Easy Mango Kulfi - Summer Special - Step by step

   Mangoes are in season now. We bought  case full of mangoes. Rohith and I would have anything with mangoes. Since I had excess, wanted to try this kulfi. In the recipe , the thickening agent is corn flour . Initially , I used  1 tbsp of corn flour. But that made my kulfi so stiff. So I reduced it to 2 tsp and then the consistancy was perfect. My mangoes were moderately sweet, so used 1 cup of sugar. If you are going to use canned mango puree, then reduce the sugar, as canned mango puree will be sweeter. Coming to an end of this "Summer Special Series".

I took the pictures of kulfi easily, but couldn't capture my son with his kulfi properly. He started wandering with the kulfi. A blogger's life is not easy :) He is my future model . 


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking time : 5 mins
Chilling time : 4 hrs
Serves : 7

Ingredients:
1.Whipping Cream - 1 cup
2.Mango pulp - 1 cup
3.Sugar- 1 cup or to taste
4.Corn flour - 3 tsp or 1 tbsp
5.Cardamom pwdr - a pinch
6.Pistachios - 1 tbsp
7.Water - 1 tsp



Method:
* We are going to puree the mango. You can also use store bought mango puree.  Scoop out the pulp from the mango and put it in the blender. I used 2 small mangoes. I got  about 1 cup of pulp.



* Blend the mango puree finely without any lumps.


 * Take whipping cream in a bowl. Take a small bowl, mix corn flour with water and mix.


* Mix sugar with whipping cream and mix. If your mangoes are too sweet, we can alter the amount of sugar.











* Now slowly add the corn flour mixture to the whipping cream and mix. 
* Take the mixing bowl and cook it in medium flame. We are just heating mixture for the corn flour to mix with the whipping  cream. At one point, the mixture will become thick .Turn off the heat and leave it for 5 mins or untill it cools .

* Add powdered cardamom powder and mix.



* Now add blened mango puree to the whipping cream mixture. Use a whisk to blend the mango into the whipping cream mixture.

* Add crushed pistachios to the mango mixture. We can add any nuts to the kulfi. But they have to be chopped finely.


* Pour the kulfi mixture to the moulds and cover them with lids or a piece of aluminium foil. If you are going to pour the kulfi mixture to glasses, just insert a ice cream stick to the glass . This will help us to take the kulfi out easily. Alternatively, we can freeze the mixture in a bowl . While we are about to serve, un mould the kulfi and cut .Serve them with nut garnish.

* Freeze them for atleast 4 hrs or overnight. When we are about to serve, just run the kulfi moulds in hot water . This will loosen it a bit.  Serve the kulfi with the stick.




Notes:
* We can use store bought mango puree for the kulfi.
* Don't add too much corn flour, then the kulfi will not have perfect consistancy.
* We can also grind the nuts and add it to the whipping cream mixture.
* Adjust the amount of sugar ,according to the sweetness of the mangoes.
* While taking the kulfi out, gently roll them with your hands and then dip in hot water.
* Blend the mangoes to the chipping cream, when it is cold.
