Homemade Malai kulfi with only 3 ingredients

cow's milk, sugar & cardamom !

Malai kulfi !

This wholesome clean to the palate , with no extra additives Kulfi is very addictive , in fact with plenty of milk coming from our own Cow s , its a regular year round handy dessert in our household.

I sometimes also make it with a tin of condensed Milk , in this case I avoid any addition of sweetener /sugar  .

of course it does help in making the kulfi much creamier & has its own flavour.

Malai  Kulfi can be prepared within no time but takes 6-8 hours of chilling in the freezer to set to best consistency .
