Indian Ice Cream
There is nothing more heavenly than kulfi. From kids to elderly people, everyone loves this Indian ice-cream. They are better made at home as readymade ones are adulterated due to expensive ingredients. It’s quiet easy to make and have a long shelf life. I prepare them well in advance for parties or anytime when I am free, they come in handy when there is no sweet dish to serve.

Looks great & I like the use of saffron but could I use something besides 'cool-whip'?

Cool Whip in this particular "quick and simple" recipe makes the kulfi light and fluffy, even after it has been frozen. Many of the traditional kulfis which are cooked are a lot more dense in texture. Although we have never tried it, you could probably get heavy whipping cream and actually whip it, and then add it in. Let us know how it turns out if you give it a try. Co-Hosts: Hetal and Anuja ShowMeTheCurry.com

You've inspired me to run to my local market and make this asap, especially because its so simple!! I've recently taken a liking to Indian food, and there's nothing better than kulfi at the end of my meal, no matter how absolutely full I am! I can't wait to make this with my children, its the perfect afterschool treat!

I love this recipe..I made it last about a year ago, everyone loved it. I was wondering did you recommend elaichi in it before or has it always been without it? I seem to remember putting elaichi in..? About to make it again and was hoping I get a response. Thank you=)
