Thandai Kulfi

Who doesn’t love frozen desserts? Thandai Kulfi is a creamy concoction that has delicate fragrance and taste of traditional thandai and it’s frozen!


Kulfi is the desi version to western ice cream and gelatos but it is usually made be cooking milk for a very long time, until it has reduced until very thick, then sweetened, flavored and frozen until firm which makes it a perfect Indian dessert for parties. With Holi festival around the corner, I decided to make this Kulfi using the Thandai Masala.

As you all know thandai is a very rich and tasty drink made with milk, various nuts, poppy seeds and spices. Thandai is significantly prepared for holi festival and mahashivratri. I have already shared thandai recipe here so here comes an easy thandai flavored kulfi recipe this year.
