Malai Kulfi (Almond & Pistachio Ice Cream)

I have been going through lot of cooking books which I have. And I found this recipe in one of them. Its a quick recipe for us lazy ones 😀 . I am going to try this soon but the thought of calories in this makes me shudder. But this maybe a good one for a party 🙂 . This recipe is taken from Flavours of India by Patak’s foods.

Serves : 8      Preparation time : 25 min       Freezing time : Overnight


397 g can Condensed milk
410 g can Evaporated milk
300 ml Whipped cream
1/2 tsp Ground Cardamom
Few drops of Vanilla essence
25 g Almonds, ground
25 g Pistachio nuts, ground plus extra
Whole nuts to garnish


  1. Put the milks and cream in a large pan and bring it to boil. Simmer for 15 min, stirring constantly.
  2. Stir in the cardamom and vanilla essence, then remove from the heat and cool completely.
  3. Mix in the ground nuts and pour into 8 x 100 ml moulds. Freeze for 6 – 8 hrs.
