Kulfi is a traditional Indian frozen treat—it has similarities to ice cream in appearance and taste, but is denser and creamier.
This is Rosy Soobrattee’s recipe for the traditional Indian dessert. She won this week’s $25,000 frozen treat challenge on Recipe to Riches. This is one of the easiest recipes we’ve taken on—don’t be afraid of the flavor combinations; it makes for an awesome dessert.
- 2 cans whole fat evaporated milk
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups 35% whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons instant dissolving sugar (fruit sugar/fructose)
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 teaspoon rosewater
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios

**The only modification I made to the recipe is that I poured the desserts in silicon cupcake cups (both mini and regular) because my double door freezer isn’t wide enough to store a baking dish. If you go with this method, dip the bottom of the silicon cups in warm water for easy removal.
(One of the toughest parts of this recipe was hunting down pistachios– for some reason they were sold out everywhere.)
(The large ‘cupcake’ size Kulfi was a big hit– perfect for plating)
