Mango Kulfi

How is this…to have homemade mango kulfi this summer…we had fun while making it… Make it and ENJOY… 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups milk (about 500 millilitres)
  • ¼ cup milk powder
  • ½ cup condensed milk (I used sweetened condensed milk)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup mango pulp

Preparation:

Combine all the ingredients except the mango pulp and condensed milk in a non-stick pan and mix well. Bring this mixture to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes till thickens. Cool completely.

Add the Condensed milk and mango pulp and mix well.
Pour the icecream into individual kulfi moulds
Freeze till set. Or you can wait till its half set and place a icecream stick in the center of it (the half frozen cream will help the stick to hold it in place). Refrigerate again till completely set.

Unmold the Kulfi. And Kulfi Icecream is ready.

Enjoy!…….:)

Tips

  • I had regular mangoes on hand. I took the pulp of about 2 mangoes and make 1 cup mango pulp
  • If you haven’t kulfi mould then you can use paper coffee cup and remember to freeze the cups for 20 minutes otherwise it will damaged while pouring the mixture.

Dahi Katla (Fish preparation with yogurt)

Dahi katla (Fish preparation with yogurt)

This recipe is a traditional Bengali fish preparation. ‘Dahi’ means yogurt and ‘Katla’ is a fish. Fish used is the common freshwater fish. Choose a big fish weighing about 5 kg. Often the fishermen or women who sell these fishes do not expect you to buy the whole fish; therefore you can buy one kilo or 2 kg. For this preparation, you need to select portions from the stomach of the fish. I tried many kinds of Fish preparation, but this recipe is an excellent dish for my family as well as me. You can try this recipe with any white fish.

We all know fish is fully packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Another great thing is it’s a great source of calcium, phosphorus, and minerals. Being fully loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and B2 it can help you to increase your brain power as well.

Yogurt is also an excellent source of essential carbohydrates and a punch of protein. The protein needs for building muscles and also improves their natural functioning.Studies have shown that yogurt is also an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin B5, zinc, potassium, protein, and molybdenum.
