Kulfi is a frozen dairy dish that originated in the 16th century on the Indian subcontinent during the Mughal Empire. It is a traditional Indian delicacy that is frequently referred to as "traditional Indian ice cream." It is often sold by kulfiwallahs, or street vendors, in India. Ice cream is denser and creamier than kulfi. It's available in a variety of flavours. Cream (malai), rose, mango, cardamom (elaichi), saffron (kesar or zafran), and pistachio are among the traditional flavours. Apple, orange, strawberry, peanut, and avocado are some of the more popular flavours. Kulfi, unlike ice cream, is not whipped, resulting in a rich, solid delicacy that resembles frozen custard. As a result, it's sometimes regarded a distinct frozen dairy-based dessert category. Kulfi is derived from the Persian word qulfi, which means "covered cup." The dessert is thought to have originated in the 16th century during the Mughal Empire. In the Indian subcontinent, the viscous evaporated milk mixture was already popular in sweet dishes. This mixture was spiced with pistachios and saffron, put into metal cones, and then immersed in slurry ice during the Mughal Empire, culminating in the invention of kulfi.
