MANGO KALAKAND / MANGO CHEESE FUDGE BITES

I hope you all are having a fun time cooking and eating! I am having the time of my life experimenting, recreating recipes, and of course, eating all of it.

My Parents sent me mangoes from our farmhouse. At my native place, our farmhouse has more than 100 mango trees.Every variety is different and unique.
one of the trees is approx 100 years old.
here’s the picture …

img_0855

So I decided to use mangoes for the dessert. I had milkmaid kept in the fridge and so my most immediate thoughts drifted to making kalakand.
I do believe the dish looks good if you present it in a creative manner and none is better than a short glass plating

This mango kalakand is very delicious and appetizing. It is made from fresh mango pulp, condensed milk, and homemade paneer. It is a perfect homemade sweet. Do try this mango kalakand before this season comes to an end.

PicsArt_06-21-08.54.19.jpg

Honestly, I had great fun styling kalakand and mangoes just give a tangy sweet flavor .loved the dessert.
Step- by -Step recipe with pictures to make Mango Kalakand / Mango Cheese Fudge Bites

NO BAKE EGGLESS MANGO CHEESECAKE SHOTS

अभी न जाओ छोड़कर की दिल अभी भरा नही …………..
Before mango seasons end try some mango cheesecake shots. Creamy no bake mango cheesecake trifles, freshly whipped cream and topped with fresh mangoes, what’s not to love? The perfect no-bake summer dessert.

1529336153595

This mango cheesecake has a nice dominant flavor of mangoes. For making this eggless mango cheesecake, I have not used cream cheese. I have used paneer instead. I have made homemade paneer for this recipe.

The concept is simple: graham cracker crust, no-bake cheesecake filling, and a topping.
Really This is the best recipe when you don’t want to use cream cheese. Paneer does its job perfectly.

Shot glass dessert is my favorite…You can call it my signature dish.
Every time I make new shot glass dessert for any family get together or party.

This time I have made individual mini cheesecake in a shot glass. Desserts in a mug, cup or glass are the best way to ensure you’re only eating one serving.
This recipe has no egg, no gelatin, and no agar-agar.

NO COOK MANGO MALAI KULFI

This is an easy, Instant Indian style no cook mango kulfi recipe using ripe mango, milk, milkmaid (condensed milk) and cream.

When my fellow blogger friends posted this no-cook mango kulfi recipe, I got tempted to try it at home.
I surfed the net and found perfect to try the recipe at Chitrasfoodbook .

I didn’t have amul cream so I used homemade malai and the result was superb . Melting in the mouth kulfi,with no added sugar- only natural mango sweetness. My hubby gives 10 on 10 for this.

1527739336389

Friends, try this easy mango kulfi for your kids. As this is a no-cook recipe, kids would be interested to prepare it by themselves.A nice way to busy your kids to make such a delicious no-cook recipe.

They will love its creamy texture and lovely color for sure. Let this be a healthy summer treat with mangoes for them.

Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 6 Minutes
Serves:4

INGREDIENTS :

Ripe mango – 1 no ( 3/4 cup chopped)
Sweetened condensed milk – 1/4 cup +1 tbsp (I used Milkmaid)
Fresh cream – 1/4 cup ( I used homemade  malai here )
Boiled milk – 1/3 cup ( at room temperature)
Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp
Saffron threads – Few

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Wash and peel the skin of the ripe mango. Chop into cubes.1527738981067
  2. Take chopped mango, condensed milk, milk, thick fresh malai, cardamom, and saffron.1527739082432
  3. Grind to a smooth paste without adding more milk or water. Grind in a low speed till everything becomes a paste. Kulfi mixture is ready
  4. Fill in kulfi mold and cover with butter paper.
  5. *Make sure the butter paper touches the kulfi mixture. This helps to avoid ice crystals formation. Insert a popsicle stick and freeze for 6 to 8 hours. Overnight is the best.
  6. sprinkle some pista and Kaju ..1527739227368
  7. Freeze for 6 to 8 hours. Remove and serve immediately. Enjoy!

NOTES :

  • You can use Amul mithai mate or homemade condensed milk in this recipe.
  • Do not use hot milk while grinding, mixture may curdle.
  • I have not added sugar as the mangoes were sweet and sweetness from condensed milk was just enough. If you want you can add sugar as per the taste of your mangoes.
  • Add fresh cream finally then just use whip option for mixing. Do not blend more as it may churn into butter especially if you are using homemade fresh cream.
  • The butter paper trick was really amazing.
