Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


You will need 18 x 70 ml popsicle moulds. Start this recipe a day ahead.

Freezing time overnight

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender to a coarse purée.

Spoon the mango mixture into 18 x 70 ml popsicle moulds and freeze overnight or until frozen.

Remove the kulfi from the freezer, hold the moulds in a tea towel soaked in warm water, then carefully remove moulds. Serve the mango kulfi immediately with fruit or jelly, if desired.
