As I even type “Kesar Pista Kulfi“, I feel so tempted to have it. That is the impact of this extremely popular and yummilicious dessert. Kesar Pista Kulfi is almost like ice-cream but at the same time it is not an ice-cream. It is not just a desired dessert in India but is liked worldwide. The touch of kesar and pista add an idyllic feel and taste to this dessert. A favourite with our whole family, it is perfect to be had anytime and anywhere.
