    Bura na mano holi hai    Its a bit early to post Holi recipes but I’ve just join a new  group #Foodiemonday #bloghop. Every Monday we post a recipe based on the chosen theme. The 31st theme is #Fusionthandairecipes. Its really really hot in Mombasa and the only thing I could think of was something extra extra cold. I decided to make kulfi with my thandai masala. Taking photos was not easy as the kulfi was melting too fast. Holi, a festival of colors is celebrated by Hindus worldwide.

    Its mango again! I love making kulfis and yet again it was  mango kulfi. When mangoes are found everywhere in Mombasa, I just don’t seem to see any other fruit.

After feeling cool for say, 5 to 10 minutes go on a guilt trip…. worked out this morning or haven’t worked out and have consumed sugar, fat etc etc. Oh well, couldn’t resist sharing this yummy kulfi recipe. Its not the quick condensed milk version, this is the real thing with mawa and boiled milk. Kulfi is usually a good ending to a spicy meal or…

    Kulfi is a frozen dairy based dessert very popular in the Indian sub continent. It usually has flavourings like rose, kewra, cardamom, saffron etc. It can have a fruit puree in it or just plain.
