Hello, Foodies and Buddies!
It’s time for another Dish of the Week column and on this edition, we have a favourite of Indian-dessert lovers everywhere: Kulfi!
Chef Shweta’s superb Kulfi has captured the imaginations of Foodies all over our platform and rightfully takes its place as our Dish of the Week.
So, what is Kulfi exactly? Chef Shweta answered, “Kulfi is known as an Indian ice cream. It is a lightly spiced dessert with the flowery aroma of cardamom and vanilla.”
It is a dish that holds special significance to Chef Shweta. It is one of her favourite dishes and she learnt to make it from her mother.
“When we were kids; me and my group of friends used to run behind Kulfi-walas every time they use to come to our neighbourhood. Eating Matka Kulfi and Stick Kulfi takes me down memory lane,” added Chef Shweta.
Our awesome chef even provided a full recipe for the dish:
475 ml of whole milk
125 ml of condensed milk
2 teaspoons of regular sugar (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 teaspoons of fresh cream
1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom
4 tablespoons of chopped pistachio nuts
Stir the milk and condensed milk together in a heavy-bottomed pan and boil it for 10 minutes.
Add the sugar and cardamom.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, add fresh cream and vanilla essence; stirring 10 minutes more.
Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature; fold the pistachio nuts into the mixture.
Pour the mixture into ice lolly moulds and freeze until solid – about 2 hours.
An amazingly yummy recipe with just one major challenge according to Chef Shweta. She said, “You will have to constantly stir it, till you get it perfect. It’s time-consuming, but when its ready, you can’t keep yourself from eating it!”
When quizzed on what other dishes Chef Shweta was looking forward to making famous on FoodyBuddy, she replied, “Chicken Kabuli Rice and Litti Chokha!”
And finally, this is what Chef Shweta had to say in closing, “I just want to thank you guys for introducing such a nice platform where we can show our culinary talent.”
Thank you, ma’am, for making our platform the amazing success it is today and all the best to you going forward 🙂
