WHAT DOES KULFI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

kulfi

Kulfi

Kulfi is a popular frozen dairy dessert from the Indian Subcontinent. It is often described as "traditional Indian Subcontinent ice cream". It is popular throughout places such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Burma, and the Middle East, and widely available in Indian restaurants in Australia, Europe, East Asia and North America. As popularly understood, Kulfi has similarities to ice cream in appearance and taste; however it is denser and creamier. It comes in various flavours. The more traditional ones are cream, rose, mango, cardamom, saffron, and pistachio. There are newer variations such as apple, orange, strawberry, peanut, and avocado. Unlike Western ice creams, kulfi is not whipped, resulting in a solid, dense frozen dessert similar to traditional custard based ice cream. Thus, it is sometimes considered a distinct category of frozen dairy-based dessert. Due to its density, kulfi takes a longer time to melt than Western ice-cream.

Definition of kulfi in the English dictionary

The definition of kulfi in the dictionary is an Indian dessert made by freezing milk which has been concentrated by boiling away some of the water in it, and flavoured with nuts and cardamom seeds.
