  • Chikoo Sapota 5
  • Full fat milk 1 l
  • Condensed milk 200 ml
  • Sugar 1/4 c
  • Cardamom pods 3 to 4 crushed
  • Chironji 1 tbsp optional
  • Saffron a pinch
  • Corn starch 1.5tbsp
  • Water 2 tbsp


  • Heat a deep pressure cooker with 1 liter full fat milk. I used my 3 l PC.
  • Add a pinch of saffron to it and allow it to boil.
  • When it comes to rolling boil and froths up on the top, reduce the volume of the milk to 1/2.
  • When the milk reduces to 1/2 its volume, add sugar and cardamom and mix well. Let it simmer for 10 mins.
  • Now, add condensed milk and mix well. Simmer for 3 to 4 mins.
  • Once done, switch off flame.
  • Add corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp water to the mixture. Make sure there are no lumps. Use a whisk to mix this with the milk mixture.
  • Mix well. Heat this for 2 mins. You will see that the mixture thickens.
  • Now, switch off flame and let it cool.
  • When the mixture is cool, add chironji to it and mix.
  • Now, scoop out the pulp from the chikoo and place it in a blender.
  • Grind to a smooth puree. Add this to the milk mixture and mix well. I kept the puree a bit chunky because i like it that way.
  • Line a loaf tin with parchment. Pour the mixture into the mould.
  • Place in the deep freezer and allow it to freeze fully. Or pour them into kulfi moulds and freeze them. If using kulfi moulds, remember to place a popsicle stick in the middle.
  • Once done, invert the pan bottom side up, run it under tap water and unmould.
  • Cut into slices and serve.
  • Or run the kulfi moulds in tap water, remove them from the mould and serve immediately.
