Malai Kulfi is a delicious ice cream that everyone relishes during the Summer season. Kulfi has similarities to ice cream in appearance and taste; however it is denser and creamier.It comes in various flavors. The more traditional ones are cream (malai), rose, mango, cardamom (elaichi), saffron (kesar or zafran), and pistachio. There are newer variations such as apple, orange, strawberry, peanut, and avocado. Unlike ice cream, kulfi is not whipped, resulting in a solid, dense frozen dessert similar to traditional custard-based ice cream.

Kulfi is traditionally prepared by evaporating sweetened and flavored milk via slow cooking, with almost continuous stirring to keep milk from sticking to the bottom of the vessel where it might burn, until its volume is reduced by a half, thus thickening it. More recently Kulfi is prepared from evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk and heavy (double) cream. Then sugar is added and the mixture is further boiled and cornstarch-water paste is added. This paste thickens the mixture, although it is boiled for an additional few minutes. Then flavorings, dried fruits, cardamom, etc. are added. The mixture is then cooled, put in moulds and frozen.

I have used unsweetened Khoya (Mawa) to the milk to enrich its flavor. We can also use milk powder or condensed milk instead of khoya. The milk boiling in low flame till 2/3rd of its quantity is evaporated is the key to this rich Kulfi. The boiling process is time consuming but not complicated so if we have patience to wait till the milk thickens then we will be thrilled to taste these yummy Malai Kulfi.
