Rozy Rozy Gulkhand Kulphi

Have you ever tasted ice cream when you are drenched in rain ? That too in wet clothes ? My father likes these experiments and when we where kids we went

for a visit to the market. When coming back suddenly it started raining and before we could reach the nearest shelter we were drenched. The shelter happened

to be an ice cream parlour and my father surprisingly called us for a cup of icecream. We kids cannot deny that and it is a wonderful experince to have ice

creams when you where shivering with wet clothes. Luckily we did not catch any cold so escaped from my mom’s scoldings.
The same feeling I had when I hit the idea of making this icecream for the event

Warning: Please don’t be skeptical about the usage of rose flower in this recipe.

Milk – 2 cups
Gulkhand – 2 teaspoons

To be ground to a coarse powder:
Badam & cahshew – each 10
Saffron – 2 strands
Cardomom – 2 pods

Left to right - Gulkhand, Badam+cahshew powder, Plain flour 

Hot to make ?
Boil the milk and cool it to room temperature. Add the Gulkhand (recipe to be spoted soon) and mix well. Filter it in a colander and squeeze the residue to

extract maximum liquid from it. Return the vessel to the stove and add the ground powder to it and boil further till the milk reduces to half of its quantity. Switch

off the stove and let it cool to room temperature. Pour this liquid to kulpi moulds and freeze it for 2-3 hours. Once set invert it in a tray and serve it rose petals
