Mango Kulfi

I am crazy about mangoes. My third Mango Recipe – never mind. Mango kulfi is one of the best summer desserts made with mangoes.

Kulfi is an Indian version of  ice cream – nuttier and denser than the regular ice cream. Traditionally it is made with thickened creamy milk, but it is time consuming. Lazy me always looking for an easy substitute. Tried using condensed milk and bingo! Delicious Mango Kulfi is ready.

During my childhood days, I remember hawkers with push carts full of creamy kulfi. After hearing their bell sounds, me and my sis will run to buy kulfi. It is so addictive. You can try variations in it, by adding nuts and any fruit pulp of your choice, or even plain milk mixture with nuts also tastes divine.

This is a very easy and quick kulfi recipe ,no cooking is required.


Mango Kulfi:

Preparation Time : 10 min | Freezing Time : 8 hours | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Dessert


Sweetened Condensed milk – 1/2 cup

Pureed Mango – 1/2 cup

Cardamom powder- 1/8 tsp

Vanilla Extract – 1/8 tsp

Mixed Nuts – 2 tbsp,chopped (I used Pistachio, Walnuts, Almonds)


  • In a bowl, add Pureed Mango and Vanilla extract. Mix well and add Condensed Milk and chopped nuts. Combine everything and fill the mixture in the kulfi moulds (popsicle moulds) or just use any container with a lid.


  • Freeze for about 8 hours.


  • Dip the moulds in hot water to easily unmould the kulfi .

My Notes:

  • The mango I took was sweet, and with condensed milk being added, I didn’t add any sugar. You can add sugar after checking the sweetness
  • Instead of adding condensed milk, you can take 2 cup of whole milk, condense it to 1/2 cup and then use
  • If you do not have a Popsicle mould, you can use disposable plastic cups and skewers

    I would love to try this! Could I do it with a different fruit or would it not be considered kulfi anymore? I truly love learning about all these new foods!
    P.S. I just put up some strawberries for you! 😉
