My daughter wanted me to post low-fat, healthy kulfi, which they can all eat guilt-free and her request paved way for this excellent, tasty Mango Kulfi!!
This Kulfi has 3% milk (all the abroad-residents can use 2% milk ....still more guilt-free!!), organic cane sugar which has several health benefits, and also home-made Khoya to give the kulfi a grainy texture. Earlier, in the Kesar dryfruit Kulfi , I had used 41/2 % milk and also Fresh cream, plus white sugar, so, in comparison, this Mango Kulfi is really a healthy and low-fat dessert, especially during hot summer days. .

3% milk - 5 cups
 Organic cane sugar - 1/2 cup
Mango puree made from 4 Alphonso mangoes
2 more mangoes, chopped into tiny pieces
Saffron strands, soaked in 2 tsp milk
Khoya made from 3 cups milk
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Dessert
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 1 - 11/2 hours

Yields 8 Kulfis

Milk set to boil and condense, the saffron strands, and cardamom powder also added

Khoya, home-made, fresh and so soft. How to make Khoya? Refer here

Sugar measured and kept ready

Mango puree made from 4 alphonso mangoes

Cane sugar added.

Now goes in the khoya

Mixed well and allowed to cool down

Hand blended a couple of times to break the thick creamy  formations in the  mixture

After the milk mixture cools down fully, mango puree added and whisked nicely.

Kulfi cones filled, and neatly arranged, before being shoved into the freezer. If you don't have Kulfi cones, do not worry..fill half of the paper cups, cover with an aluminium foil, then insert an ice cream stick in the center. Or  can serve in matkas, the small earthen pots too.

To remove the kulfi from  the cones, show under running water from  faucet, then with a butter knife,  loosen the sides of the kulfi and gently drop into the bowl or plate in which you want to serve. Lo!!! here is the heavenly Mango Kulfi, served on a bed of Alphonso mangoes, chopped into tiny pieces, and garnished with thinly chopped pistachio pieces.
