While heavy mithai like hot Jalebi , Gulab Jamun and Malpuas are ideal for cold winter nights, a sweltering summer’s day calls for something cool and refreshing.

This Rose and Tender Coconut Ice-Cream is the ideal mithai for such occasions. It is quite simple to make but has a very exotic flavour and luscious mouth-feel, with slender rose petals and smooth tender coconut tickling your taste buds every now and then!

This makes it appeal to a broad spectrum of people, from kids to adults, foodies to choosy eaters, and from those who love traditional flavours to those who like to experiment.

It fits well into a grand menu just as beautifully as it makes a homely Occasion special.
