Matka kulfi is an Indian dessert traditionally served in earth pots. Kulfi is an Indian ice cream which is made with whole milk and nuts, flavored with cardamoms. There are many types of kulfi. I have already shared malai kulfi recipe here. Today I'm going to share traditional matka kulfi recipe. Which tastes so delicious in this summer. I request you to try this recipe atleast once. I'm sure Your family will definitely like it. You need some small earthen pots to set kulfi, which are easily available In market. If you don't have matka (clay pot) at your home you can set them in any kulfi moulds or popsicle moulds.

I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.

Ingredients :

Full fat milk : 1 1/2 liters
Sugar : 1/3 cup or as per your taste
Cardamom powder : 1 tea spoon
Thinly sliced nuts : 1/4 cup (I used almonds,cashew nuts and pistachios)

Method :

First take milk in pan and put on heat.

Start stirring constantly for 10 to 15 minutes.

Now add sliced nuts, reserve some for garnishing.

Now stir continuously until milk reduces to half, then add sugar (you can adjust sugar as per your taste)

Stir continuously until milk reduces to 1/3 quantity.

Now remove from fire and let it cool completely.

Now pour them into earthen pots and cover with aluminum foil or cling wrap.

Freeze it for over night and serve.

Note :

Servings for this recipe depends upon the size of matka. My matka size is 300 ml each. You can choose small size clay pots for more servings.
