Matka Gulcand Kulfi (Indian Style Ice-Cream)

Posted by-Kalki Team

Kulfi is an equivalent to Indian ice-cream. They are basically frozen dessert prepared with milk and other flavouring agents. They are just perfect during hot summer days or as an after-meal dessert.

Today we would like to share a kulfi with gulcand (rose petals jam) flavour and served in a matka / clay kulfi moulds. Hence the name Matka Gulcand Kulfi. To prepare this absolutely easy and delicious dessert


2 1/2 cups full cream milk

2-3 pedas (sweets), crumbled

1-2 tbsp. chopped cashews / mixed nuts

1 1/2 tbsp. gulcand / rose petals jam

1/4 tsp. cardamom powder

Method :

Heat milk in a wide bottomed pan and bring to a boil. Allow the milk simmer on medium flame till it reaches half its original quantity. Keep stirring inbetween.

Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and roughly chopped nuts. Mix well and keep simmering on medium flame, stirring till it further reduces to almost one third of its original quantity. It will have a rabdi consistency and slightly thick.

Turn off flame and allow to cool.

Once cool, place the mixture in the fridge for a few hours. (This helps reduce formation of ice crystals during freezing process)

Pour the chilled mixture into kulfi moulds and close the lids.

Place the kulfi moulds in the deep freezer and allow to set overnight or at least 7-8 hours.

Once the kulfi sets, place the kulfi mold in luke warm water for a few secs to help it unmould easily.

Insert kebab or ice cream stick in the kulfi and serve. You can garnish with more nuts.

Tips :

Full fat milk is essential for authentic flavor of kulfi.

If you do not have kulfi moulds, you can use stainless steel glasses or small katoris.

Kulfi expands on freezing, so do not fill to the brim.

You can skip step four and pour the milk mixture that is at room temperature into the kulfi molds.
