Kulfi Ice Cream-Kesar Badam Kulfi-Kesar Malai Kulfi

Summer is here. Cold desserts are always a boon to beat away the heat. Kulfi is a very popular Indian ice cream which has a creamy texture and an extremely awesome taste, which is very simple to prepare as it doesn't need any whipping. All you need are the basic ingredients which are usually available in your kitchen. All that we need is some milk, sugar, corn flour, some almonds or even pistachios and a few strands of saffron. You can also use fresh cream instead of corn flour. I prefered the low fat option. Go ahead with your own choice and prepare this whenever you feel like eating a Kulfi!!


Full fat milk - 1 ltr (I used 2% milk)
Corn flour - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Almonds - 8-10 nos, finely chopped
Saffron strands - few


  1. Soak saffron in some warm milk (1 tbsp) and keep it aside. 
  2. Dissolve the corn flour in some water, say 1 or 2 tbsp and set aside.
  3. Add the milk to a wide pan, preferably a non-stick one and bring to a boil. Scrape down the sides and stir now and then to avoid sticking to the sides and bottom. Add the dissolved corn flour and sugar and mix well. Also add the saffron dissolved milk. Heat over medium flame, scraping and stirring every now and then until the milk thickens and reduces to half of the original quantity.
  4. Cool completely. Pour into the kulfi moulds or in any freezer safe bowl and freeze for atleast 5 to 6 hours or until set.
  5. To unmould, allow the moulds to remain outside the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes and then unmould. Or you can also run some cold water over the moulds and your job is instantly done. 
  6. Start digging in immediately :)
