Growing up, whenever my mom brought out the kulfi for dessert, it was always considered a special treat. Cold, sweet and delicious, it was a family favourite. She doesn’t make it as often anymore, so I thought now would be a great time to revive it, especially because I get to be the taste tester.
I wrote down all the ingredients from my mom, which surprisingly were only a handful. I decided to put a little twist on it and make it into Kulfi Popsicles, using my new Vitamix to make the recipes as simple as possible!
– 2 cans of evaporated milk
– 1/2 tsp of ground cardamom (my mom recommends grounding them fresh)
– 3 to 4 tbsp of sugar, depending how sweet you like your desserts
1. Put the three ingredients in your blender in the order above. Blend until it completely mixed through.
2. At this point I started pouring the mixture into the popsicle mould. I found the spout on the Vitamix so helpful for this and nothing extra spilled out!
My mom however, says that I missed a vital step to bring out even more flavour, so I have to share it. Pour the mixture into a pot and bring it to a boil on medium heat. Then let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
Now I haven’t tried it yet, but you can also blend things in the Vitamix for a longer period to get them warm. Next time I make the Kulfi Popsicles, I’ll be trying that feature!
3. Then pour it into your moulds. I made 8 popsicle moulds and two mini muffin trays full of kulfi. The mini muffins are a perfect size to serve to guests as a dessert once they are frozen. Just put 4-5 five in a bowl and dessert is served.
4. Put everything into the freezer for a few hours. After that, they are ready to eat.
These are so delicious that I actually had to eat two in one sitting! Next time I’ll have to share my mom’s extra amazing Lychee Kulfi Recipe.
