Kesar Pista Kulfi

Hello Friends,
        I remember the day when Divya Pramil gave me an opportunity to host the first post of SNC event. It was a privilege for me to host the event and I was super excited. That was the beginning of the event, it started with very few members and now its flooded with so many talented bloggers....

SNC event has become a huge hit in a very few days, All credit goes to Divya and all my blogger friends, who participated in the event with full enthusiasm.
This time again I got a chance to host the event and I decided to make something sweet.

Festivals are going to start from this month, already Ramzan is going on, then Rakhi, Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam, Durga Ashtami ........Big list of festivals will make big list of guest visiting your house :)

Why not WELCOMING your GUESTS with our famous North India Kesar Kulfi ??? YUM YUM ....
So today's challenge from North Team to our lovely South Team is Kesar Pista Kulfi ...........


 Ingredients:
1 litre milk
1/2 tin condensed milk (I used Amul)

1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbsp cornflour
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/3 cup chopped pistachios 
1/4 tsp saffron (kesar)
1/4 tsp rose water



Method:
  • Dissolve cornflour in 1/2 cup milk and keep aside.
  • In the meanwhile pour the remaining milk, condensed milk ,and sugar  into a heavy bottomed pan and bring it to a boil.


  • Keep scraping the cream (malai) from the sides of the pan, this will give thick texture to the mixture.

  • Keep boiling on low flame it it reduces to 3/4 quantity.
  • Pour the cornflour mixture into the mixture. Mix well and keep stirring to avoid lumps formation.

  • Stir well until the mixture becomes thick.
  • Add cardamom powder, saffron and chopped pistachios. 



  • Remove from fire and allow it to cool. 
  • Add rose water. Mix well.
  • Now pour the mixture into kulfi molds or Popsicle molds,cover with the lid and freeze for 3 to 4 hours.



  • Remove from freezer, insert ice lolly sticks as handles and again freeze until firm.
  • When the Kulfi is completely set, keep the mold under tap water for a second & then slowly pull out the kulfi and serve immediately.


I am part of Northern Team:
