Milk dry fruit jelly

Happy Navratri …

Sharing one more experiment from my kitchen – milk dry fruit jelly. Its important to have good calorie balance even during festivals. High calories sweets on somedays and low calories sweets on other days. This recipe is a low calorie nutricious dessert. It tastes just like kulfi. It takes time to freeze but the preparation is fast. Excellent coolant in hot weather. To add a touch of color to the presentation I added a spoon of strawberry jam at the top.

    • In Indian grocery store you will get china grass sheets or agar agar powder. you can try plain gelatin (less quantity), instant vanilla pudding mix. Quantity will change. I tried only china grass powder and china grass sheets. For cheese cake i used agar agar.
      Thank you
