The joy of slurping on creamy chilled kulfi on a super-sunny day is above all.
Summer season is here in full swing and we are thinking about all things cool and refreshing – from juices, salads and citrusy fruits to shakes and ice-creams. Didn’t we all love to gorge on those lick-lollies after school in the afternoon? Some of us love gorging on homemade kulfi, a close cousin of ice cream! Kulfis have been a part of Indian cuisine since ages and is undoubtedly one of the most loved desserts.
It is believed that kulfi was first originated in the royal kitchens of the Mughal Empire in the 16th century. With its creamy concoction that is delicately fragrant and frozen, kulfi has one primary ingredient – full fat milk that traditionally has to be boiled for hours to get a silky, caramelized flavour. The distinct flavour and a smooth texture of kulfi is due to the continuous stirring of milk. It is this distinct caramelised flavour that has us hooked to this delectable delight. No wonder this Indian dessert holds a permanent place in restaurants across the country! But did you know that you can make irresistible kulfis at home too? Yes, you read that right!
