I recently came across bloggers who were simply re placing their old images with new ones. I would not do that ‘cause it would feel cheating to me.

I would rather take you through my growth the way I am doing.

Notes

Adapted from the repertoire of family recipe.

  • I have never heard of malai kulfi before, it definitely looks delicious and the recipe ingredients all sound like something that i would enjoy devouring. Thanks for the recipe, i am curious to know what it tastes like, so i will be recreating the recipe and reporting back!

    • It definitely is rich, delicious and creamy. It is a popsicle/ ice-cream made by reducing milk & adding thick sweetened condensed milk. The closest I can refer to is a tres leches with similar ingredients. Hope this helps in relating to the taste.

  • I have tried pistachio kulfi at Indian Restaurant, it was so good. I never made kulfi before, thanks for sharing the recipe.
