How to make stuffed Mango Kulfi – easy recipe with step-by-step photos

This recipe is an adaption of Mango Kulfi by Chef Kunal Kapoor. Kulfi is perhaps India’s most famous cold-dessert / ice-cream. Made famous in Mumbai where it is served as a quick snack on the famous beaches of Mumbai such as Juhu. There are literally hundreds of varieties of Kulfis that are available. So for beginners who are interested in making desserts, this Mango Kulfi recipe is a perfect dish to get started with. It champions the king of fruits, the Mango with India’s favorite ice-cream format, the Kulfi. Kulfi is so under-rated in India that it is perhaps very native to India (and the Indian subcontinent).

This Mango Kulfi is technically not a Kulfi since we aren’t making the full Kulfi but instead filling up delicious Mangoes with a Kulfi base so that you get to enjoy the sweetness of the Mango along with a frozen filling of Milk and nuts. We are die-hard Mango lovers and converting those luscious mangoes into a Kulfi format is something that we loved doing, and eating! Summer is also the time when kids get time off and have vacations so this is a great dessert that is on the healthier side and kids will definitely love the format.

Mango Kulfi is a easy to make and a kid-favorite!

This recipe needs only 5 ingredients (4 if you want to skip the almonds) – Mangoes, Milk, Sugar, Cashews and Almonds. Unlike regular Kulfi we aren’t adding any Khoya – this is a simple frozen dessert with just Milk and nuts. We remember, as kids, we used to have fun freezing things like water, coffee or anything liquid to turn it into an ‘ice-cream’ the next day :-). Making this Mango Kulfi brought back those memories only this time our kids were involved in the making process.

The Mango season in India coincides with the summer season – arrives in April and lasts until the end of June / early July – sometimes going up to late August in some regions. The markets are flooded with Mangoes of all shapes and sizes. The Mango we’ve used here is a locally available (in Karnataka) variety of Sendhura. This one’s smaller than the Alphonso or the Banganpalli varieties but they are very sweet. If we had to re-do this again, we’ll probably choose the Andhra variety of Banganpally because it is much bigger and is much pulpier. You can also go with Alphonso mangoes where the pulp is sweet and firm. You can order Mangoes from Amazon (India).

Choose ripe mangoes and preferably bigger ones such as Banganpalli or Alphonso.

Because this recipe requires you to scoop out the pulp and fill in the Kulfi base it requires a bigger Mango area. Not that you can’t do it with a smaller mango but it is much more sensible to use a bigger Mango. Choose Mangoes that are ripe – any unripe ones will taste bad after you freeze, and eat them. So if you have to wait out for Mangoes to ripen a bit, please do so before making this recipe. On the other hand, don’t choose over-ripe ones because they will make it difficult to work with the pulp and also once they are frozen the texture changes and gets messier.

Now with those in mind, we’d like you to give it try today, before the Mango season ends. Let us know how it turned out.
