Kulfi always evokes memories of childhood.
During our summer vacations,we used to wait for the ' kulfiwalllah' and the ringing bell from his cart brought us out running from the house. A 50 paisa kulfi bought us a lot of happiness. The joy of licking the stick clean of every morsel! And waiting for others to finish cos ours got finished too soon..Sometimes we used to ask him to dip our kulfi in the the thick and sweet Rabdi. That was a special treat for us. Mmmm....wish I could be there right now.
Summer is associated with mangoes in India. Its everywhere... in shakes, ice-creams, smoothies and juices. So why not in Kulfi ?!
This is an easy recipe for the busy working mommies who can make it in the morning and serve it up for kids post lunch.
You will need
Mango pulp- 1 and 1/2 cup
Sugar- 3 tbsp
Pistachios-1 tbsp, broken or chopped into thin slices
Mix all the ingredients together in a electric mixer, except pistachios.
Check that the sugar has to be completely dissolved.
Put a pinch of pistachios in all the mold and then pour the mix. Top it up with the remaining nuts, if any.
Freeze till its set, overnight is best.
Enjoy on a hot sunny day...or anytime really :)
Makes 12 kulfis appoximately depending on your mold size.
