This summer, it is time to re-invent the buffet experience at the casual-dining restaurant chain Barbeque Nation. The restaurant has recently introduced a live counter called “Kulfi Nation” as one of its star dessert concepts in the buffet menu, and that too, at no extra cost! Now you can treat your tastebuds with innumerable kulfi combinations. The chefs here can create almost 800+ kulfi variations, with six basic kulfis. That said, obviously, the live kulfi counter is quite happening here. Get spoilt for choices with different kinds of sprinkles, cold toppings, spices and crushes! “Mera wala kulfi”? I bet, it can’t be just one. Thank you, Barbeque Nation, Andheri, Mumbai, for rekindling our love for kulfis!
Made with pure milk, these sinful kulfis are creamy with no ice crystals, and with perfect sweetness. You can choose your favourite kulfi flavour first and then, to go with it, add the dip sauce, cold toppings and sprinkles. If you are feeling lazy or can’t decide on what to choose, just choose a basic kulfi and let the experts at Barbeque Nation do their work by combining the best flavours and textures to go with it, exclusively for you!
The Kulfi Nation live counter at any Barbeque Nation across the country would have six time-tested flavours to choose from: Malai, Kesar–Pista, Fig, Paan, Mango and Strawberry. The three indispensable and evergreen cold toppings are of course there, which include the Falooda, Sabja and Rabdi. But to spin magic on the desi kulfi, here comes six awesome crushes: Strawberry, Mango, Choco sauce, Khus Syrup, Caramel sauce and the all-time-favourite Roohafza. If you want to add more beauty to your Indian dessert, do sprinkle some of their chopped almonds, mukhwaas, gulkand or pista over your kulfi. Still need more choices? Try their choco-chip sprinkles (two kinds), choco vermicelli, silver balls, colourful balls and Tooti-Frooti for the finishing touch.
For those hardcore spice-lovers who love even their dessert with spices, here are some daring flavourings to try out on your kulfi. Whether you prefer to sprinkle cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, star anise powder or the fiery black pepper, make sure you don’t sprinkle too much of these spices, so that these don’t get overpowering with the kulfi.
Street-food dessert hygienically prepared and eaten at an ambient Barbeque Nation, with tasteful live music to make you smile and unwind, these kulfis dominated our weekend-evening dinner so much so that after enjoying the unlimited starters, we decided to skip the entire Main Course spread for the sake of tasting kulfis of different kinds! The live counter at Barbeque Nation, Andheri, was buzzing with kulfi-patrons making a beeline to try out their favourite kulfi variations.
The Strawberry kulfi was great. The flavour and sweetness were just right. We tried the strawberry kulfi with different toppings. The first Strawberry kulfi was with tooti-frooti and two kinds of crushes (Strawberry and Khus syrup), served with pretty silver balls. It was a colourful combination and the flavours complemented each other very well.
The second Strawberry kulfi that we ordered was with sabja and falooda, along with strawberry crush and colourful balls. This combination was rocking! We felt like ordering the same combination again, but restrained ourselves, as we wanted to experiment with other flavours as well.
The Mango kulfi was good, but it needed a little improvement. I felt that it should have little more concentration of the mango pulp for a fuller taste. In the upcoming mango season, it would be great if they include even a few pieces of fresh mangoes with this kulfi.
The Paan kulfi was amazing! A perfect way to end an Indian meal, the flavour of paan kulfi was just perfect in every respect. The toppings of gulkand, mukhwaas, tooti-frooti, silver balls, cardamom powder and the khus syrup added layers of refreshing flavours in complete harmony with each other.
The Fig kulfi was pretty good too! I loved it with the caramel sauce and finely chopped almonds. It was simplicity with loads of taste. However, when I ate a Fig kulfi without any topping or crush, I felt that the fig content in the kulfi could have been a little higher for a greater experience. Caramel sauce tasted great with Fig kulfi, but a bolder and unique version could have been using salted caramel sauce instead. Still I would say, this kulfi is worth a try with these toppings! Go for a little nutmeg powder on the top, if you like spices.
We also tasted the Kesar-Pista and Malai kulfis without any topping, and still, these were fabulous! Barbeque Nation, known to offer delicious buffet spread in a reasonable price range, gets even better with Kulfi Nation. A tempting place to satiate your kulfi cravings, Barbeque Nation promises great summer meals with that perfect sweet note!
