J - Jamun Kulfi - Vegan

Jamun Kulfi is a delicious ice kulfi made with the pulp of jamun or black plums . This is a vegan kulfi or perhaps you would like to call it a popsicle ! With some chat masala .These are also called Julpeps.

When I made my list for Street Food , I decided to make this Jamun Kulfi . This is one of the varieties of kulfi that we BM friends enjoyed at Kuremal’s Kulfi Shop in Old Delhi . Unfortunately I could not procure jamuns as they were not in season , I realised that I could only get these in July . I looked for Jamun Juice but they were available in big bottles and were for Ayurvedic use . I gave up and decided on something else , I got all ingredients too . Then one day we had a potluck and I was asked to make a nice mocktail , but sugar free . My friend suggested a drink with Jamun pulp . Again I was reminded of my Jamun Kulfi ! Where do I get Jamun pulp was my question – and guess what she had a big jar of frozen Jamun pulp from her own farm . Can you imagine my joy ! I was on cloud 9.

I did not even ask her , just told her that I wanted some from it , trust me this pulp has such a amazing flavor , and of course a pretty color too .

Jamuns are very healthy and they help to relieve stomach pain, carminative, anti-scorbutic and diuretic. Jamun vinegar is good to reduce enlargement of spleen, diarrhea. Jamum’s ployphenolic compounds are effective against cancer, heart diseases, diabetes, asthma and arthritis. Various digestive disorders i.e. flatulence, bowel spasm, stomach disorders, dysentery are cured by these jamuns .

The Jamun Kulfi at Kuremal

I must say Jamun is not liked by all . It is an acquired flavor and some varieties leave your mouth very dry . I remember as a kid we had vendors selling these with salt and then mixing them in a clay pot . I loved to eat them as it would make the tongue purple !

Coming to the Kulfi , I used ready pulp , but when jamuns are in season , you just need to choose the ripe variety . Remove the seed and purée the pulp using just a bit of sugar . You then strain the pulp to get rid of that skin .once the pulp is ready it takes just a few minutes to get the Kulfi done and experience the natural flavor of the fruit.

While on the food tour to Chandni Chowk we Explored the Flavours of Street Food and I still remember Jamun Kulfi stole my heart from among the vast variety of Kulfis that we had .So girls here is the Jamun Kulfi , which brings back so many happy memories .

  1. OMG, Jamun Kulfi looks so vibrant and absolutely delicious. Glad you got the jamun plup in time and made this amazing kulfi. Again such a unique recipe from you :- )

  2. Just the name itself is making me drool and the kulfi pic from Delhi is making me soooo nostalgic! I am now eager to but jamuns just to make this kulfi.I have to wait till June/july i guess. Do you think it will work with the jamun juice?

    1. PJ , no the Jamun juice will not work . It Will be more like a popsicle and not kulfi . The Kulfi needs more body , so it is the pulp that we need to use , of course the pulp has to be diluted to get that right texture and consistency .

  3. Omg, how pretty and catchy this jamun kulfi looks, just can take my eyes from those delicious kulfi, one of the fabulous street food. Would love to enjoy this chilled dessert.

  4. Oh God, Vaishali, you are just taking me back to Delhi virtually. Loved those jamun kulfis there. And you have surely nailed it. It looks so much like what we had in Delhi. Yum..

  5. Omg di this jamun kulfi looks fabulous , I mean fabulous is just word which not enough to describe this beauty, so yummy .. why are teasing us with the empty bowl not fair 😛 this is mindblowing !! I am awww always when I come here …

  6. Those jamun kulfi look so creamy and delicious Vaishali. I am not a big fan of jamun because they leave this strange feeling in the mouth. But looking at your pretty kulfi, I’m so tempted to give them a try.

  7. Such lovely colour Vaishali and I am reminded of our visit yes,,..such beautiful clicks and you are so lucky that you got it from your friend. I remember the conversation we had on this as well..how very nice to relate to the post finally!

  8. Have had jamun ice cream but not kulfi. Such a beautiful color and with little sugar. Wish I had read the post a week ago. Now the jamun season is over and I’ll have to wait till next year.

  9. As kid Ioved jamuns and would always pluck them on the way home from school. I won’t mind finishing the delicious kulfi, even all of it.

  10. What a beautiful color Vaishali. You were just destined to make the jamun kulfi for the mega BM and that is why you were able to get fresh frozen pulp. Jamun definitely has an acquired flavor. Been a long time since I ate any 🙂
