Indian Popsicles

Hot sunny days always remind me the summer vacations spent during my childhood days indulging in ice pops (Popsicle) like paal-ice, semiya ice, javvarisi ice, thengai ice, pazha ice, panchamirtha ice, etc. Indian popsicles are so flavourful that we could find delicious chunks of native fruits like mango, grated coconut, chopped nuts, slimy tapioca pearls or smooth vermicelli while relishing chilled pops. Nowadays it is hard to find ice pops with Indian flavours, those milky ice pops are replaced by creamy ice cream, chocolate sticks, etc.

So this is my attempt to revive those forgotten ice pops that are truly Indian. Here I have prepared kulfi ice, thenga ice, semiya ice & rose ice using home-made condensed milk.

I have prepared condensed milk by boiling milk (2 Litres) until it was reduced to half and added sugar into it. Instead you can use store-bought condensed milk.
