Dulce de Leche Malai Kulfi



If you do not know what 'dulce de leche' is, then the title of this post may sound a bit intimidating. But, let me assure you this is one of the easiest recipes and quick recipes and once you try this one, I am sure you will make it again. I must add a word of caution here, it can get really addictive.


Dulce de leche is just 'cooked' condensed milk. I had made it for these Banoffee pots and I used the leftover dulce de leche for making these kulfis. I am a big kulfi fan and can have them at any time and of course, weather doesn't count. I can be wearing sweaters and be tucked under a blanket and still can gobble down a whole lot of them. You can find the other kulfi recipes I have posted, here.


Refer to this post to see how I made dulce de leche. If you are apprehensive about trying it that way then read this post by aquadaze where she has described a number of ways to make it, including one in microwave. Sure, that would be a time saver and will come in handy. But, I have discovered something better. On searching a bit more about in google I found that Nestle Caramel is nothing but dulce de leche. I had searched for it in the grocery store and had taken for granted that it would be selling under its original name. So, the next time I have a serious urge to make these kulfis, a trip to the super market will help me a lot. Stocking them up at home can be dangerous!

Ingredients:


180ml dulce de leche
120 ml double cream or fresh cream
120 ml milk, I used low fat.


Yields 6-8 kulfis depending on the size of the molds.


Process:


1. Add all the ingredients in a mixer jar and whiz for a few seconds.
2. Pour into kulfi molds and freeze over night.
3. Allow the molds to remain outside the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then un mold it or run hot water over the kulfi molds to un mold it even quickly. Enjoy!


To sum up in a word, they were just 'AWESOME'. I already have my favorite recipe of the year! Do try it out!

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!

Malai Kulfi ~ Using Condensed Milk~ A Quicker Version!

As promised I am back with another recipe for Kulfi. Unlike the Cardamom Kulfi I had posted earlier, this one is much quicker excluding the freezing time and yet no compromise on taste. I had bookmarked this recipe long back from Tarla Dalal site and tried it a few days back. What makes it quick is the use of condensed milk and milk powder. It has a melt in the mouth texture and I am simply bowled by the simplicity of  the recipe. This recipe is a keeper as it is quite effortless.

I used the exact measure as given in the site and got 6 kulfis (80 ml each) + extra (about the measure of 2 kulfi) which I froze in a freezer proof bowl. You can enjoy this malai kulfi by itself or serve it with falooda and rose syrup.

Perfect to beat the heat. I know it is just an excuse for me as the summers here in Ireland are not like the one in India as the temperature here once in a while crosses the 23 C mark. Still, I do indulge in the cold treats!

  • Straight from the freezer :-)
    Malai Kulfi:
  • Ingredients:
  • 500 ml full fat milk
  • ¼ cup milk powder
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp almond powder (optional)
4 green cardamom pod seeds finely powdered.


Process:

1. Combine all the ingredients together and bring to a boil. Add the powdered cardamom.


2. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium heat and turn of the gas. Cool completely.


3. Pour into kulfi moulds and freeze overnight till firm. Depending on the size of the moulds, no. of kulfis might vary.

4. Allow the moulds to remain outside the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then unmould it or run hot water over the kulfi moulds to unmould it even quickly.



5. Enjoy it on a hot day!
