  • Take 1/2 cup milk and mix corn flour.
  • Mix it nicely so there is no lumps formed and keep it aside
  • Heat the remaining milk in a pan
  • Allow it to come to boil in low flame and reduce in volume for 20 minutes.
  • Then add corn flour mix to the milk. Milk will tend to thicken fast after we add corn flour.

  • Then add sugar, mix and boil in slow flame till sugar is dissolved.
  • Stir continuously till it is thick and coats the laddle and milk is reduced in volume.

  • Switch off the flame, add the finely chopped nuts, cardamom powder and mix.
  • Then cool it completely and fill the kulfi moulds.
  • I filled my Popsicle moulds and small kulfi moulds
  • Poured the remaining mixture to steel tumbler and wrapped with foil.
  • Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight till it is set completely.
  • Before serving keep the mould in water for few secs to remove the kulfi easily. You can use knife and run through the edges too.
  • Enjoy the yummy musk melon kulfi


Use Whole full cream milk for making kulfi.
You can use normal stainless steel glass if you don't have kulfi mould. In that case cover the top with silver foil
You can remove the kulfi from fridge after two hours and insert icecream stick if you are using stainless steel glass.
Unmould the kulfi in bowl and serve without using icecream sticks too.
I used one full musk melon for this recipe. You can adjust the quantity of musk melon according to your choice.
You can use white sugar instead of brown sugar
Addition of nuts is optional but it give rich taste to kulfi
