Malai kulfi


500 ml full fat milk

4 tablespoons sugar

Nuts as per taste


  1. On medium-high heat, bring the milk to a boil in a milk pan.  
  2. Once the milk starts to boil, reduce the heat and boil for another 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently to avoid the milk burning at the bottom. 
  3. Reduce the milk to a thick rabdi-like consistency and add sugar. Mix well to dissolve. 
  4. Nuts can be added at this step for more crunch. 
  5. Cool down the mixture and set in an aluminium kulfi cone mould.  
  6. Insert a wooden stick in the centre of the mould and freeze for 7-8 hours.
