Mango Kulfi is a delightful Indian ice cream. Although it does not have a custard base it does have a soft, creamy texture. You don’t even need an electric ice cream gizmo to make it! Kulfi is usually molded into individual portions and garnished with lots of ground roasted pistachio nuts.
Place water in a small saucepan; sprinkle with gelatin. Allow to soften for five minutes; cook over low heat until dissolved. Peel and pit mangoes. Puree flesh in a blender or food processor. You should have 3-1/2 cups puree. Place mango in a large bowl; add sugar, lemon juice and dissolved gelatin. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Fold whipped cream into mango mixture. Place bowl in freezer until mixture is half frozen; about one hour. Remove from freezer; beat until smooth. Pack into individual bowls or molds; return to freezer and freeze until about half frozen but still creamy. Garnish with plenty or ground roasted pistachio nuts. Makes 6 1 cup molds
