Malai Kulfi is a dish to please anybody who has sweet tooth.It is my mother-in-law’s one of the favorite dessert. Whenever she sees a kulfi shop, she will definitely have one. The satisfaction on her face is priceless..:-)
It was her birthday, I decided to gift her with home made malai kulfi. I saw a 5 year kid in her while she was having it with so much love..That made my heart smile..:-)
