Question about Ice Cream Makers
I have the Kenwood IM280 and I followed the instructions on the manual from freezing it 24 hours before and chilling the mixture for up to 6 hours, the second time I chilled it overnight. But the mixture never hardens all the times that I've tried it (3 times so far), not once has to come close to becoming an ice cream.

The machine must be upright for 24 hours before using it.
If it was stored on its side or upside down you MUST wait 24 hours with the machine in the correct upright position. The 'person' who delivered mine made sure he tumbled it over and over again scanning shipping labels even though it said everywhere fragile and this side up.
If the machine does not work at cooling after 24 hours there is a problem and it should be returned.
Do not expect rock hard ice cream, but thick scoop-able medium firm soft-serve is easy to get as a result. A few hours in the freezer will harden it more.

- Prep time: 5 min
- Cook time: 90 min
- Serves: 5
- full fat milk
- Full fat milk - 1.25 lts
- Powdered Sugar - 1/3 cup heaped
- Cardamom - 4, powdered
- Pistachios - 8, roughly chopped (optional)
- Saffron - few strands, soaked in a tbsp of warm milk for 10 mtsMethod
- Heat milk in a wide bottomed pan and bring to a boil. Allow the milk simmer on medium flame till it reaches half its original quantity. Keep stirring inbetween.
- Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder and roughly chopped nuts. Mix well and keep simmering on medium flame, stirring till it further reduces to almost one third of its original quantity. It will have a rabdi consistency and slightly thick.
- Turn off flame and allow to cool.
- Once cool, place the mixture in the fridge for a few hours. (This helps reduce formation of ice crystals during freezing process)
- Pour the chilled mixture into kulfi moulds and close the lids.
- Place the kulfi moulds in the deep freezer and allow to set overnight or at least 7-8 hours.
- Once the kulfi sets, place the kulfi mould in luke warm water for a few secs to help it unmould easily.
- Insert kebab or ice cream stick in the kulfi and serve. You can garnish with more nuts.Tips
- Full fat milk is essential for authentic flavour of kulfi.
- If you do not have kulfi moulds, you can use stainless steel vessels.
- Kulfi expands on freezing, so do not fill to the brim.
- You can skip step four and pour the milk mixture that is at room temperature into the kulfi moulds.
