Badam Kulfi – A Royal Summer Treat

August 22, 2016
Badam Kulfi- A Royal Summer treat with milk and almonds which is easy to prepare and utterly delicious !!


Kulfis have always been a favourite of mine. We rarely got it where we lived and so whenever I had the chance I always chose kulfi over any other frozen treats.

Kulfis are Indian Ice creams which are more creamy and denser than usual ice cream. They are made in various flavours like cardamom, pista, saffron or with fruit flavours of mango, strawberry and so on. I had tried mango before but this Badam Kulfi beats any other flavour I had ever tried.

This recipe is adapted from Sharmis Passions with some additions I made based on other recipes I came across the blog world. Whatever, the results were amazing and I am gonna make this royal quick yummy dessert more often. Do give it a try this summer and thank me in the comments section 😀



A royal delicious summer treat !

  1. Milk- 2.5 cups (750 ml)
  2. Sugar- Half cup
  3. Almonds- 20 medium sized
  4. Rice flour/Cornflour- 1 teaspoon
  5. Cardamom pods- 5 to 6
  6. Saffron strands- 3 or 4 strands
  7. Condensed Milk- 2tbsp
  1. Soak almonds in hot water for 15 to 30 minutes.
  2. Peel off the skin of almonds and keep aside.
  3. Place milk in a heavy bottomed pan or non stick ware over fire. When it boils, simmer and keep stirring the milk till it reduces to half.
  4. Keep an eye on the milk so that it doesn't burn and stir occasionally while you are doing other preparations for the Kulfi.
  5. Grind almonds, sugar, rice flour, cardamom pods and saffron strands with milk into a nice paste.
  6. When the milk almost reduces to half, add the condensed milk and stir well.
  7. Add the almond paste and keep stirring.
  8. Once the sugar is dissolved and the mixture gets cooked, remove from fire and set aside to cool.
  9. Refrigerate for 10 minutes and blend the mixture to make it more smooth.
  10. Pour into Kulfi or popsicle molds and sprinkle some chopped nuts on the top.
  11. Freeze for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.
  12. When you are to serve the delicious Kulfi, place the mold in water for one or two minutes and gently pull off the stick.
  13. Enjoy the homemade goodness.
  1. Saffron is optional but highly recommended.
  2. Rice flour gives a creamier texture, but cornflour works fine.Some recipes even use crumbled bread for the purpose.
  3. Freezing six hours is mandatory and never try removing before the time.
  4. The mixture might feel too sweet while preparing but it was just right sweet when frozen. Feel free to reduce according to your taste.
  5. My Kulfi molds were smaller and this yielded nine Kulfis for me.

  1. I personally love kulfi and I just believe that the badaam makes it taste even better. Just had a pista kulfi a while ago. YUMM!

  2. Wow, lots of hard work to make kulfi, but it looks like it will turn out great 🙂 I never moved beyond the “freeze Rooh Afza in a lolly mold and call it a homemade treat” phase, so I think I will stick to less adventurous homemade dessert making for now 😉

  3. I have never had this dessert, and certainly didnt think you could make ice cream out of almonds. It looks very tasty though, but I would need to have you send me some to enjoy/’

  4. It sure does look royal… I’v never heard of it or tastasted it before. But will gladly gobble one, like right now!

    Some of ingredients are among my favourites so hope to try it out sometime soon insha Allah.

  5. While in college there was this dessert joint near my hostel. Kulfi from there was my favourite. Never knew it was this easy to make haha. Thank for sharing

  6. Am an altime lover of frozen desserts. Made this recipe the moment I saw dis. Easy and quick recipe. And the result was a wow😋😋. Yummy and dense. Thanx for sharing recipe.😊
