i have already shared malai kulfi, mango kulfi recipe and basic kulfi recipe. as compared to these recipes, this no cook mango kulfi is a quick recipe. quick to whip up and then freeze. no second time whipping required in this recipe. since this is a cheat’s version of kulfi, there were a bit of ice crystals in the kulfi. but you wouldn’t really mind the ice crystals, considering the ease of this recipe.
i have an ice cream book from dollops which was a gift, for many years. this book has many quick ice cream and kulfi recipes. this no mango kulfi recipe is from this book. in fact, i made mango kulfi many times in summers, both with condensed milk and khoya. just did not get time to post these recipes.
this no cook kulfi is made with whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, cream and of course mangoes. add mangoes which will yield a smooth non fibrous pulp. i used kesar as well as alphonso mangoes. hence the color is a pale yellow.
while serving kulfi you can add some rose water or kewra water or serve it plain. i served the kulfi both plain and as kulfi falooda too. we usually have kulfi with falooda.
