No-Cook Indian Ice Cream

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: Need to freeze overnight
Makes: 12 pieces


This recipe was an open secret among our friends in Bahrain. I heard an advertisement on TV the other night that described this dish perfectly: "Sunday taste, Tuesday effort"!

1 (14-ounce / 398-mL) can fat-free
     evaporated milk
1 (14-ounce / 398-mL) can sweetened low-fat
     condensed milk
1 cup / 250 mL low-fat heavy cream
2 teaspoons / 10 mL ground cardamom
Garnish: A few drops of rose water

In a large bowl, stir together well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, cream, and cardamom. Pour into Popsicle molds, Indian stainless steel kulfi molds, or even a small bowl. Freeze overnight. Remove from the molds. Serve sprinkled with rose water.

Variations: The possibilities are endless. Instead of the cardamom, you can add your own favorite flavoring. I love crushed unsalted pistachios. Another favorite is 1/4 cup / 60 mL of mango pulp. My sister loves hers plain topped with crushed almonds. In most Indian grocery stores you will find a delicious rose syrup called Rooh Afsa; top each serving with a teaspoonful.

Tips: Before serving, dip the ice-cream mold in warm water to make it easier to remove the ice cream.
