Strawberry Malai Kulfi is a twist on classic malai kulfi. Made with condensed milk, reduced or evaporated milk and cashew powder, it is a great dessert. Rich and deliciously simple dessert.
Summer is here with a vengeance and what better to stay cool but with delicious home-made kulfis and that too in strawberry flavour.
I adapted my earlier recipe of malai kulfi by adding strawberries. I initially didn’t stew the strawberries and just added them after crushing but the kulfi didn’t turn very creamy, so next time I stewed and cooked the strawberries first and then added them to kulfi. The water content of strawberries evaporated and gave a much better texture.
Don’t let this summer heat take over you and enjoy with creamy kulfi!
