Take a pan and pour one liter of milk. Then slowly reduce it to 400 ml. We need to constantly keep stirring to avoid sticking or burning. In a separate pan, make the mango puree and cook it slightly, and then add to the milk. Keep stirring and cook for about five minutes to infuse the flavour of the mango with the milk. The add ¼ cup of sugar and keep stirring till the sugar dissolves. Then add a tablespoon of custard powder for added thickness. For a vibrant hue, we can add a drop of yellow food colouring. In the kulfi molds, pour the mango mixture and insert kulfi sticks or ice cream sticks in the molds. Then refrigerate the molds for at least six hours, or overnight, to get the perfect Mango malai Kulfis. After the kulfis are set, take the molds and run warm water on them briefly to take the Kulfis out of the molds. Sprinkle basil seeds, almonds slivers, pista slivers, chopped mangoes and tutti frutti on the kulfis and serve chilled.
