(#26) PISTACHIO & CARDAMOM KULFI: Indian Ice Cream!

Ice cream is on our minds 24/7.  Literally.  So when we're in social situations, it doesn't take long before ice cream becomes the main topic of discussion.  A few weeks ago I went to a friend's birthday picnic and, after telling them the concept behind "100 Scoopsies," I asked my usual "do you have any suggestions?"  You know when you go your whole life without hearing a word or phrase or some kind of reference, and suddenly it gets brought up three times in a week?  Well, that's kind of what happened with kulfi.  Separately four different people suggested it!  The next day, I was having coffee with some friends and THERE IT WAS AGAIN! "Have you tried kulfi?"  It was a sign.  It had to be made as one of our 100 flavors and we had to make it now!  

Kulfi is made with condensed milk.  You can buy it pre-condensed or condense it yourself by stirring the mixture frequently over medium-low heat for 45 minutes.  It leaves you with the creamiest dessert!  Other popular kulfi flavors are rose, saffron, and mango.

It is typically eaten as a popsicle (I may or may not have already purchased kulfi popsicle moulds from India). 

Oh, and you can count on this flavor being at our upcoming June 30th ice cream social!
