TRAVALOGUE SERIES – SEASON 1 – Welcome to DELHI – VENKATARAMAN NAGARAJAN
Hi, this is Venkataraman Nagarajan, a travel enthusiast. In this series, I will share my travel experience to Delhi with you.
EPISODE – 1 THE MAGICAL KULFI
The capital Delhi comprises of two parts, Old Delhi and New Delhi. Traditional places like Chandini Chowk, Chawri Bazar are situated in Old Delhi. The place is loaded with traditional hotels, confectionaries, etc.
Several eateries there have passed over a century. Round the clock, countless people explore the overcrowded streets to savor the dishes and record tapes of their memories.
Traveling the areas of Old Delhi is riskier than you imagine. Self-driving will be too tough. This is due to the Narrowed streets, Luggage delivery, and battery rickshaws on either side of the pavement, Bullockcarts..etc.
It will be hard to walk on the streets without colliding with others, such a dense area it is. In case of negligence, some may hit and run on you. After the arrival of Metro Rail, the transport has become slightly comfortable. Still, I worry to step there.
In Old Delhi, a traditional, heritage shop is there, it is called Kuremal Mohanlal Kulfi Wala shop. It initiated its operation in the year 1906. a 115-year-old shop.
The unique dessert in this shop is stuffed kulfi. The Inner flesh of the fruit will be taken without damaging the outer surface skin.
Then the pulp will be mashed along with the ingredients of kulfi. Once done, the blend will be filled inside the emptied fruit. The setup will be deep-freezed and served as stuffed kulfi.
The taste feels unique in the kulfi. Besides, they serve mould Kulfi and varied flavored kulfi like Pan Kulfi, Kesar kulfi, Gulkand kulfi, Coffee kulfi, etc.
If there is any reluctance to tour Old Delhi to taste this, then there is another way. The shop has a branch in Bengali Market near New Delhi’s mandi house. There also you can buy the heritage of old Kulfi.
Here, I will share the image of Pomegranate stuffed Kulfi which I took.

If you get an opportunity to visit the place then give it a try. The price differs according to flavors. The lowest price is Eighty Rupees.
Okay, I’ll leave you here. Will pick you up at the next destination, Later.
