Amazing Indian Ice Cream - Mango Kulfi





When I was in Delhi, India, my main goal was to search out and eat as many Indian street foods and interesting things as I possibly could. After doing some searches, I finally came across Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale, a long standing ice cream vendor in the alleys of Old Delhi. Just a short walk from the Chawri Bazar metro station, down an ancient looking lane is the sleepy shop. I came to Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale to mostly sample something known as mango kulfi, which is the equivalent of a mango ice creamor gelato that's Indian style. At this particular shop in Delhi, they first take the finest mangos, which are normally alphonso in variety, hollow out the seed from the middle, and then fill the center with a special mixture of cream and spices. The mango is then covered with a thick layer of clay and allowed to freeze until turning into a solid brick. When you order the mango kulfi, it is then removed from the freezer and the vendor hammers off the clay from the top of the mango. Using nothing short of a hacksaw blade, the vendor slices of the skin from the mango. When that's all done, he slices the mango into thin bite sized pieces and puts them all the on the plate. Mango kulfi at Kuremal Mahavir Prasad Kulfi Wale is a real treat. It's frozen so hard, and the delicious mango goes so well with the thick Indian ice cream that's lightly flavored with a mixture of spices that includes cardamom. Delhi, India, is full of delicious Indian street food, but after a long day of walking around the streets of Old Delhi, there was nothing more satisfying than a freezing cold plate of mango kulfi!
