Paan Gulkand Kulfi Recipe

While preparing paan kulfi make sure that you do not add too much of sugar to the thickened milk because the gulkand also contains sugar so adjust sugar accordingly to taste. Once you prepare the meetha paan paste, taste it before adding it to the kulfi mixture. If you feel the flavour of paan is not coming through, just blend together some more betel leaves and gulkand to get a nice paan flavour. You can use dry fruits in this kulfi. For enhancing the flavour you can add a tsp of rose water in meetha paan paste. Make sure that the milk is thicken by the end of it or else you can find crystals after freezing the kulfi. This is the simple trick to make a perfect kulfi without any crystals if you use this trick you don’t need to add bread or any other such thing, just make sure the milk is really thick by the end.
