No Churn Creamy Mango Kulfi

London is sunny! Our prayers have finally been answered! In order to celebrate, I thought I'd try my hand at making no churn mango kulfi and I have to say, the results are pretty impressive. The recipe is fairly simple: equal amounts of condensed milk and whipped double cream, some vanilla extract, chopped mangoes and you're good to go. The trick is to choose mangoes that are more pulp than fibre- nobody wants stringy bits in their kulfi! I always prefer Alphonso mangoes because they are sweet, cream and not that stringy.

Servings: 15-16 scoops
Prep+cooking time: minimum 6 hours to chill, but preferably overnight

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sweetened condensed milk 
  • 2 cups double cream, chilled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped Alphonso mango (or any other mango that is smooth and doesn't have fibres)

Instructions

1) Prepare your empty 1 litre icecream box with lid or have a sturdy tray and cling film ready.

2) Pour 2 cups of condensed milk into a mixing bowl with the vanilla extract and give it a quick stir.

3) With a hand or electric whisk, whip the double cream until it is thick and can hold stiff peaks (like the picture above). If you whisk the cream too much it will churn into butter so be careful and keep a close eye on the texture.

4) Fold in the whipped cream and mangoes to the condensed milk. Gently pour into a container. It has to be at least a 1 litre capacity as the kulfi will expand. You can use a clean empty icecream box or a tin with a flat bottom and cling film. I have done both and they turn out fine!

5) Chill for a minimum of six hours but you should leave it overnight to get best results. The best thing about kulfi is that because condensed milk has such low liquid content, it will not form ice crystals and have a crunch. It will always turn out creamy!
