  • 4-5 Disposable Glass/Kulfi Mould
  • 4-6 Tin foil squares.
  • 4-6 Popsicle sticks


  • Take a big vessel/Pan.It should be heavy bottomed.
  • Add milk ,cream ,and let it boil for 5-7 minutes on medium flame .
  • Meanwhile make mango puree if you are using fresh mangoes.
  • Take Mawa powder and mix it with little milk to make it lump free .Add it to the boiling milk .
  • Use whisker for whisking the milk continuously.
  • Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes on medium flame . You can add chopped nuts now.
  • Add condensed milk to it and continously whisk it .
  • After adding condensed milk let it simmer for 5-6 minutes and add corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp of cold water.
  • Whisk it .You will notice that thickening is happening now .
  • At this point (which is around 20-25 minutes of cooking on slow /medium flame )Remove it from the gas .

  • Add green cardamom powder to it .Mix it well.
  • Let it come to room temperature .
  • Take out your disposable glass or kulfi moulds on the counter.
  • Pour equal quantity of mango malai milk into each of the glasses.
  • Cover each with tin foil .It should be tight .
  • Insert one popsicle Stick into each one .
  • Place it in the freezer for making the kulfi.
  • It will take around 8 hours or overnight.
  • Notes-Quantity of kulfi depends on the size of your glasses. I have used big tall glasses ,since I ran out of small ones.
  • After 8 hours or overnight remove it from the freezer.
  • Removing from the mould is tricky but not difficult.
  • If you have used paper glass then just tear them.If you have any other type of glass the pouring of water or keeping it on the counter for a few minutes help in the long run.
  • Serve it after cutting ,or eat just by using popsicle stick.
  • I am sure you will love it .
