Is there an Indian version of ice-cream? You bet! Try Kulfi. With it's oh-so-milky and mild cardamom flavors it's sure to have you hooked. This recipe makes enough Kulfi for 4 people.


  • 1 litre full cream/ whole milk
  • 1 can (400 gm) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup powdered milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted roasted almonds/pistachios cut into slivers (optional)


  • Put all the ingredients into a deep, heavy-bottomed (preferably nonstick) pan and blend with a plastic whisk (to avoid scratching the pan).
  • Cook on a medium flame till the milk mixture is thickened and reduced to 75 per cent of its original volume. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
  • Turn off the fire and add the cardamom powder and almond slivers. Mix well.
  • Cool the milk mixture completely and pour into a freezer-safe dish - any shape is fine. You can even use ice-lolly containers to make handy individual serves. Kids love them!
  • Freeze and when firm, unmould or scoop out desired portions and serve.

Just a little too sweet for me..., Member ohevshalomel

This dessert ended up being too sweet for me (I had to add milk to cut the sweetness when eating it). The recipe was easy enough, but the kulfi didn't freeze completely--I think that was my freezer's fault, though. I would try this again, but maybe with a colder freezer and less sugar. Thanks for the recipe!
