Imli Ka Kulfi - Delhi Special

Delhi, the capital of India is well known for its cosmopolitan way of life. Delhi offers best cuisine and the very best of the taste from all over the country. Delhi been a most favoured and favourite city of Mughals, Delhi cuisine have the secrets of the rich and royal Mughali foods. This cuisine consists a superb mix of aromatic spices, butter based curries, loads of dry fruits and roasted meats cooked in earthern ovens called tandoors.Since Punjab is nearby to Delhi, punjabi recipes brought by the Punjabi community to Delhi are quite popular in Delhi. Obviously the traditional food of New Delhi has no distinctiveness. However certain food items for which Delhi is quite famous, mostly for its streetfoods.

For example Chandni Chowk area of the city boasts most delicious parathas aka many sort of Indian bread. Infact most of the areas of Old Delhi is famous for the local Delhi cuisine. There is a Bengali market in New Delhi is very much popular for its chaat papri, golgappas, sweets etc. As i told earlier, Delhi is popular for street foods,many roadside vendors serves awesome local cuisine. Initially for today's post for Delhi, am planning to make some papdi chaat, but finally i opted for this mildly tangy,sweet and mildy spiced tamarind kulfi aka Imli Ka Kulfi from Vaishali's space which i bookmarked during our ABCD long marathon. Thanks to Vaishali, i thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic Kulfi.
