Who don't like kulfi or ice creams, but if it's made of oats then? Wow.... Yes , it's absolute taste with health. I always tried to skip Ice creams and kulfis due to creams added in it but now no issues. An idea strikes me few days back that if I can use oats in my pasta to make it creamy and saucy then why not give it a try in some sweet treat. Suddenly my kid demanded ice cream , so thought to try this in kulfi first and the result was awesome. My fussy eater too loved it , what else is needed. Happy kids, satisfied mom, that's all😊😊. It's very easy, minimum cooking kulfi with seasonal fruit, mango. Recipe is given below, hope it comes up to your expectations.
OATS MANGO KULFI WITHOUT CREAM
Yield: 1- 1 1/4 lt
Time: 20 mins ( freezing time excluded)
3/4 cup oats
2 1/2 cup milk
2 1/2- 3 cup mango puree ( pulp of four medium sized ripe mangoes)
1 tin condensed milk ( 395gms)
Chopped dry fruits ( optional)
1 tsp mango essence ( optional)
First of all soak oats in milk for 20-30 mins. Then cook it till nicely done. Let it cool then in a grinder make its smooth and creamy puree. Use more milk if needed, as the puree should be thick creamy but of pouring consistency.
Now add mango puree , condensed milk, dry fruits( I skipped) and essence to it. Mix well and fill in kulfi molds .
Freeze for at least 7-8 hrs or overnight. Your yummy kulfi is ready to serve.
If your mangoes are not so sweet then add some sugar as per your taste. Adding dry fruits is optional, but I will recommend you to add as it will hide that little taste of oats in kulfi.
If you don't want to add mango in your kulfi then substitute it with equal amount of thickened milk of same consistency and lots of dry fruits.
Use kulfi mold is also recommended, as freezing in big bowl may lead to formation of ice crystals in it. Then you should churn it again after half frozen to avoid ice crystals .
I used M&M 's tubes to make kulfi as don't have kulfi molds, so you can also use your jugaad.😊
Your simple, easy and healthy kulfi is ready for health conscious kulfi lovers and fussy eaters too.
