A good dessert can certainly uplift your mood. Be it a yummy breakfast or an after-meal indulgence, sweet dishes are always winning hearts. We might be a tad bit biased when we say that nothing can beat the decadence of Indian desserts. On top of this list is the modest kulfi. Railways Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and Uttarakhand chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami recently enjoyed this classic Indian dessert and even shared a video of the same on Twitter. The 15-second clip, which has clocked over 80,000 views, featured Ashwini Vaishnaw and Pushkar Singh Dhami relishing kulfi falooda at a local vendor's shop. Tweeting the video, Ashwini Vaishnaw simply wrote, “Kulfi.”
