Pistachio Kulfi / IceCream( Eggfree)



Here's a new recipe again and this time something we all love to have,specially during summer time...Ice Cream/Kulfi! yes it's Pistachio IceCream/Kulfi  😊

This time of the year I start making variety of Icecreams and so I already made my all time favorite Coffee Icecream and it got over in just 2 days!
Now again I made this Pistachio IceCream/Kulfi and may be ina day or two I will make Mango IceCream.
Recipes of the two icreams are already shared by me.Please check them.
I made this Pista Icecream/Kulfi and it turned out so soft,no-crystal forming and yummy!



Pistachio Pista Kulfi Icecream eggfree no-churn



I am naming it Kulfi cum IceCream as I really don't think I need to make something different to separate this recipes. It's a 2-in-1 combo!
The kulfi and IceCream would be differentiated by just addition of Cardamom Powder. In kulfi we use Cardamom and for IceCream's we don't.
So if you like Cardamom add it or skip it.
Another interesting ingredient here is fresh and crunchy Pistachios to be used. I used very crisp,fresh and roasted pistachios,shelled and hulled. I am not much sure if the pistachios are not fresh then how would the taste vary. 
Even when you eat the fresh pistachios and slightly couple of week's old one's then there is difference in flavor you can feel.
Using Pistachio Essence/Extract really enhances the taste and brings out flavors in the icecream. If you don't find this then still no worries,You can add vanilla essence or just skip the essence part but then add the cardamom powder.

Here I had put half quantity in Kulfi Molds and remaining in a icecream container just to see how well both the versions of the same recipe work. 
Kulfi was sliding smoothly from the mold and IceCeam could be scooped out so easily.
When you serve try to top them with some chopped Pistachios for the additional flavor.

  • Mix well once the pistachio paste is mixed.
  • Switch off the gas/stove.

  • For kulfi,when the kulfi had slightly solidified in about 1 hour or slightly more, then place the popsicle/kulfi stick.

  6. Pistachio is one of favourite flavours too, especially pistachio ice cream. I really like the idea of adding cardamom. Your Pistachio Ice cream, and the pistachio popsicles, look gorgeous!!

  10. Is there anything better than pistachio ice cream? I don't think so! This recipe sounds divine and I will most definitely be adding cardamon for that extra dash of spice. Yum!
