First things first,Rest in peace Summer 2010,you were taken from us so early,so quick...but I know I will see you again.
I really miss Summer,as much as I love Autmn,I miss summer!!
The warm sun rays on my back,ice lolly in my hand.
Ah ice lollies!
Isit wrong to crave kulfi this time of year?
Is it wrong to eat kulfi this time of year?
(Just look at it,how can you not crave it? oh how i love thee my dearest kulfi)
well I made some,and then I sat wrapped in a duvet infront of the blu-ray,and I enjoyed my spoonfulls of gorgeously creamy kulfi,yes I did!
And I made some,I made some Kulfi,and I made it good!
Oh so velvety and flavoursome...Mmmmm.
The only dissapointing thing was,it didn't have the traditional shape,but I am pretty sure that the shape doesn't effect the flavour!
This is how i made it:
- 3 cups Full fat milk
- 1 cup Double cream
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 Dessert spoon Rose water
- 6 Green Cardamom pods
- slithered pistachios (your desired amount for the kulfi,and to garnish)
- slithered Almonds (your desired amount for the kulfi,and to garnish)
- Rose syrup to decorate
I used little tart cases to freeze my kulfi in,because it is very rich,you do not need loads.
I poured all of the milk,cream and sugar into a thick bottomed pan with the rosewater and cardamoms and slowly reduced the milk by half (It is a very long process,but well worth the wait).
once reduced i alowed the mix too cool,i added in my slithered nuts.
I then added this mix to my ice cream mixture and churned until it was slightly solid,but still very liquidy (if that makes sense at all?)
I then placed this into my moulds and froze it!
best thing about the moulds? they just tear off,brilliant.
Decorate as desired and eat! devour,munch,obliterate...ah you get the point!
for a extra special treat why not decorate with some edible gold leaf?
P.s you do not have to have a ice cream machine,i have just put the mix into a large container and fluffed it up with a fork every now and then,till it is slightly solid then portioned it,this works fine too.
