Mango Kulfi

At last, after the longest winter in history , the summer months are finally upon us.Cities around the country have hit records recently, with London City’s heat index reaching 32 degree C over Fourth of July weekend
Here in London everybody is enjoying the hot weather. Am seeing lot of BBQ parties and park festivals.The city looks very colorful and modern.

Last weekend I had a guest in my home they asked me to do only indian dishes specially Tamilnadu special dosa..We South indians preparing dosa and sambar is not a big deal but I felt that its too simple menu for a dinner party so I planned with variety of dosa like masal dosa,podi dosa,ghee dosa and panniyaram with sambar and two types of chutneys and at last I come with indian special dessert Kulfi. This make-ahead creamy treat is the refreshing end to a meal and is the ideal dessert for summertime entertaining with indian touch.

Kulfi is a traditional icecream having the same taste and creamy texture but is ridiculously simple to make. Kulfi is basically a frozen dessert rather than calling it icecream. Typically icecream has a creamy texture and soft whereas kulfi is little dense. Kulfi takes long time to melt as well.

Traditionally in India, kulfi is sold by vendors called kulfiwala who keep the kulfi frozen by placing the moulds inside a large earthenware pot called a "matka", filled with ice and salt. It is served on a leaf or frozen onto a stick. It can be garnished with pistachios, cardamom and similar. Often it is served as "falooda kulfi", which is kulfi with rice noodles, rose or any flavour sugar syrup and other ingredients. Popular flavours include pistachio, mango, vanilla, and rose.


Verdict - My guest loved it so much and asked me the recipe..so here follows :)
