While I was thinking what different recipe should I post so that I meet both theme requirement, I saw Peddu walking around with the cover of the popsicles that I used for making Kesar Kulfi. He remembers that kulfi all of a sudden and asks me when I was going to make it again for them. That struck that I could very well make it again this time with chocolate flovour as my kids forever love anything chocolate.
First time I went to the supermarket I picked a pack of heavy cream, totally forgetting that I would need unsweetened khova and not cream. Well the day I was making it I realized my mistake and went about so many shops to get hold of the khova, everywhere it's mostly sold as sweetened khova. Finally I found the place that sells wholesale and they won't sell 100 gms. So I convinced them to give me 200 gms and back to making the chocolate flavored kulfis. I also added chocolate chip as extra attraction.
I followed the same recipe as for Kesar Kulfi, adding cocoa powder and chocolate chip to make Chocolate Kulfi with Chocolate Chip.
The kids are having a feast with Chocolate Kulfi and Chocolates. That reminds me that I have to use that cream to make ice cream. Well it's a chocolate heaven at home these days.
Step by Step Picture Recipe
When you see the back of your ladle covered you are done..
Place the chocolate chip on the bottom.
Add the rest to the kulfi mix.
Condensed Milk - 1 tin (400 gms)
Milk - 4 cups
Plain Kova / Unsweetened Khova - 100 gms
All purpose flour / Maida - 1 tbsp
Cocoa powder - 2 -3 tsps
Chocolate Chips - for garnishing
How to make Chocolate Kulfi at home:
In a bowl, take the flour and mix with milk to form a smooth paste. Likewise, blend the cocoa powder to a smooth paste.
In a thick bottom pan, take the condensed milk and milk. Put it in low flame and continue cooking.
Add the flour mix to the pan. Then add grated kova to the boiling mix. At this point the mix might thicken and kova may not mix well. you can remove, strain and pulse the residue for couple of times to get a smooth mix.
Then put it back and bring it to boil, while you are constantly stirring. At this stage add the cocoa mix. Stir well and continue cooking. When it really boils out, simmer and continue stirring for 5 mins in simmer.
Once done, allow it to cool completely. Stir it couple of times to make sure skin is not formed on top.
Wash the moulds, add the chocolate chips to the bottom. Once the chocolate kulfi mix is cooled, mix in chocolate chips.
Transfer to moulds and freeze overnight.
I got to taste this chocolate kulfi just a wee bit and know it was so delicious. If you are a chocolate fan, I am sure you would want to try this!
If you are going to use popsicle moulds like I did, then once it's frozen, dip them into hot water. The kulfi will easily come out.
Overnight is mostly enough, but freeze for some more hours if it's not enough.
One Kesar Kulfi somehow got missed and was in the freezer until couple of months back. I saw and was overjoyed. I enjoyed it all by myself saying I wasn't sure if it was safe for kids as it was kept for 3-4 months, trust me it was simply awesome..:)
