The priceless small joys of life... Malai Kulfi, try getting that sensation from a tub of Ben & Jerry's

Sapna said...

So tempting ....and a unique way to serve it instead of on a leaf dona/drona!

Cybergabi said...

What gorgeous people! Of course, I immediately wanted to scoop up that little girl! :)

Manisha said...

Soma, and you will!

Niv, never been much of a fan of Ben & Jerry's. I used to love Parsi Dairy Farm's kulfi a lot!

Sapna, yup! That's what caught my eye, too!

Gabi, thanks!

Manjusha, still too cold to make ice cream and kulfi. In another month, yes!

Aparna, thanks!

TKW, she was super cute!

I love the uncle who is trying to pay for everyone's kulfi - I can imagine him pulling the note, not out of a wallet, but out of the top left breast pocket of his shirt, where it stays with other assorted currency notes, maybe a ball-pen, odd scraps of paper, and in earlier days, a really slim rexine covered address-diary, but now, probably a cellphone.
