Kulfi falooda

 Kulfi is frozen Indian ice-cream  that is creamy and served chilled with or without  falooda ( they are  like rice noodles) and  topped with rose syrup. This combination is  a delight to the palate and a must in most Indian get together including weddings.

This is a very simple yet tasteful version of making kulfi

Ingredients for kulfi making.

Boil  falooda by heating  2 cups water and as it boils, close the heat and drain the falooda and refrigerator ready falooda for about 30 minutes to an hour.
1/2 cup rose syrup to drizzle 1 tspn on each served kulfi.
Method: 1.In a medium bowl add condensed milk, next add in evaporated milk,heavy whipping cream, and cool whip, using a hand blender mix it all together, its that simple.Lastly add in the ground nuts, and saffron.
