While some can’t get over the rising temperatures, summer for me means mangoes. You can’t get enough of them and I can think of a 100 different ways to celebrate this season’s fruit. While pickles and mango-based curries are the order of the day, here’s a recipe for a fool-proof Indian cooler to beat the heat: the Mango kesari kulfi. Creamy kulfi combined with the taste of the sweet mangoes and the added crunch of pistachios – what more could you ask for?

* In a small bowl, keep aside 1-2 tbsp of the boiled milk and add the saffron strands to it.

* Now, reduce the larger quantity of milk on a medium flame, stirring it occasionally to prevent burning. The trick to perfect kulfi is stirring milk evenly.

* Add the soaked saffron to the reducing milk, stiring all the while and reduce to half. Add the sugar and cream, and cook it for another 1-2 minutes.

* After reducing the milk, let it cool down completely.

* After it cools down, add mango pulp and pistachios and pour into kulfi moulds.

* Set the moulds in the freezer for two hours. After two hours take them out, insert ice cream sticks into each of the kulfi moulds.

* Let it set for another four hours and serve.
