Finally, the days of ice-creams, kulfis and popsicles are almost here! As the weather is undergoing a change from winters to the summers, we are all set to switch on the fans and enjoy the chilled desserts and beverages. One of the most popular desserts during summer is the very tasty matka malai kulfi. This dessert takes most of us back to our childhood days when we used to wait for that 'ghanti' (bell) of the kulfi-seller on a hot summer afternoon. The sound was equivalent to a fresh breeze!
When we talk about kulfi, it is mostly mistaken with ice-creams. Though kulfis are described as traditional Indian ice-cream, but it is denser and creamier than the latter. It is popularly said that the word kulfi is derived from Persian word ‘Qulfi' which means ‘covered cup'. Kulfi comes in various flavours, but the most popular ones are malai, kesar and pista kulfi. Due to its density, a kulfi takes longer time to melt than an ice cream.
Are you one of those who like keeping desserts at home at all times? If yes, then we are here to help you!
