- 1/2 L full cream milk or cow milk
- 1/2 cup pistachios (pista badam)
- 1/2 cup rice flour (can substitute with corn flour)
- 1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
- kesar essence
- 4 tbsp organic khand sugar
A glass of plain milk may not be exciting at all times. Children make a lot of fuss when it comes to that glass of milk. Why not serve a frozen Indian dessert instead— the tasty (and nutritious) Kulfi? Kulfi is essentially frozen rabri that is infused with the magic of cream, pistachios, the aroma of kesar, and the goodness of cardamom. Pista kulfi is one recipe that can be easily prepared at home if you have a handful of ingredients. On a hot summer night, nothing can be more exciting than a home-made pista kulfi.
Pista kulfi brings you the health benefits of milk and nuts in a single frozen dessert form. Pista kulfi is rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, carbohydrates and good fat. It is a nutritious treat for the children and young people who require loads of energy and nutrition.
How to make Pista Kulfi
Pista Kulfi is a traditional dish and is a wonderful way to combine nuts and milk. While pista kulfi and rabri sound similar, know that kulfi and rabri are very different.
Pista has a characteristic flavor among other nuts. In ancient times, kulfi used to be frozen in earthen moulds. So, if you can find clean earthen moulds to freeze your kulfi then you can achieve better flavors with an earthen aroma!
