Strawberry Kulfi


Strawberries. I had only tasted the artificial srawberry flavour when I was little. I must admit, I liked it very much. When I was about 8, I was introduced to the flavour of real strawberries. I think it must have been ice cream that I ate in the US. I had a lot of trouble accepting the new flavour as "strawberry" even though I liked it. Today, I enjoy both flavours equally. I can still relish a glass of Strawberry Nesquik as much as I enjoy fresh strawberry milkshake.


I made this kulfi when fresh strawberries were in season. I think I made it during the Valentine's Day weekend. I didn't use any artificial colour and as a result, the kulfi looks a bit pale. But it was delicious.


1 litre Milk

1 tbsp Flour

1 cup Strawberry Pulp

1 tin Sweetened Condensed Milk (I used Amul Mithai Mate)


Heat the milk, condensed milk and flour together and bring to a boil. Do this over a low flame and stir continuously as the condensed milk has a tendency to stick to the bottom of the vessel and get burnt. Cool completely. Mix the strawberry pulp into the milk mixture. Fill the kulfi moulds with this mixture and freeze until set. When set, dip the moulds in warm water, unscrew and hold over a plate. The kulfi slides out effortlessly.


This makes a perfect dessert after a nice Indian lunch on a hot afternoon. Try it! And off this goes to Priya as she hosts this month's edition of FIC-Rose/Pink.

luckysanjana said...

hi , i thin the kulfi looks great pale........i dont think it would have looked that interesting if it was brigher red.....It looks perfect. Temme is that all just bring the milk mix to a boil and then let it cool.....dont you have to simmer it a bit????

Swapna Pravin said...

I didn't tasted strawberry kulfi. Will try this soon :) lovely entry.

Raaga said...

Wow... I am glad all of you loved this entry. It is great and we're savouring it slowly. I served this again at a dinner party last evening. The colour is a bit pale but the taste is just great.

@Rusty Neurons: You should get the molds in Vyapar Kendra/Arjun Marg Market or Needs in DLF IV. Any bartan shop will have them.

@LuckySanjana: I didn't simmer it... the flour helped it thicken I think.

@Namratha: I just blended the strawberries to a puree. Didn't buy pulp as such. :)
