History of the Kulfi

Kulfi is a popular frozen dessert that originates from India. It is believed that kulfi has been around since the Mughal Empire in the 16th century when milk and sugar were boiled together to make creamy and sweet ice cream. However, it was during the 16th and 17th centuries that kulfi began to be served to the royal families of India. Since then, kulfi has become a popular dessert not only in India but in several other countries across the world.
