10 slices of kulfi
honey and rose petals to serve

For The Honey Laced Baskets
1/3 cup melted butter
4 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup plain flour (maida)
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp saunf (fennel seeds) , crushed
1/2 tsp crushed black pepper (kalimirch)

    Main procedure
  1. Mix the flour, saunf and crushed black pepper together.
  2. Combine the butter, sugar and honey in a pan and heat on a slow flame, stirring continuously till the sugar melts.
  3. Cool a little, then add the flour mixture and mix well.
  4. Place the mixture in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  5. Divide into 10 equal portions, roll into rounds.
  6. Put one portion of the mixture at a time in the centre of a greased tray.
  7. Bake in a moderate oven at 180°c (350°f) for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Remove and cool slightly. After 2 minutes, test to see if you can slip a palette knife under the rounds.
  9. Remove from the tray and place on top of an upturned tart mould or katori. Press lightly to shape it into a basket/cup. You can use a clean cloth to do this, as they need to be moulded while they are still hot. You can even roll these to make a cylinder.
  10. Repeat the procedure to make 9 more of these.
  11. Store in air-tight container.
