If you have seen my selection of recipes, you may know that I love desserts. Kulfi, an Indian style of ice cream is another dish that I really like a lot. I often bought it from the local Indian grocers until I learned to make a version of it that is really, really good
We were treated to a delicious dinner and this wonderful dessert at my friend Aicha Hayat's home. She was very kind to give me the recipe for the home made ice-cream, Kulfi, which I have since adapted. But the credit for the basic formula which is somewhat unusual, belongs to Aicha.
The unusual ingredient is the use of bread. Aicha suggested using white bread but she has also used wholewheat bread which adds a little nutty taste. I have used a pistachio flavor pudding as well. You can try just about any flavors you prefer. This is the recipe I devised based on Aicha's recipe
Please note that I have chosen to divide the basic mix into 2 containers and then added the ingredients to sweeten them separately. If you are doing just one batch then adjust the amount of sweet products according to your taste.
To the other container add
Pistachio Kulfi Set in Freezer, now being sliced
Rich, delicious Milky Kulfi
I hope you enjoy using this recipe. I have always had success with it.
