Thandai Kulfi | How to Make Thandai Kulfi from Scratch

Kulfi or Ice-cream? What do you like more?

I prefer kulfi over a scoop of ice-cream any day. 


This recipe has been there in my drafts for a long while. I had made these to use up the last bits of the Homemade Thandai Syrup I had made for Holi. Since I had not posted anything in a long while here, I decided to share this one to cut short my absence from this space.

By the way, have you ever made Thandai Syrup at home? If not, try it the next festive reason - I bet you will never want to buy a bottle of readymade syrup ever. It comes out THAT GOOD. 

Coming back to the recipe for today, I just used the thandai syrup to flavour and sweeten the thickened milk used for making these kulfis. Since Thandai syrup is already flavoured with nuts, cardamom, saffron, etc., there is no need to add anything more.

These kulfi were just perfect - with just the right flavour of Thandai. I am going to make these again whenever I made the thandai syrup. Let's check out the recipe.


800 ml full-fat milk.
3 tbsp milk powder
1/4 cup thandai syrup ( Have you tried this Homemade Thandai Syrup yet?)
2 tsp cornflour stirred in 1 tbsp milk


1. In a non-stick pan, heat milk. When it comes to a boil, turn the heat to medium and let it simmer till it reduces to about half in volume. It can take about 25-30 minutes. Keep stirring in between and scrap the sides too.

2. Add the milk powder, cornflour mixture and stir well. Heat for another 5 minutes. Corn flour helps in further thickening the milk and thus giving it a creamy texture. Add the thandai syrup and stir again. Turn off the heat.

3. Let it cool down to room temperature and then fill the liquid into the kulfi molds.

6. Freeze it for 8 hours or overnight.

7. Take the kulfi out of the freezer, 5 minutes ahead of serving.  Unmould and serve immediately.

Quick ~ Easy ~ No Cook ~ Malai Kulfi

I am a big Kulfi fan and that must be evident from the number of kulfi recipes I have posted on this blog already. And still when I spot a new recipe, I can't help trying it out myself. When I saw this super quick, no cook kulfi recipe in Miss Masala by Mallika Basu, I had to try it out. I was in a great hurry to click it and taste it so, I dipped the kulfi molds in hot water a little longer and hence you can see the liquid oozing out a bit. But, it was every bit delicious..

I had posted this Cardamom Kulfi made the traditional way long time back and it is still my favorite. But given that, sometimes we do not have or want to spend so much time in stirring the milk till it is thickened, I posted this Malai Kulfi that uses condensed milk and needs just  a fraction of time and some cooking. Then I was introduced to Dulce de Leche and couldn't help trying out another variation of kulfi using it and hence Dulce de Leche Malai Kulfi came into picture, it has a slight caramel flavour which i love. It was a no cook recipe as well if you are using stored bought can of Dulce de Leche. But this time this quick malai kulfi is the simplest you can make and it is just a matter of 5 minutes. Of course the freezing time is excluded. So, if you are pressed for time and are craving for kulfi, this could be the answer. I got 6 kulfi (80ml mold size) and freezed the rest in a freezer safe container. The original recipe has crushed pistachio added, but I have omitted it as I like the Malai flavour better.

400 ml can of evaporated milk
300 ml fresh/double cream
6 tbsp sugar
2 cardamom powdered


1. Add everything in a blender and whiz until the mixture doubles in volume.
2. Pour the mixture into Kulfi molds and freeze overnight.
3.  Allow the molds to remain outside the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then unmold it or run hot water over the kulfi molds to unmold it even quickly.

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!

Click here for the printable version

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.


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!
