Matka Pista Kulfi

Kulfi is Indian favorite cold dessert for hot summer afternoons. They are generally served in small clay pots which we call Matka. The ice cream sets well in clay pots. In many parts of the country, it is a tradition to set curd too in clay pots. For serving kulfi to 4 people, you need the following ingredients:

1 ltr full cream milk
1 bread slice (Use brown bread to give kulfi a nice color. You can also use normal white bread)
1 tsp cardamom powder
1/4th cup sugar
1 tsp corn flour
2 tbsp pistachio

Method to cook:

Cut the bread from side to remove teh brown part.
Mix bread, corn flour and 1/2 cup milk. Blend till smooth in blender.
Boil milk in a wok and bring it to boil. Lower the flame to prevent milk to spill over. Remember to continuously stir the milk to prevent it to stick to the bottom.
Add the corn flour-bread mixture to the milk. This will give milk a nice thick and smooth consistency. Cook on low for 5 minutes more.
Add sugar and keep the milk boiling on low flame for 2-3 minutes.
Add pista and cook again for 2 minutes.
Add cardamom powder and switch off the flame.
Let the mixture cool down.
Pour the mixture in an air -tight container and put it in freezer. The ice-crème will take 6-7 hours to set.
Alternately, can pour the mixture in clay matkas and cover the top with aluminum foil. This prevents the ice crystals to form and kulfi is soft.
Enjoy the kulfi with family and friends.
