Easy Malai Kulfi

Rated as 4.83 out of 5 Stars

"Kulfi is best described as Indian-style ice cream. However, unlike ice cream, kulfi is not churned. This is a fantastic summer dessert. This is a quick and easy version of kulfi. I almost never make kulfi the old way any more."

WOW - it tasted like an artisan ice cream, so rich and creamy and fragrant with cardamon but very easy to make. Everyone asked me for the recipe. This will be a regular from now on. I might half...
