Thandai Kulfi

I love to make Kulfi and trying with different flavors too. I made this one last year during Holi time for one of our friend's get together and since then its become my favorite. This time at Holi it was not that warm kulfi weather so I made it later on. But its so easy and delicious you can have it any time.

Let's first make thandai masala

10 to 12 peppercorns
10 Almonds
10 Cloves
2 tbsp. poppy seeds (khaskhas)
2 tbsp. Fennel seeds(sauf)
1/2 tsp. cardamom powder
small pinch of saffron.

Mix everything and make a fine powder in grinder / mixture. keep it aside. If you like you can add saffron in powder also but I like to keep it whole so I did not add it in .

1 cup Whole milk
1 cup Half and half milk
1 cup Heavy cream
sugar as per taste ( I add 4 tbsp.)
3 tbsp. thandai masala
6 plastic or foam cups

Mix all milk together.
Add sugar and saffron in it.
Take thandai masala and sift thru very fine sieve. You can adjust masala quantity as per your taste.
I like it sweet and spicy so I add 3 tbsp in it.
Mix it till sugar dissolves completely. Yes you don't need to stand in front of stove to cook it. I learned it hard way to get this creamy kulfi.
Then pour it in glasses and cover with aluminium foil and put it in freezer.
If you have sticks for kulfi you can add it after its semifrozen.

Freeze it atleast for 6-8 hours and then enjoy this creamy sweet and spicy Thandai Kulfi.
At the time of serving, take it out from freezer and leave it out for 5 minutes then unmold it.
