A summertime staple in India for centuries (yes, centuries) has been the traditional Indian ice-cream, more popularly called the Qulfi/Kulfi. If you already know what I am talking about, you are probably salivating at the thought of having your favorite Qulfi to beat the devil out of the tropical summer. If you don't know what Qulfi is, brace yourself, it is a creamy, dense and flavorful dessert that is made by boiling milk over a low flame for an extended period of time. It is the healthier version of a regular ice cream.
Qulfis are well loved across the country. They have several variations and can be served in creative ways (for example with hot Gulab Jamuns). Street vendors to fancy restaurants and even households, Qulfis are easy to get used to and fall in love with. Some prominent flavors are mango, pistachio, strawberry, almonds, rose, saffron and sometimes a mix of these flavors to bring a wonderful burst of summer's best. Tempting, isn't it?
Our Qulfi is perfectly blended that has Saffron, Pistachios, Almond and Malai to give this sweet, creamy dessert a healthier and crunchier edge. Saffron is a spice which is mainly used for natural food coloring and seasoning. It is a powerful antioxidant, aids weight loss and is believed to lower blood sugar levels, making this a fantastic ingredient for the Qulfi. Pistachio enhances the overall flavor of the Qulfi and it is rich in protein and fiber. I for one, cannot get enough of the taste and texture of pistachios in the Qulfis. Lastly, almonds bring about that crunchy texture which takes any dessert to the very next level. Most desserts all over the world contain almonds, so obviously one could never go wrong when picking a Qulfi which contains almonds in it. They are also rich in Fiber and Protein. They aid in reducing blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and blood pressure.
