After the winter recipe that I shared yesterday, it's going to be Summer special dishes that suit our current weather to the T. It's been unbelievably hot the past few days, I am normally not a person who feels cold or hot that soon (well you still can't cal me thick skinned!), even I am feeling the heat right now. Well that only calls for more Ice creams right!
This was also because of what Chinnu told me after he ate the Chocolate Sundae
. He opened the freezer and saw lot of frozen milk packets. Very solemnly he came up and asked what I was planning to do with those frozen milk. I asked him back what he has in mind as a suggestion. For which he replied that, instead of wasting those milk packets, I could do ice cream for him! Well I decided his statement just locked the idea of what I had already planned.
As I always say, they only like chocolates. However how many ice creams with chocolate can I make. So thought something with mangoes should be good with the season on. This also came about because Athamma told me that Peddu had asked when we would get them Mangoes. Now that made me get them the same day and I made Kulfi the very day with Palvoka. Everybody loved it so much and it was so creamy as well.
The mangoes as such weren't sweet, but as kulfi it was so delicious. I was supposed to get khova, however for that I had to again visit a shop that only sells khova in kgs and not in grams. The last time I visited that shop and asked for 250 gms, he really gave me a look. I said how much would I want for a home made ice cream. He replied that his customers always bought in kgs. I said I wasn't running a shop nor would I be using litres and litres of milk.
Anyway I finally convinced him to part with just 1/4 kg and proceed to make some kulfis. This was a year back. I didn't really want to step into the same shop to meet the same treatment. Instead I simply got Palvoka, which is actually sweeten khova. Now it's even better that I don't have to bother adding sugar. After cooking, the sweetness was more than enough.
Sending this to Pavani, who is hosting Kid's Delight
, themed on "5 Ingredient Fix"
Mango pulp - 2 cups
Palkova - 100 gms
Milk - 100 ml
Cardamom powder a pinch
How to make Mango Kulfi
Wash and peel mongo to extract pulp. Keep it aside.
Boil Milk and once it's boiled, simmer it khoya and cardamom powder till khoya dissolves.
Remove from fire, cool well and add mango pulp. Mix well.
Transfer to a freezing tray and freeze till it sets.
These are normally set in kulfi moulds. But I served it more as an ice cream
If you are using moulds, make sure to immerse in hot bowl and then gently tap to remove the frozen dessert.
If you refer you can garnish with chopped nuts on top
If you want to use just Khoya, then add about 1/2 cup and follow the same method
