My next mango recipe in the mango series for the summer is the utterly creamy and delicious Mango Kulfi recipe. Couple of years back when I tried my Mango Popsicle, I so badly wanted to try out mango kulfi too but couldn’t do so before the mango season ended.
Last year, I almost forgot about it and had only made Mango Sorbet. To amend all that my sweet dad got me special Kulfi moulds and I knew I had to put them to use this mango season – paving way for Creamy Mango Kulfi made at home.
Year on year, I religiously try mango based recipes and post them here. But at times I wonder if it is a little too much, or even come across as desperate to post so many mango based sweets. But then, I think to myself – food should give happiness and if that’s true, I should stand by what makes me happy. If summer doesn’t mean mangoes, I don’t know what else will. As if on cue, I received a beautiful comment from Arch, especially on my mango recipes and that validated everything that this blog is about 🙂
I decided to go all instinctive with this mango kulfi recipe and really didn’t even wanted to follow my fail proof malai kulfi recipe. On a similar whim, I decided to make a video of my Mango Kulfi and went about adding ingredients. Until I tried the end result and how it could give stiff competition to any store bought Kulfis did I convince myself that I made some amazing Kulfi at home. It is really simple and requires minimal effort for something as delicious as this!

How to make Mango Kulfi | No Churn Easy Mango Kulfi –
Detailed recipe of making Mango Kulfi | No Churn Easy Mango Kulfi –
- In a mixer jar, add 1/4 cup of almonds along with 2 cardamoms and powder it fine. Set this aside.
- In a bowl, add milk and bring it to boil. Next add fresh cream and let it heat up on a low flame.
- As the milk boils again, add ground almond powder and quickly mix it well before it turns lumpy.
- Keep boiling on low flame until the mixture starts thickening.
- Add sugar and mix well until it completely dissolves. As the mixture becomes thick again, remove from heat and let it cool down completely.
- Mix in the sweet mango pulp with the boiled milk mixture.
- Sprinkle some pistachio slivers at the bottom of the kulfi mould. Pour the mixture into Kulfi moulds or Popsicle moulds and sprinkle some more pistachio slivers on top. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours until it is set.
- To serve, gently push an ice cream stick into Kulfi and dip the mould in water at room temperature. A slight twist with the ice cream stick will remove the Mango Kulfi off its mould.
- Serve immediately.
- To make sweet mango pulp, add cut mango slices along with 1-2 tsp of sugar an blend until smooth. Skip sugar if the mangoes are sweet already.
- I didn’t use any thickening agent to make Kulfi. Cooking almond powder with boiled milk helps thicken it.
- Other than almonds and pistachios, cashews can be used too.
- Add a few strands of saffron to the boiling milk for a good aroma and color.
