Mangoes what even more should I say? The king of fruits and my love for mangoes….Mangoes are in season and especially alphonso. In India my uncle used to send us boxes of alphonso mangoes from Bombay which taste amazing and the fragrance…Oh! boy what should I even say i still remember the fragrant of those mangoes. It gets difficult to get good alphonso here in US, this time I made sure to search beforehand from where I can get good alphonso mangoes. So finally I ordered boxes of mangoes and when the boxes arrived I couldn’t resist myself from digging into them.
Me and my husband ate almost all the mangoes and just left with few mangoes so I thought to make these stuffed kulfi which I have heard a lot about. I was not sure will I be able to make it but yeahhh i did it..!! 🙂 and they were really awesome, my husband was kind of impressed with me…hehe
So wanted to share the recipe with you all so you guys can make for your family and enjoy this delectable kulfi.
Kulfis are famous Indian frozen dessert which is one of the popular street food which is similar like ice cream but it is very dense as it is made with rabri which is a thickened milk but the taste of the kulfi is divine.
So here is the recipe of stuffed mango kulfi..
- Alphonso mangoes
- few strands of saffron( kesar)
- 1.25 litre full fat milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- pistachio for decoration
- Pour milk in pan and bring it to boil on a low flame.
- Reduced the milk until it becomes half. (It has to be thick)
- Add sugar and saffron and cook for 1 minute.
- Now keep the kulfi mixture aside and let it cool.
- Now take some good ripe mangoes.
- Cut off the top and tail end of the mango (unpeeled), and stand it on a flat surface. Slowly, carefully, mark the part where the seed is, using a sharp knife. Little by little, loosen the seed using the knife, and pull it out with your hands. You could use a pair of tongs for the same, too. Make sure you don’t remove too much of the mango’s flesh along with the seed. Also, make sure you don’t create a hole in the bottom of the mango, in trying to remove the seed. (This might sound very tough, but it really isn’t. Practice a couple of times, and you’ll be able to do this perfectly.)
- Stand the mango inside a small bowl, and place the crown on it.
- Fill the kulfi stuffing into the mango almost till the top.
- Put the crown back on.
- Place the bowl with the mango in the freezer, and let the kulfi set for at least 3 hours.
- After 3 hours or when the kulfi has gotten almost solid, gently peel the mango using a peeler.
- Put the mango back in the freezer, with the top, and let it set for at least a couple of hours more.
- When you are ready to serve the dish, remove the bowl from the freezer and cut the mango kulfi into pieces , garnish it with some pistachios .
- Serve the stuffed mango kulfi pieces immediately.
