Kesar Badam Kulfi

Kulfi is a popular flavoured frozen dessert made with milk found in the South Asia. It is a kind of ice cream. It comes in various flavours, including pistachio, malai, mango, cardamom (elaichi), saffron (kesar), the more traditional flavors, as well as newer variations like apple, orange, peanut, and avocado. Unlike western ice creams, which are whipped or overrun, kulfi is not whipped, it is solid, dense frozen dessert. Therefore, kulfi is different kind of ice cream. It is a distinct, category of frozen dairy based dessert.

3. Add saffron & cardamom powder.
3. Make a paste of cornflour with 3 tsp of water & add to the boling mixture.

5. Remove from fire and add chopped nuts.
6. Transfer the mixture to another pan & let this pan float in water to cool completely before freezing.
