Kulfi is the Indian version of ice-cream, which is made without eggs or an ice cream maker. The basic ingredient of kulfi is milk, which is often flavored with dry fruits.
Traditionally the kulfi involves boiling the milk until it thickens up. It is made by mixing thickened milk, condensed milk, and whipped cream. The full-cream milk is boiled in a heavy bottom pan on medium heat. It is allowed to simmer on a medium-low flame for 20 minutes.
The dry fruits are then added to the mix along with the mango puree. The mixture is then transferred to the kulfi moulds with an ice-cream stick inserted in the mould. The mould is then placed in a freezer to set. With this mango kulfi recipe, you will be able to make kulfi within 25 to 30 minutes.
- Aamras (Mango juice)
Aamras typically means mango puree or pulp, and it is one of the popular desserts in Maharashtra and Gujarat.
It is traditionally served with poori (Indian bread) and is a favorite of many people across the country. Alphonso mango is most commonly used for making the aamras. Mangoes are peeled and squeezed to take out most of the pulp. The pulp needs to be mashed nicely before adding other ingredients such as sugar, dry fruits, and saffron. Whisk the pulp for a good blend, add sugar if needed and aamras will be ready to serve.

Mango Shrikhand is a popular yogurt-based sweet delicacy, which is usually served with poori. Curd is hung in muslin cloth for 3-4 hours. The mango puree is then added in the blender along with hung-curd and sugar. You may add crushed cardamom or saffron as per your choice. Blend the prepared mixture well and keep in the freezer to cool for some time. Mango shrikhand is ready to serve. You may garnish it with fresh mango pieces as well.
