Aam Panna Kulfi is sweet-tangy-spicy and is thus very refreshing. Perfect to beat the heat. Make it with sugar or sugar-free. It is made from aam Panna only but how to keep it creamy and crystal free?
Last Sunday, after dinner, when I and my husband went for a ride, then felt like visiting our favourite Kulfi joint. And I freaked out there. Believe it or not, I had 5 kulfis, one after the other. Thereafter, though could have more but still didn't have as finally I felt embarrassed thinking what will the vendor say. Yes, I love these so much that I can go on and on. Though four were mango kulfi only, but the first one which caught my attention there was Aam Panna Kulfi. It was amazing, sweet n tangy and a little spicy too.
It was clear that it was just frozen Aam Panna only. But there weren't any ice crystals and was with a very creamy texture. And then I had to try it out, so with my thinking caps on, I decided to go ahead. And the results were fantastic. The same creamy texture. So, what did I do to make it creamy? Let's see.
Nothing much, I made the Aam Panna, the way I make but kept it thick and pulpy. Normally, we dilute it a lot with water but for kulfi, I didn't. And then, keeping my fingers crossed, placed it in the freezer. I had even thought of churning it again if there were crystals. But it came out perfect!
Though I have made it clear how to make it but still it does call for a written recipe. Isn't it?
