Kulfi Falooda - Dessert


So the idea for this recipe came because of my grand mom and you what to know why ? She loves Kulfi Falooda, we often go out on saturday nights for a drive and that is when she likes to enjoy having a bowl of this from a restaurant in the area. She likes it with some good amount of glass noodles, rose sherbet and malai kulfi.
I had gone to the market and had seen some molds in which I decided to make some kulfi for her at home but did not fine anything interesting and that is when Tupperware came to the rescue and I ordered my self the below Mickey Cups. They look cute and are perfect for my uncles 7 year old son as well. I was sure that he would like them and so will my grand mom. 





To discuss the recipe, I sat with my mom and asked her as to if she will help me with this and how can we go about with it as she was the expert for such things in the house (Im only good at making a few selected dishes, but she is the masterchef of the house). She helped me arrange the ingredients needed for the recipe and also sat with me while I was making it and clicking pictures for this blog (and it was necessary to blog about it, its my moms recipe).


So the ingredients were as below.

Heavy Cream - 1 Cup
Sugar - 100 gms
Rabdi (Reduced Milk) - 200 ml
Cardamom Powder - 3 gms
Saffron - Few Strands
Chopped Pistachio - 50 gms
Chopped Almonds - 50 gms
Rose Sherbet - 40 ml
Glass Noodles (Boiled) - 80 gms - 100 gms.






Once we have all the ingredients in place, lets start making this as it needs to cool down a bit and then go in the freezer to set as well so the more delay you make at your end, the longer you will have to wait for the end product. 

Lets start making it.

 
 
Step 1 - Heat the cream in a sauce pan for a couple of mins and then add in the sugar. 
Bring the cream to a boil and remember to keep stirring so that the sugar dissolves.

 
Step 2 - Once the cream comes to a boil, add in the rabdi i.e. reduced milk and stir so.



Step 3 - Put in the cardamom powder and the saffron and mix well so that the flavor get into every drop of the cream mixture and the saffron also releases the aromas and the color giving it that perfect golden color.


 
Step 4 - Time to add in the goodness i.e. the chopped nuts, once they go in, its again a time to stir and bring it to a small boil and put out the flame/induction. You base for the Kulfi is ready. 


 
Step 5 - Let the mixture cool down a bit and then remove some of it in another bowl and we will mix in some coloring and give it another flavor. Add in a the rose sherbet and mix well and it should look like how it is in the image below.








Its time to assemble the product in the Tupperware Mickey Ice Cups.







 


 






- We start with filling in the red sherbet kulfi base, fill 1/3rd of the mold with it, then comes the boiled glass noodles and lastly it is the plain kulfi base. Once the mold is full, time to cover it and put it in the freezer.

Once in the freezer, do not disturb it for a few hours. It took me about 5 hours to get the perfectly set Kulfi Falooda.

Traditionally if you go in the market it is served with lots of nuts, glass noodles on the top and some rose sherbet and to give it that feel, the garnish was just the same.




Tip: If you feel that the stick is not coming out, just rub the mold with your hands a couple of times and it will come out it ease.
You can also try to make different flavors if you want, just add the flavoring once the mixture is off the flame and stir it.
Sweetness can be adjusted as per your choice, I had kept the sugar a bit less as everyone in my house prefers a bit less sweet but they do love sweet.

Not to forget, you can order the Mickey Ice Cups from the Tupperware site and they will be delivered to you. Also you can check out more on the Tupperware youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/TupperwareIndiaOfficial

  1. This is one of the most famous desert in our country and I myself love to eat it as well. It reminds of a shop named "Kasuri Falooda" where we used to go every other night to have it.
