Dessert Of The Day: Heavenly Almond Malai Kulfi
Most of the people in India are somewhat like me: just can't finish a meal without dessert. Our sweet tooth doesn't look for a reason to crave. Hence, we at The Brunette Diaries have taken it upon ourselves to provide you with the easiest and tastiest of dessert options. All our recipes are lazy-chef-friendly and can be wrapped in under 20 minutes. Don't believe me? Check out some of our sinful sweet treats:
Today's dessert is the kulfi, which also happens to be the Indian classic version of an ice cream. Now kulfi doesn't need any introduction, it's one of the most loved desserts since generations. You're not alone if you think that you should stick to the readymade ones because making it at home will obviously take a lot of time and energy. Most of us are similarly mistaken. That's why today, we're gonna take the regular kulfi a notch higher by making almond malai kulfi with the help of an easy and quick recipe! Sounds heavenly already?
1 cup of almonds
2 cups of sweet condensed milk (Mithai Mate or Milkmaid)
6 tbsp cream
1/4 th cup of milk
A pinch of saffron
Let The Kulfi Madness Begin!
Grind the almonds in a grinder. Mix the ground almonds, cream and condensed milk in a large mixing bowl. Now add the milk and saffron to the mixture. Toast the pistachios and chop them. Now add them to the mixture and use a blender to remove any lumps from the mixture.
Since the true fun of digging into kulfi is eating it out directly from wooden pots or matkas, try getting hold of some beforehand. Set your kulfi into little matkas and cover with butter paper. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours until your almond malai kulfi is ready! Wasn't that easy?
If you're preparing this for guests, remember to start early and keep the required refrigeration time in hand.
A classic matka of flavourful kulfi is all you need on a hot summer day, and with the summer season right at our doorstep, it was our responsibility to share this dessert goodness with all of you ;)
