My mother-in-law is well known for her mango kulfi, which has three ingredients and flavorings. She usually alternates between cardamom and rose.
A traditional kulfi is made with full fat milk, that is slowly thickened until it is significantly reduced in volume and then sweetened and chilled.
The process of thickening the milk takes some time, and I had been averse to doing this for a while but I finally bit the bullet and boy, let me tell you, this is one of those dishes there is no turning back once you have done the traditional nine yards. I was even thrilled to be able to inaugurate the molds that I bought several years ago.
1/2 gallon whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 ripe mangoes
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1 tablespoon rosewater
Slivered Almonds and Rose Petals to garnish
