In many parts of India, just as in most parts of Australia, Christmas is often a beautifully sunny and warm day. Kulfiis a traditional Indian ice cream, and this kulfirecipe is just right after a rich meal in any climate. You can serve it flamed with brandy for a special festive touch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
315g sweetened condensed milk
375ml evaporated milk
375ml thick cream
3 tablespoons ground almonds
125g dried fruit and nut mix, (see note)
1 teaspoon mixed spice, using equal parts ground cardamom, ground cloves and ground mace
60ml brandy
fresh berries and cherries, to serve

Method

  1. Mix together the cocoa and 2 tablespoons of warm water in a large bowl until the cocoa has dissolved. Add the condensed and evaporated milks, cream, ground almonds, dried fruit and nut mix, mixed spice and brandy, and mix together until well combined.
  2. Pour the mixture into a freezer-proof 1.5 litre mould or terrine or into six 250 ml ramekin or dariole moulds. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 8 hours.
  3. About 5 minutes before serving, transfer the kulfito the refrigerator. When ready to serve, turn the kulfiout of the large mould or terrine onto a platter and cut into slices, or invert the individual ramekins onto plates. (If you are having difficulty getting the kulfiout, you can roll the individual ramekins between your hands to provide a little warmth and help remove the kulfifrom the ramekins. However, do not run hot water over them as this will make the surface of the ice cream melt.)
  4. Scatter the berries and cherries around the kulfi and serve immediately.

Note

  • You could buy a ready-made dried fruit and nut mix, or you could make your own, choosing your preferred combination from dried figs, cranberries, apricots, currants, sultanas and raisins, and nuts such as almonds, pistachio nuts, walnuts and hazelnuts.
