Hi Bold Bakers!
Some of my favorite Ice Cream flavors are ones that surprise my mouth and include exotic ingredients! If you are like me and you love to try new things you’ll love my recipe for Kulfi Indian Ice Cream! Kulfi is a traditional indian ice cream that can be flavored with lots of different unusual spices, nuts and fruits. I have had Kulfi flavored with rose, mango, saffron and orange, which is so refreshing and elegant! All Kulfi is usually characterized by being extra thick and rich, far more dense in flavor than American or English ice creams. With this in mind I really wanted to create a unique Indian inspired flavor that would capture the unusual flavor and texture of a traditional Kulfi!
First off, have you tried my Two Ingredient, Homemade Ice Cream without a Machine recipe? You simply whip up cream and condensed milk to create this amazing ice cream base without the need for an ice cream machine. You know that saying, “If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is…?” Well, in this case, it is that simple and it tastes that good. I have made almost 100 flavors from this two ingredient base including Lemon Meringue Pie, Mint Chocolate Chip and even my favorite flavors of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. You can probably tell by now that is a very versatile Ice Cream.
After trying a few different flavor combinations I decided on a pistachio and cardamom Kulfi! Pistachios are buttery in texture with a nutty earthy flavor. Cardamom is floral and spicy, one of my personal favorite spices to add to both sweet and savory dishes. I could have done just a pistachio Kulif recipe or just a cardamon Kulfi recipe… But the two flavors together are heaven. This flavor is perfectly balanced, extremely rich while being totally unique in flavor. Next time you want to take a mini trip to India or really impress your friends I suggest you give this recipe a go!
