Kulfi is an eggless Indian ice cream. This is a simple and delicious dessert made with milk and sugar. Kulfi is very popular with street vendors, especially in summer. This is an easy recipe to make and Kulfi is an absolute treat for both young and old.

This recipe will make 6-8

kulfi_indian_ice_creamIngredients:

  • 4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon agar-agar (sea weed works as a vegetarian gelatin)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamoms crushed

Method

  1. In a heavy bottom pan over medium high heat boil the milk, heavy cream, and sugar together.
  2. After milk comes to boil lower the heat to medium and let it boil for about 35 minutes, stir the milk occasionally and clean the sides preventing milk not to make a ring on sides. Because of cream, milk does not burn in bottom of the pan.
  3. In a small bowl mix corn starch, agar-agar, and cardamom with 2 spoons of water really well making sure there are no lumps,
  4. Add to the boiling milk mix it well, boil for about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and mix the milk for about a minute.
  5. Let it cool and pour into the molds, use Kulfi molds, Popsicle molds or small cups. I am using 3 oz plastic cups.
  6. Freeze for about 5 hours, before Kulfi is ready to serve.

Suggestions

You can flavor Kulfi with saffron or vanilla and add the nuts of your choice.

  1. Manjula ji ,

    Namaste. I have tried a lot of recipes from your website and they are all amazing. My husband enjoys all the recipes. I wanted to try this kulfi recipe but I could not get Agar- agar powder / threads here in India. Is there any other substitute for it ?

    Looking forward to hear back from you.

    Thanks in advance

    Regards,
    Manjusha

  2. Mrs Manjula. I love you website.. I am definitely going to try your kulfi.. Not only Kulfi but others sweets and your different vegetarian food…Thank you so much for sweets recipe and food..
    Keep Up The Good Work.. Thanks again….

  3. Dear Manjula ji,
    I love your website, and, have learnt to make a lot of traditional indian dishes with locally available ingredients. I live in Australia.
    I have tried a lot of kulfi recipes but they seem to set hard and and full of cream & condensed milk.
    I am very excited to try out your recipe. My husband loves mango kulfi, my question is ..at which stage can I add mango puree? and how much. My second question is can I set the kulfi in a ice cream maker.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards
    Rashmi

    1. Deepthi,
      Agar-agar helps not having the ice crystals in Kulfi, I have learnt this recently after I have made Jello and have been experimenting it works really good if you have thread may be crush 2 threads and dissolve in 2-3 spoons of water, agar-agar is used in very little quantity other wise Kulfi will be too firm and will have different texture.

    1. Anuja,
      It is available in Indian or Asian grocery store, it is white powder or it comes in looking like white thread. You can also buy at Amazon. Agar-agar is used in very small quantity.
