Kulfi is a Indian ice cream. Traditionally made with made with boiled milk, sugar, saffron, pista and cardamom. Unlike the regular ice cream, kulfi is denser and thicker on account of it not being churned. Instead, the ingredients are often boiled like a custard before freezing. Because of this, kulfi is sometimes categorised as a frozen custard instead of an ice cream. With less calories and sodium than normal ice cream, the dessert has no artificial coloring or sweetener – making it a more natural substitute.
