivered or sliced ones)
Unsalted pistachios – ½ cup, 4 oz ( optional)
Saffron threads 1 tbsp
Cardamom – 4-5 shelled
Whole wheat bread – 2 slices ( Yes, bread is the secret ingredient in Kulfi to bind everything else and give it the texture)
Whipped cream – 2-3 tbsp ( Cool whip works best)
Plastic Cups – 4 oz
Ice cream sticks
Blend all the above gently in a blender till the nuts are crushed well. Pour into small 4 oz cups. Refrigerate for about 2.5 hrs in the freezer. Insert ice cream sticks when it is about semisoft in consistency and let if freeze for a couple more hours. After cooling for about additional 3 hours, these irresistible goodies will have lick me written all over them!
