While checking for indigenous chaats local to a city / region, I stumbled Upton this fruit kulfi sold in the streets of kolkata . It not only has fruit pieces in d kulfi but is also set in fruits like oranges etc ; Although I would have set this in fruits, it didn’t set well so had to use normal popsicle moulds.
I made some twists to a recipe by tarla dalal and it was very well received by all at home. For the kids’ mini vacation , this was a perfect antidote to the scorching summer days ! You can use most fruits but I worked with what I had ..
Prep time – 10 Mins , cook time – 20 Mins ; set time – 12 hours minimum .
Makes – 6 medium sized pops
Fresh full fat milk – 1/2 litre
Condensed milk – 100 ml
Almonds – finely chopped 2 tsp
Apple – 1 medium – chopped fine with the skin on (I used red gala variety)
Cinnamon powder , nutmeg powder – to taste
Saffron – a pinch
Bring milk and condensed milk to a boil and keep stirring on low flame , scraping down the sides till it reduces to half and a thickish consistency
Add cinnamon n nutmeg powder along with saffron and mix well
Once cool, Add chopped almonds and apples and mix well. Apparently banana also works, but I added only apple.
Pour into kulfi / popsicle moulds and set till firm. Unmould n serve immediately
If you need a creamier mixture quickly, stir in 2 tsp of cornflour slurry into the milk mixture and it will thicken quickly.
Be sure to watch the sides and bottom from burning towards the end of the thickening process – do not leave the mixture unattended
