My maternal grandmother, who lived in San Francisco for about 20 years, developed many convenient “tricks and shortcuts,” as she would call them, to help with her cooking. This kulfi recipe makes use of one of those shortcuts – the use of evaporated and sweetened condensed milk. This recipe requires no cooking and gives you such a near perfect rendering of an authentic kulfi that it’s what I now use in my everyday repertoire.
