Kesar Pista Kulfi

Continuing with summer desserts its time for Kesar Pista Kulfi .

Apparently King Akbar mentions the Kulfi in his 16th century journals thus you find  Kulfi and Falooda combination is deep rooted in North India's culture especially Old Delhi.
Having spent most part of my childhood in Delhi ,kulfi has a very special place and brings back some lovely memories!!

Kulfi or Indian ice cream, as its popularly known,is rich,creamy and dense.Its laden with Almonds,Pistachio and delicately flavored with Saffron and Cardamom.

Kesar Pista Kulfi

Makes 6-8 small kulfi moulds

4 cups full cream milk
1/2 tsp crushed Saffron strings
6 tbsp sugar
2 Green Cardamom,crushed
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds
2 tbsp pistachios sliced

Boil the milk on medium heat till its reduced to half .Add the saffron while its boiling.Add sugar and boil for another 7-8 minutes.Remove from heat .Add cardamom and nuts.Divide the mixture between the moulds and freeze until set.


  1. Hi Ritu! Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. :)

    This kulfi sounds so delectable. I love the flavor elements.. cardamom, pistachios.. almonds! Yum!

    About the pizzelles.. They serve wonderfully with a zabaglione or a gelato.. Or you can simply dust them with a little powdered sugar. And they look great on a dessert table. :)

  2. Saffron is used as medicine Cough, Asthma, Fever, Epilepsy Patients, Pimples/Acne and Skin diseases, Alcoholism, Tuberculosis, Cataract and skin diseases.
