Bombay Kulfi Joint of Bhowanipore is a calming refuge in summer
After the comforting chilly seasons of winter, the summer time has finally arrived to squeeze the life out of us. The energy level has hit the rock bottom thereby diminishing our appetite. We are forever complaining and looking for a ray of hope which would lessen the torment caused by the unsettling summers. Even the foodies of the city do not seem to get tempted by delicious platters during this season. Amidst the sweat, heat and the lingering discomfort associated with the season, an icy cold kulfi acts as refuge, enables us to combat the sweltering heat and brings a smile even to the cranky faces tired of dealing with heat.
Summer fresh mango kulfi
Many of us still prefer kulfi –the traditional Indian ice-cream over fancy ice-creams because of its taste. Popularity of kulfi dates back to the Mughal period. Be it at the dessert section of luxury dining tables or roadside stalls, kulfi is a hot favourite in the city. No fancy ice cream parlours in the city have been able to tarnish its glory, magic or popularity.
