Malai Ka Baraf wala where are you?
“Malai ka Baraf libeeee didiji”! A little girl would eagerly await the arrival of a mobile vendor, handi covered in bright red cloth and filled with Malai ka Baraf. To this day, she still prefers to refer to it as Malai ka Baraf rather than the modern term Kulfi. This delicious Indian ice cream is richly flavored with saffron and studded with nuts that bring her joy every time it's served.
The summer heat was stifling, and the power cut made it worse. But Kolkata's Kulfiwala's and Mallai ka Baraf-walas offered a lifeline of relief - a two rupee kulfi that could be bought at dusk. The young girl knew her mother well enough to ask for the money without too much fuss; in exchange, she'd get an extra half hour of studying time. Little did she know that the power wouldn't be coming back until nine o'clock! She had struck a clever bargain with her mother and was enjoying her sweet reward each evening.
Present-day and the recipe of Kulfi!
The evening of 2016 brought back memories for the now fully grown mother. She remembered the days when she indulged in Kulfi, that creamy, Pista-loaded cardamom-flavored Indian Ice cream. With a busy week at work behind her, she decided to recreate those days and make Kulfi for herself and her little munchkin. Unfortunately, her partner was on an overseas assignment but they still shared the experience virtually over Skype.

Process- Kulfi Faluda, the street side treat recipe!
Coming to the recipe, I have found that using a generous amount of Khoya or Mawa is essential for making a delicious Kulfi. The more Khowa you use, the creamier the Kulfi will be. I personally prefer to use homemade mawa for this recipe, as I find it yields the best results. Aside from the mawa, other ingredients are quite common; sugar, a selection of nuts, Keora water, saffron, and a small amount of rice flour.
The rice flour is the secret ingredient in this recipe, as it is what gives the Kulfi its body. To finish the dessert, just like the street-side shops often do, I like to top it off with a generous helping of rose syrup and faluda sev. This adds a delightful sweetness and crunch to the Kulfi, making it a truly irresistible dessert.
