Mango kulfi is a rich, creamy and milk based dessert that is very famous in India. There is many variations in making kulfi by adding condensed milk, khoya or evaporated milk. Corn flour is added to make the milk thick but I didn’t add it as it would give a pasty taste in kulfi. I made kulfi by making rabbi first by cooking milk until it thickens. When mango is added, this takes the taste to next level making it heavenly. Mango kulfi is going to be my most often summer recipes as we enjoyed this dessert in this extreme hot climate here.
