Guava and cardamom khulfi (frozen dessert)

Khulfi is an Indian dessert made of the richest of milk. Unlike ordinary ice-cream in that it contains no air, it is a dense frozen block. The flavours are whatever you fancy: pistachio, mango, saffron, to name a few. Serve khulfi when there’s something to celebrate and see how it spreads happiness.
