Famous Food Joints In Delhi-NCR: You must have seen them being sold on ice cream parlors and street vendors of well-known companies in the capital. Earlier, Kulfi used to be negligible on them, but in view of the increasing demand, most companies have also included Kulfi in their product. But we are taking you to the famous Kulfi shop of Delhi. Where Kulfi-Faluda is very famous. The name of this shop is enough. But the special thing is that only four varieties of Kulfi-Phaluda are available here. Let me tell you one thing that we have done a lot of research on why Falooda is associated with Kulfi and for what reasons the custom of eating Falooda with aromatic and pleasant Kulfi started.
But only it was found that falooda was added to the kulfi to dilute the sweet taste and to make the dish more visible and to reduce its coolness. The custom of Kulfi-Faluda continues from all over North India to Hyderabad. The special thing is that in the olden times, Kulfi-Phaluda was available only during summer, but now it can be eaten for 12 months.
Only four types of Kulfi-Faluda have kept their color.
You must be familiar with the Karol Bagh area of Delhi. It is one of the heavily commercialized areas of Delhi. There are many markets and markets in Karol Bagh. Out of these, you will see a restaurant named Roshan Di Kulfi (RDK) on Ajmal Khan Road. If you ask any resident of Delhi which dish is most famous in Karol Bagh, he will say that Roshan’s Kulfi. Markets were started in Karol Bagh area only after the independence of the country, this restaurant is also earning a name since then.
This restaurant is famous by the name of Kulfi, but here you will see only four or five types of Kulfi-Faluda. These include the most famous Kesar Pista Kulfi-Faluda, Sugar Free, Pan Falooda Kulfi and Chocolate Kulfi-Faluda. Mango Kulfi-Phaluda is also available here in summer. But only these four types of Kulfi-Faluda have kept their color in Delhi. Those who come to Karol Bagh for shopping, they try to eat Roshan’s Kulfi-Phaluda.
Thick sugar syrup enhances the taste over the Kulfi-Faloda.
The kulfis of this restaurant are prepared in the traditional way even today. After boiling milk for hours, according to taste and quality, goods and dry fruits are put in it, then put in special molds, after closing the mouth of the molds with dough, then it is deposited in a pot. Nowadays freezing has become a new trend, but its manufacture is going on in the traditional way. The way of serving is superb. Kesar Pistachio Kulfi-Faluda sells the most at the restaurant.
On your request, the kulfi will be removed from the mold and put in pieces in the plate. Falooda will be placed on top of this kulfi. After that, once again the saffron containing falooda will be kept after adding thick sugar syrup. Then it will be presented. Only after eating this you will feel that kulfi of some different taste is being eaten. Kulfi-Phaluda will feel like floating in the mouth. The fragrance of milk, khoya, saffron, pistachio, cardamom will be filled in the tongue. The cost of all these types of Kulfi-Faluda is Rs 140.
There is much more to eat in the restaurant but the water is only of Kulfi-Faluda.
Now this restaurant has expanded. Now you get Chole-Bhature, Tikki, Chaat apart from Veg Tandoori items, South Indian food and Chinese dishes and many types of sweets. But the beauty of Kulfi is that whatever you eat, you will not be able to stop your mind from eating Kulfi-Faluda as a sweet. Now let’s see the history of this shop. The work of selling Kulfi was started by Roshan Lal in the year 1951. For years, Kulfi and later Falooda were added to it and sold it. After that Chole-Bhature joined. His four sons Ashok Kumar Soni, Jogendra Kumar Soni, Satish and Subhash Soni helped in this work.
When the work was done, the food and drink dishes started being added continuously. Now the sons of these four sons Chakshhu, Ishaan, Piyush and Ayush have also joined this restaurant. This is a joint family and even today they are working together only. This restaurant starts at 8 in the morning and till 10 in the night various items can be enjoyed. Since the area is crowded and busy, there is no holiday. This restaurant also has a branch in Rajouri Garden.
