Kulfi (North Indian ice-cream)


1/2 teaspoon rose water / vanila essence
1 cup milk powder
pinch of salt
few pieces of ground cardamoms
1 tablespoon cornflour
plastic moulds
1 litre milk
1 tin Nestle Ideal evaporated milk
3/4 cup sugar (or according to taste)
1/4 cup slivered almonds (optional)
teaspoon flour


Boil the milk, sugar, salt and cardamom together. Cook on low fire till the milk turns creamish and is a bit thicker; remove from fire, dissolve flour and cornflour in a little milk and add to the mixture, stirring so that it does not form lumps. Put back on fire for another few minutes. Leave aside to cool. Add almonds and a little rose water and put it in the moulds. Freeze.
