Hot Chocolate Kulfi

When I was younger my grandma would bring me a Fudgsicle when she would pick me up from school during the summer. 

Ghughra Galette

In the galette version, the pie crust is filled with a frangipane-like filling using the ingredients typically found in ghughra.

Seero (Semolina Pudding)

My version doesn’t have much sugar, so feel free to increase or decrease the amount of sugar to your liking.

It wasn’t until Vasavada was an adult living in San Francisco that she realized how much she missed the Indian sweets of her childhood. 

Berry Bhapa Doi

Most of the sweetness comes from the berries, so feel free to play with the amount of sweetened condensed milk so that the sweetness level is to your liking.
