Continuing with summer desserts its time for Kesar Pista Kulfi .
Apparently King Akbar mentions the Kulfi in his 16th century journals thus you find Kulfi and Falooda combination is deep rooted in North India's culture especially Old Delhi.
Having spent most part of my childhood in Delhi ,kulfi has a very special place and brings back some lovely memories!!
Kulfi or Indian ice cream, as its popularly known,is rich,creamy and dense.Its laden with Almonds,Pistachio and delicately flavored with Saffron and Cardamom.
