What is kulfi?

Kulfi is a popular ice cream recipe from India. But the roots of this recipe is originating from Mughals, and it is also popular in Pakistan. It is made with milk, mava, sugar, cardamom, and some nuts. It tastes creamy. The texture of a perfect kulfi has to be grainy(not smooth). Most of the time we use mava to thicken the milk, but you can also use milk powder in place of mava. Mava is thick milk solids that are made by evaporating the milk on a high flame. Until it starts to thicken. Then add mava with evaporated milk. Add sugar and other flavorings. Then pour this mix into the molds. You can use kulfi mold or paper cups for this. Then freeze it overnight.  make sure to make your kulfi with scratch by evaporating the milk because it tastes way better than the shortcut method.
