Chase off the summer heat with a cooling kulfi from any one of the 5 listed places
The summers are upon us and there is no better way to deal with the scorching heat than to bite into a creamy kulfi. Think kesar pista, think rabri and think icy cold falooda submerged in sugar syrup. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you, summers in Lucknow are all about kulfis. Kulfis make up a big chunk of our hangout sessions, with the sun threatening to burn our skins off hitting up a kulfi joint after work or school and enjoying the delectable bite of thickened milk is all we can think of.
So here’s a list of all the kulfi places in Lucknow that we adore and cannot live without.
We all know that an article about kulfi would remain incomplete without mentioning “Prakash ki Mashoor Kulfi”. Yet, we've heard and read so much about Prakash that it has become somewhat redundant. Which is why, in the listicle you will find no mention of “Prakash ki Mashoor Kulfi”, but the places we have mentioned are equally good, if not better.
The Moti Mahal Restaurant is definitely one of the most popular Kulfi spots in Lucknow. Located in the busy streets of Hazratganj, you can just rush to the place after a tiring shopping session and grab a rich and satisfying Falooda Kulfi . The kulfis they serve are few of our favourites and they serve it with falooda soaked in saffron.
Chanakya is one of the legendary kulfi outlets in Lucknow. The kulfi at Chanakya is made with a mixture of malai, milk, kesar and dry fruits and it is sinful, to say the least. The best and the most unique thing about this place is that instead of setting the Kulfi in the freezer, they churn the ingredients in a cylindrical steel utensil which acts as a new version of matka filled with crushed ice, making the kulfi thicker and creamier.
Chhappan Bhog in Lucknow is a favourite for all those who have a sweet tooth. To bear with the scorching heat of the season, Chhappan Bhog offers you a variety of unique fruit kulfis like Aphonso Mango, Tender Coconut, Muskmelon, Chikoos and a ton others. They also serve sugar free kulfis for those who are a tad diet conscious, so you can enjoy the dessert and have no guilt after.
Amrit Kesariya Kulfi is considered to be one of the oldest and the most loved kulfi spots in Lucknow. It is a small shop situated along the narrow and busy Chaupatiyan Chauraha of Chowk. It is immensely famous for its Kesar Kulfi which comes in two options- on stick or with faluda. Their kulfi is quite fragrant, creamy and extremely satisfying.
Neelkanth Sweets is the place for you if you are fond of Indian sweets or breakfast staples such as kachoris, dhoklas and more. They serve a variety of palate pleasing kulfis such as kesariya kulfi with or without faluda, fruit kulfi, badam kulfi, etc. The kulfis are creamy, filled with nuts for a much needed texture change and are made to perfection.
So there it is. Make the best use of the summer season and cool down by grabbing your favourite kulfis from any one of these places.
