Badam Pista Kesar Kulfi – Frozen Indian Desert

Summers have arrived and in this soaring summer frozen desert takes the first place. Everytime eating kulfi outside is not feasible, though you will find kulfi vendors at every corner of the street. So, here’s the simple yet again healthy version kulfi. This kulfi contains good amount of dry fruit such as almonds and pistachios with the goodness of saffron. The kulfi is made by boiling and boiling the milk, bringing it to half the amount. KIDS can be made happy by this homemade version of kulfi.
