Ask your average South Asian what their favorite frozen dessert is, and the answer invariably comes back as kulfi. Kulfi is a dessert thats been made in India for hundreds of years, and comes in a variety of flavors from cardamom to pistachio to mango. I have wonderful memories of my grandma bringing fresh batches out of the freezer for all us grandchildren to enjoy, and its been a favorite of mine ever since. Traditionally, its made by boiling down milk until it gets very thick, and then adding whatever type of flavoring you’d like. For my version, I chose an old American classic (chocolate), and mixed it with a traditional essence of the East, kewra. Along with the frozen banana as a base, its one flavorful dessert.
* 3-4 bananas
* 2 heaping tbsp cacao powder
* 3 tbsp agave nectar or to taste
* 3 tbsp kewra water or 1.5 tablespoons rose water
* 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
* 2 tsbp cold-pressed coconut oil
* 1 cup pistachios or other nuts
In a bowl, mix the cacao powder, agave nectar, coconut oil, kewra water, and vanilla extract. If the mixture is very thick, add 1 tsp water. With mortar/pestle or spice mill, grind pistachios until they are in small pieces. Coat the bananas with the chocolate mixture and then roll in the pistachios. Put coated/rolled bananas on a plate lined with wax paper, and cover with another layer of wax paper. Place in freezer overnight. Done! Woohoo!
