No cook Kulfi , in a jiffy

Summer is here. The best part of Summer is you can enjoy ice creams without any fear of ending up with a runny nose.

I suddenly felt this urge to make ice-cream at home. I never tried to prepare ice-cream at home.

I remember freezing fruit juice in a steel glass when I was a kid and I was thrilled with the outcome. That was when my parents purchased a refrigerator 🙂 . I Never ever attempted an authentic ice-cream which is actually made with milk and cream. I didn’t want to buy another device for making ice-cream nor did i have the patience to mix the ingredients,  freeze , whip again till smooth , freeze again …whipping again ..again and again till you end up with a smoooth ice-cream. That’s not me.

I wanted to try the ice-cream thing again. I started watching YouTube and was looking for an easy way with few ingredients and a simple process.. hoping someone would have come up with an easy recipe..Luckily I  came across a No cook recipe to make Kulfi.  Wowww , I was excited .  Kulfi is an traditional Indian way of making a frozen dessert which is no different from the regular ice-cream. A Kulfi is traditionally made by thickening milk  on a stove for a few hours and adding powdered nuts and cardamom and then freezing it . Thickening is a lengthy process too. There was no condensed milk or fresh cream or milk powder in the earlier days.  We now get all these in the supermarket and hence there is an instant way to make Kulfi.

I was excited with this recipe and immediately bought the ingredients.

This recipe has just 5 ingredients :

Step 3 – Add the Milk powder to the Fresh cream and mix well.
