Mango Kesar Pista Kulfi

Ingredients to make Mango Kesar Pista Kulfi

  • Full fat Milk - 1-1/4 ltrs
  • cream - 150 ml
  • Condensed milk - 1 can or 400 gms
  • Rice flour - 1 tbsp+3 tbsp milk to dissolve
  • almond meal - 3 tbsp
  • sugar - 4 tbsp
  • Pulp of three medium sized mangoes - approximately 2-2/12 cups
  • saffron - 1/2 tsp saffron soaked in 2 tsp of milk.
  • Green cardamom - 6-8 crushed to a fine powder
  • Chopped pistachios - 2 tbsp

How to make Mango Kesar Pista Kulfi

  1. Mix the rice flour with 3 tbsp of milk and set aside.
  2. Dissolve the saffron in 2 tsp of warm milk and keep aside.
  3. Take the milk in a thick bottomed pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and allow the milk to simmer on a low flame, stirring from time to time till the milk is reduced to half the original quantity (approximately 600ml)
  4. Stir in the rice flour mixture and cook till the mixture thickens.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the condensed milk, cream, almond meal, sugar, saffron mixture, cardamom powder and mango pulp and mix well to combine.
  6. Stir in the chopped pistachios, mix well and pour the kulfi mixture into the moulds and freeze overnight or till it sets.
  7. To unmould, allow the kulfi to thaw outside the refrigerator for a few minutes, then insert a skewer or a fork into the center of kulfi to pull it out.
  8. Serve it as it is or along with some slivered almonds on the top.

My Tip:

I had to use sugar because the mangoes were not very sweet. If the mangoes that you are using are sweet enough, then the quantity of the sugar can be reduced or omitted altogether. The milk can be substituted with evaporated milk to assemble the kulfi quickly. The rice flour can be substituted with equal quantity of corn starch.
