So how can you have kulfi without dairy? -Well, according to Wikipedia, what really sets kulfi apart from regular icecream is that it is not whipped and therefore very dense and rich. This cashew-based dessert is not whipped either, so we think it can be classed as kulfi. The recipe is very simple, but you do need a food processor/ blender/ grinder for grinding and pureeing. This makes about 700g of kulfi, enough for about 5 people.
200g cashew pieces (unsalted)
500g diced fresh ripe mango flesh
- Grind the cashews to a fine powder; as fine as possible so as to achieve a smooth end result.
- Add the diced mango and blend to a puree.
- Put into a tub or bowl and freeze.
