How to make Leftover Barfi Kulfi with step by step photos recipe - After festive season of marriages or festivals over, our refrigerators are generally full with leftover sweets which we recieved in Indian wedding, which stay there neglected for days, for one reason or another, it doesn't get finished. 

Ice-cream or Kulfi is incredibly versatile sweets, if you have left over Indian Mithai (Sweets) from your refrigerator at home, you can use it in ways you've probably never thought to before.

I am sure most of us can relate to this situation. Of course, you can use up leftover sweets in many ways. 
So if you got a lot of leftover sweets and need another creative idea. Then you must try my idea.

I feel very bad when I throw into the bin, there's nothing worse than watching waste away. Instead of letting it go to waste, I decided to play with it and make a "barfi kulfi"...

Ice cream is one of my favorite dessert in all seasons, I know it's winter time people usually do not prefer eating ice creams but me and my family really liked it :D I prefer to make ice cream at home because it's more hygienic and healthy too !!

Winter me Kulfi khaane ka kuch alag hee maza hota hai...yummmmm !!

full concept of making burfi kulfi is very simple and easy to prepare. My granny used to make this ice cream during our childhood days, we all siblings really liked it..very thick, less sugar and delicious :)

They taste like thick, creamy and delicious to have it any time means any season :D 

The amount of sugar may vary, depending on the sweetness of the mithai's. Do not use very old sweets(mithai), otherwise the milk might split.
