Kulfi ice cream, is a version of ice cream that originated in the Indian sub continent. Unlike Western ice cream, you don’t whip kulfi to introduce air into the mixture. So it tends to be a much more solid and dense mixture, which takes much longer to melt.
Reputedly it was invented in the 1500’s in the Mughal Empire, dense evaporated milk was already a popular dessert, when it was mixed with additional flavours, packed into metal cones and immersed into slurry ice resulting in Kulfi.
Traditionally in India vendors called Kulfiwallers sell kulfi ice cream, serving it on a leaf or frozen on a stick.
