Many thanks to my friend Reem, for introducing this wonderfully easy-to-do recipe and sharing her little tips n tricks on getting it right! 🙂
image
Method:
Prepping the Oranges…
You will need 4 large juicy oranges for this recipe. Wash oranges and pat dry.
Cut each orange lengthwise. That way they sit more easily.
image
As an example, I’ve shown you the 2 ways you can cut the orange…the left one is cut right for this recipe (length-wise). The right one is cut wrong (horizontally).
image
Next gently loosen edges of the orange pulp using a pointed knife.
image
Then using a spoon, scoop out the pulp from the shell. Be careful not to tear the outer shell(here you see me working on the horizontal one, I cut the first orange wrong, but used it any way). Save the pulp for later.
image
Clean the insides of the shell, pulling out any peels or debri.
Place shells on a tray. I’ve used a muffin pan, which worked great in keeping them stable and standing straight. Those who don’t own one can also rest them on little steel katoris and the place them on a flat tray.
image
Making the Kulfi base…
Measure out 170 ml evaporated milk and 170 ml Cream
image
And about 1/3 can condensed milk. (I used about a tbsp more)
image
1 1/2 slice of bread, crust removed and cut into squares.
image
You will also need about 2/3 cup orange pulp.
image
To extract pulp, remove outer white skin from the orange pulp.
image
Cut out inner wedges (without peel) using a sharp pointed knife. This might take some time, but the final result will be so worth it!
image
Reserve some pretty wedges for topping the shells if you like.
image
Now transfer the evaporated milk, cream, condensed milk,
image
cut bread,
image
and 1/3 of the orange pulp in a mixi.
image
Blend the above ingredients in the mixi for 2-3 minutes.
image
The mixture will become slightly thick n bubbly.
image
Pour this Kulfi mix into the shells till they are half-way full.
image
Spoon a tsp of orange pulp into each shell.
image
Top up with more Kulfi mix, till they are filled to the brim.
image
Gently place the pretty orange wedges on top.
image
Carefully place the tray in the freezer to chill for 1/2 an hour. Do not cover tray with plastic wrap at this point. As the mix is still loose and will stick to the plastic wrap.
image
After 1/2 an hour, the mix starts to set from the top. Take out of freezer. Cover with double layer of plastic wrap and then freeze the shells overnight till really firm.
image
To ascertain whether orange shells are ready to cut, poke the center with a knife. If it’s still soft, freeze for some more time.
image
Once the shells are frozen hard. Remove them from the freezer 5-6 minutes before you want to serve them. Wait for them to thaw just a little. Then using a serrated knife cut each shell into 4 wedges using a back n forth sawing action.
image
Sprinkle with julienned orange zest if you like and serve immediately!
image
Watch your guests exclaim in delight, as they sink their teeth in the creamy refreshing treat….Mmmmmm! 🙂

PS: For those who do not have easy access to evaporated milk.
HOW TO MAKE EVAPORATED MILK
Evaporated milk is nothing but regular milk that has been reduced to 40%. You may make it at home by taking 2 1/4 c milk, and reduce it to 1 c. Or for this recipe, take about 390 ml milk, and reduce it to 170 ml. But be very careful to stir it constantly, so it doesn’t stick or burn.

      If you don’t have evaporated milk, you can also use normal milk. Evaporated milk is nothing but regular milk that has been reduced to 40%. You may make it at home by taking 2 1/4 c milk, and reduce it to 1 c. Or for this recipe, take about 390 ml milk, and reduce it to 170 ml.
