Kesar Pista Kulfi ( Saffron Pistachio Popsicles)

This is a wonderful treat during summer time. Any sweet dessert with a touch of cardamom and saffron gives a wonderful taste and aroma. It has chopped pistachios which give a light green color along with a crunch to the dessert. Its a must try recipe during this hot summer...


Ingredients required..

1 liter Milk
1/2 cup Sugar, can add more or less to your taste
2 pinches of Saffron
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
1/4 cup Pistachio, finely chopped
2 slices of white bread, crust removed and roughly chopped
1 tbsp Cornflour
1/4 cup of milk

Directions..

In a large pan, on a medium flame boil milk with constant stirring till it reduces to nearly half of its volume or use Evaporated milk instead.

Meanwhile, blend bread, cornflour and 1/4 cup of milk together till you get a nice paste. Keep aside.

When the milk has reduced, add sugar, saffron, cardamom powder and blended paste and bring it to a boil. Test to see if the sugar is right and adjust accordingly.

Turn of the heat and let the milk cool to room temperature.

Then fill your Popsicles with the milk and freeze overnight or nearly 8 hours. If you do not have Popsicles, you can fill the liquid in small cups and when it has half frozen, insert the kulfi sticks and freeze again.


Enjoy the lovely treat!
