An interesting no-cook, traditional homemade Ice Cream recipe that is quick and easy to prepare without compromising on the taste and texture.

Very delicious on its own, but also served as an elaborate dessert called the Falooda.



Recipe Card 



Evaporated milk

350 ml

Condensed milk

395 ml

Whipping/double/heavy cream

1 ¾ cups

Bread slices, corners removed


Cardamom, freshly crushed

1 tsp


A few strands


To sprinkle


Method of Preparation: 

  • Whip the cream to semi-soft stage. You can skip this step but I find this gives a lighter texture to your kulfi.
  • Blend slices with cardamom and half evaporated milk in your blender.
  • Mix this mixture with condensed milk and the rest of the evaporated milk.
  • Add saffron.
  • Mix it in with whipped cream either by hand beater or whisk. Make sure the mixture is homogeneous and well mixed.
  • Freeze it in an airtight container. I like to put the box in a plastic bag for additional protection from freezer air.
  • Take it out after 2 hours when it's semi-frozen. Beat it with a beater. This will make sure that the mixture is well blended and doesn't settle down in the bottom and also there are no crystals. You can repeat this process once more if you have enough time.
  • Freeze until completely frozen.
  • Serve as it is or part of your falooda.


  • Most evaporated milk comes in 12 ounces or 350 ml can while condensed milk comes 14 ounces or 395 ml cans.
  • You can adjust the sweetness of the mixture by increasing or decreasing the amount of cream by plus-minus 1/4 cup.
  • If you use the first three ingredients chilled, it helps in improving the texture.
