Mango Kulfi

Hi Friends.Only three weeks left to enjoy this summer weather and we will be rolling into fall season before we know it.  I have been in a rut and havent been posting much ,but finally took a break from everything else and got back to blogging.

This weekend is going to be super hot in bay area and seems to be the  perfect time to enjoy kulfi. I have made it three times already this summer,it’s that good. Rich , creamy and delicious . Best part is you don’t have to make it only in summers, but all year round as I used Store bought Mango pulp .

Childhood memories and the food associated with those memories bring back so much nostalgia. As  kids ,every year we would look forward to going to the All India exhibition also called as Numaish (in urdu) in our City . It starts New years Day until mid February for approx 45 days and features variety of eateries , entertainment, joy rides  and shopping. Its  basically a one stop shop for all handicrafts , garments  from all over India including local food. Apart from shopping for my favourite Lucknowi Kurtis ( embroidered tops ) ,i would look forward to relishing the delicious kulfi . After eating all the popcorn , mirchi bajjis ( chilli fritters ) , Chicken / Egg puffs we would finish off with Kulfi at the end of the Night. Always a standard and everyone’s favourite. Oh how i miss those days !!! . Anyways ,didn’t know that you could  make it at home  and requires just few ingredients. Its  not churned and so is denser & creamier than western ice-cream, which makes it easy to make at home as you don’t need an ice-cream maker. Follow  the recipe below for this delicious mango kulfi .
