While we ordered the regular Dal, roti, chicken thing, the dessert menu really caught our eye. There was this Thandai brulee, a beetroot halwa and a bournvita kulfi. When we ordered the kulfi, we were told that it needed to thaw a bit, so well, basically hang on to your horses.
As the husband excused himself for a couple of minutes, the dessert was brought to our table, within a few bites, Mr M and I knew it was a great dessert, and a couple of minutes later polished the whole thing off. And then we looked at each other, should we or should we not order another one? Well, we said, what he doesn't know he hasn't missed, and then promptly ordered another one.
Another kulfi arrived as did the husband. Mr M and I shared knowing looks as we let him help himself to the kulfi. It's really quite nice, he said. And as if on cue, we both attacked it with our spoons.
Ever since then, I've been wanting to recreate it at home. I bought the kulfi moulds, condensed milk and full fat milk. I love Bournvita, so that's always at home. Finally last night, I decided to jump at it.
I tried to recreate it with the flavours I remembered, your welcome to try your own concoction :) But, I must tell you, this was awesome!
|Oh for some malt © Cookaroo|
1 litre full fat milk
200 ml low fat cream
2 tblsps corn flour
100 grams Bournvita, plus more if you like it stronger
1 tblsp Cocoa Powder
2 tblsp Sugar (more if you like it sweeter) or substitute with condensed milk
1. Bring one litre of milk to the boil, let it simmer and reduce to half. Add bournvita, cocoa and sugar to it and let it dissolve well.
2. In a small bowl mix cornflour with half the cream, till it forms a thick paste. Add to the milk mix and add the remaining cream to it. Stir till the mixture thickens.
3. Check for sweetness. Let it cool and scoop into kulfi moulds. Freeze for atleast 8 hours before serving with some melted bournvita bits
Note: The milk reduction will helps keep the crystals in the kulfi/icecream away.
I'm also sending this for the Ice Cream Blog Hop. so here goes :)
