MANGO OATS KULFI

Pour the milk in a thick bottomed vessel. Add oats + nuts powder to it . Mix well . Keep the flame on medium heat.
After 2-3 minutes add jaggery and honey and mix well .
When the mixture starts to thicken , add mango pulp ,chopped nuts and saffron . Mix everything well . Switch Off and allow to cool .
Pour it into “Kulfi Moulds” and freeze .
That's it after 4-6 hours ,unmould mango oats kulfi from the moulds and relish them guilt free. Isn't that cool ... ??
- Instead of plain oats you can use any flavored oats that are available these days .
- Adding mango puree is optional . instead you can make plain kesar pista flavor , saffron flavor or any other fruit flavor .
- If you are not adding mango puree then increse the quantity of jaggery a bit .
- I used quaker oats . you can use any brand that you like
- To unmould the kulfi run th eoutside of the Kulfi mould under tap water for a few seconds and carefully take out
- if you don't have kulfi moulds you can pour it in any air tight box and serve as ice cream .
