kulfi ice cream



Kulfi Ice Cream is a popular frozen dairy dessert from the Indian Subcontinent. It is often described as 'traditional Indian ice cream.' Unlike Western ice creams, Kulfi is not whipped, resulting in a solid, dense frozen dessert similar to traditional custard-based ice cream. It comes in various flavours, including cream (malai), rose, mango, cardamom (elaichi), saffron (kesar), and pistachio. Kulfi has been a traditional treat in Indian summers for centuries.
