Pista Kulfi

Have you tried recipes without the utensils required? I have done that done like that many times.. One such example is this Pista Kulfi which I made long before I had owned a Kulfi mold. The recipe here also did not use the mold, but a bowl and then cut the kulfi into few pieces.. Pista Kulfi is an ice cream which can be made without the ice cream maker. Transfer them to small cups and insert wooden sticks into to get the kulfi look. Do not ignore the plastic paper part as it is critical to the recipe. This is a very simple dish which is lesser in fat compared to traditional ice creams. Obviously served frozen!!! This was one of the first ice creams I made.. Surely a delicious and simple one..

IngredientsWhole Milk – 5 Cups
Cardamom – 4
Sugar – ½ cup
Bread – 1
Corn Starch – 1 tea spoon
Pistachio – ½ cup
Boil 4 cups milk on medium flame, with stirring every 30 seconds
Once it comes to a boil, reduce the flame and boil for another 12 – 15 minutes
Remove the crust in the bread and cut it into small pieces
Add bread pieces, Corn Starch and ½ cup milk into a mixer / blender and make a smooth paste
Once the size of the milk is reduced to about 70%, add the paste and keep on flame for around 5 more minutes
Add sugar and cardamom and keep on flame for another 2-4 minutes
Add the sliced / broken pistachio and switch off the heat
Let it cool to room temperature
Once it is cooled down, transfer to a glass bowl and cover it with Cellophane paper (ensure that the paper touches the milk). You could also transfer them into kulfi molds..
Keep it in the freezer for around 6-8 hours
Remove from the freezer, keep it in warm water for about 30 seconds and transfer it into a plate
Cut it into small pieces and it is ready to serve.
