Presented here is a simple Badam Pista Kulfi recipe. Kulfi is a flavoured frozen dessert that comes from the Indian subcontinent. Western icereams are whipped whereas the Kulfi is not whipped, resulting in a solid frozen dense desert.
The recipe for this delicious treat is provided by our first guest blogger Neeku.
From the entire Ambrosia team we thank you for your enthusiasm and participation.
Here is the recipe :
1 Can of store bought Condensed Milk
2 Cans of store bought Evaporated Milk
* Note the proportion is 1:2 whatever measurement you choose to take*
1/2 Cup of grated almonds (badaam)
1/2 Cup of graded pistachios (pista)
1 gram of Kesar (saffron)
1/3 cup of whipping cream (optional)
Take a bowl and add all the ingredients. Mix it well. Take sauce pan and pour the mixture and bring it to boil two times.

Let it cool and simmer and then pour the mixture into your kulfi moulds. Here we have used the muffin aluminium moulds.
Let it freeze...

to ENJOY it later.

The above recipe was tried and tested and cataloged by me. It was an awesome treat for the palate leaving everyone who tasted it wanting more of it. Also after discussing with the contributor - one can also add crushed Cardomom (Eliachi) to get some extra flavor.
Also I liked to rename this dessert as Muffis - combining the flavor of Kulfi into a mould of Muffin both real sweet treats.

Hope you guys enjoy this delicious treat.

  12. @solitaire

    good question - as per my calculations - its about 250 calories per piece - will wait for Neeku to confirm it though.

  13. @hobo

    kewl....hope you make it too

  14. @hiren

    agree...kulfi is a very delectable dessert...miss the one at juhu or chowpatty but beleive me this was real close to that original one.

    Evaporated milk - even I was initially confused but Neeku confirmed that it is available in India.

    Here is a brief description from Wikipedia
    Evaporated milk, also known as dehydrated milk, is a shelf-stable canned milk product with about 60% of the water removed from fresh milk. It differs from condensed milk, which contains sugar

  15. @aneri

    you sure can make it and surprise people...it is real simple :)

  16. @gunj

    Nice job! Looks yummmmyy!!

    Hey Ceedy, are you sure this is only 250 calories per piece? Wow! (Can you please tell me the size of the muffin molds?)

  26. @anindita

    great....you enjoyed it.....

  27. @hobo

    will wait for your input...

  28. @carolinagal

    Thanks...it was awesome...I wish I cld share it here ;)

    Ok re: calories...it is not full proof - what I did is take the individual ingrediants and looked up their calorie content on this website http://www.thecaloriecounter.com/
    and deduced the calorie per piece.

    This recipe once boiled properly fit into two trays of 2" round muffin moulds....

    Well indulging in one once is not harmful I guess...even if it is a little higher in calories...

    enjoy and hope this answers your question

  29. @ Carolinagal: Thanks =) well as ceedy says... it should be approximately 250 cals... also to make it fat free... you can get the unsweetened condensed milk and add substitute sugar for sweetness... that should bring the calorie Really Really down...

    **Well indulging in one once is not harmful I guess...even if it is a little higher in calories**..Ekdum sachi vaat kahi!

    Thanks! Thats a brilliant idea. I will try it with Splenda.
