Matka Kulfi recipe- step by step recipe to make mava-badam at home

Happy summer foodies,
Summer is already started and i started celebrating it.I am Sharing my first Recipe of this summer. I made this kulfi two days before and i thought it is the time to share with you all.
When it comes to MAVA MATKA KULFI i can totally refuse to eat any other varieties .. I can skip B&R ice-creams as well.I don’t know what drives me crazy while eating these temptation.
When i am in hometown,I used to eat these kulfi from kulfiwalas but here in pune I am not pleased with classic kulfiwalas though i can easily get “bombay Kulfi” and even mava kulfi from shops.But I would Say ” Kulfi From that classic Matka – baat hi kuch aur hai “.

Kulfi walas Stores their kulfi in Matka (old classic Clay cooler )with some ice. They gave shapes to the kulfi by freezing them in aluminum molds.It is also said that origin of these kulfi recipe is Mughal empire. Now a days, You can easily get these molds but We can not store Kulfis in Large size matka at home.

Now a days, things are changed.Kulfi is served in “Clay cups” at some places .I some-how manages to get these lovely clay cups and revised the version of  matka kulfi at home. You can get these cups from the plant suppliers Or the vendors who sell Clay Items.
It may also interest you to know that , I have use only THREE Main Ingredients in this recipe i.e Full cream Milk, Mava(Khoya) and sugar.even though I didn’t use any ready-made mix for this recipe ,It come out great for us.
I have shared my mago icecream recipe before in which i didn’t use any mix.
As I told you before-The key to make ice-cream perfect from the milk is to boil them very well.
