Mango Kulfi & Kudos to Blogger Aid

As many of you know, the food bloggers from across the globe have joined forces and have formed a group named BloggerAid. The growing group of international food bloggers have united in efforts to alleviate World Hunger. "Our vision is a world which provides for and protects the welfare and human dignity of all of its people. A world in which all children can grow, learn and flourish, developing into healthy, active, caring members of society".

BloggerAid has decided to support World Food Programme (WFP), the United Nations frontline agency, in its goal to provide food to the less fortunate. For nearly 40 years, WFP has been the largest operator of school meals programs in the developing world.

BloggerAid members are planning to publish a cookbook with the help of all the food bloggers and YOU! and 100 % of the profit from the sales of the cookbook will be directed to School Meals. The cookbook is targeted for sale on Amazon by November/December 2009. Check out the announcement for more details. Non-bloggers can also submit a recipe.

I thought that since I have a strong sweet-tooth, I should be submitting a Dessert!! My contribution to this cookbook is Mango Kulfi. This is the result of my experiment in submitting a recipe to this endeavour. I must say that it was very succesful and I am proud to be contributing this recipe to the book.


As I am not allowed to publish the recipe before the book is released, I can only give you some tempting pictures and a description of how it turned out. The mango kulfi was really creamy and decadent with the perfect texture of authentic Indian Kulfi. The tantalizing flavor of mango turned out to be in an excellent balance with the other ingredients. The flavor of the "spices" added make the kulfi all the more delicious. I garnished it with some chopped mango and pistachios. It is a must-try for all the dessert lovers out there. JM was asking for more every time he tasted it. I am sure he would've finished the entire thing if would've had let him!! I have also fallen in love with this recipe. I definitely will be making more of this. For now, I hope you all like the pictures of this awesome dessert.

The cookbook will contain contributions from many of your favorite food bloggers. I will update you all on the progress of this effort and you can also help by supporting the cause in ways that you can. Thank you all for reading this post with a cause! ;-)



The round-up for Lets go nuts : Almonds will be posted this week. So stay tuned for all the amazing entries from our participants!!


Have a great day!!
