Namaste Authentic Indian Cuisine: Part 2 (Kulfi,Masala Chai,Buttered Naan and Gulab Jamun)

*left to right: Pistachio Kulfi; Masala Chai; Buttered Naan; Gulab Jamun

Now here are great endings to cap an authentic Indian feast! These featured desserts certainly deserve a separate post. Each is uniquely Indian and not your ordinary dessert fare. Namaste!

Pistachio Kulfi P125 - a flavored frozen dessert made from milk which originated in India similar to ice cream in taste, texture and preparation; takes longer to melt than ice cream; a fitting dessert to after a spicy meal with its creamy consistency and nutty pistachio bits - heaven!

Masala Chai P80 -"spiced tea"; beverage from the Indian subcontinent made by brewing tea with a mixture of aromatic Indian spices and herbs; a perfect alternative to coffee

Buttered Naan P70 - a generic term for various flat-breads from different parts of the world, the name stems from (New) Persian; a typical naan recipe involves mixing white flour with salt, a yeast culture, and enough yogurt to make a smooth, elastic dough; not exactly a dessert fare but its great to munch on even after a meal because of its buttery flavor

Gulab Jamun P80 - Milkballs in Sweet Syrup also known as "waffle balls," is a popular dessert in countries of the Indian Subcontinent such as India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh from Persian; from gulab, "rosewater" referring to the rosewater-scented syrup, and"Syzygium jambolanum" , a South Asian fruit with a similar size and shape; for the sweet tooth this wonderful dessert is served comes in four packed "waffle balls" best coupled with Masala Chai
