Saffron Kulfi (Indian homemade icecream)

Summer instantly reminds us of cool Kulfi, laced with heavenly Iranian Saffron and Indian Cardamom. Mouth-watering and so full of flavor, many of us love it much more than the typical ice cream available year round!

Today we’re gonna show you how to make a home made version which tastes far more flavourful than the store-bought kind. Saffron Kulfi is also a perfect pair with hot Carrot Halwa giving a fun hot-cold taste sensation. An added option that is preferred by many Indians is also to add chunks of mixed nuts into the cream along with the saffron and cardamom. Pistachios are the traditional nut of choice, but lately macadamias are also very popular. Enjoy!
