Bread Kulfi

This is tried and true recipe out  from womens'era magazine this recipe is about 25 years old I can still remember mom preparing them for me and we still love it. very simple list of ingredients required...its no fuss recipe.
Excellent recipe for those who stock up excess bread at home we normally have a stock of fresh and stale bread at home always...:)
6-8 Slices Bread
1/2 Liter Milk
1 Tbsp Corn Starch
2 Tbsp Pistachios and Almond
5-6 Strands Saffron
1/2 Tin Condensed Milk
4 Tbsp Badam Milk Powder

First Step:
  • Earthen pots are used for kulfi.
  • I've show 3 different variations to set the kulfi.
  • If earthen pots are used it should be washed thoroughly and soaked in water for 24 hours before use. 

 Second Step:
  • Soak almonds and pista in lukewarm water soak till its easy to remove the skin.
  • Remove the outer skin and chop finely. 

Third Step:
  • Cut the edges of the bread and add to mixer jar grind and prepare pure white bread crumbs.  
  • In heavy bottom pan add milk and allow to boil on medium flame.
  • Add the condensed milk to the milk and keep stirring.

  • In a different bowl add the corn flour and badam milk powder and milk with little milk make sure there is no lumps.
  • Add the saffron strands to the boiling milk and keep stirring slowly add the corn starch mixture and keep stirring till the milk forms a custard consistency remove from flame and allow to cool. 
  • Add the bread crumbs to the mixer jar and add the half the custard to the bread crumbs and blend well till combined add the other half of the custard mixture blend again till well combined.
  • Distribute the mixture to either popsicle molds, bowl or earthen pot.
  • If earthen pot is used to set kulfi make sure to cover with foil and place in freezer to set.
  • It takes 4 to 5 hours to set.
  • Once the kulfi is set serve after lunch or dinner...enjoy...Happy Cooking...:)

  8. Vidya,I have been so much waiting for this Kulfi recipe!I do have a big sweet tooth for sure and enjoy all desserts,but what makes me go bonkers with temptation is ice cream and frozen desserts.
    Little trivia - The moment I read the words 'Womens'Era',I surely grinned,I remember me reading the recipes in the magazine which my mother used to get when I was a little kid.Love cooking since then.
    The Kulfi surely looks delicious!

  9. vidya, if you blend it wont it become watery.
    It looks very good hope my kid also like it.

  10. Vidya, I have been a regular visitor of your website. I luv the unique techniques which you use to simplify recipes. I have tried a couple and very happy with the results. I am a native of Bengaluru too...
