I had prepared in large quantity. I had chilled some for him. Then when I was serving my hubby, got this idea by seeing the colour why not I try and see how it comes.

My family really enjoyed it and my hubby was surprised with my idea/method. I told him after he enjoyed it:-)

Do not make the juice the day you buy orange leave it for 3 to 4 days outside. Then it will be sweet. If you prepare juice the sameday it will be sour sometimes.

You will know by the colour and quantity. Once its reduced taste and check for sugar as kulfi will be on slightly sweeter side.
Add the mango puree and mix well and allow it to cool.
Once cooled pour it in the ice cream mould or jelly mould and freeze to 4-6 hours. If ice crystal are formed mix well and again freeze it.
Before serving keep the cups in water for 2mins for easy removal and Serve immediately.
