Mango Kulfi with nutmeg (জায়ফল) flavor

Kulfi is an Indian ice-cream which is much easier to prepare. It doe snot require eggs or ice-cream machine. Mangoes are queen of summer. Therefore, mango kulfi is the perfect frozen dessert for the summer. Besides, they are so easy to prepare and can be prepared without any special ingredient, machine or technique. Most, mango kulfi recipes use cardamom as flavoring agent. But, I have used nutmeg. We at my home, love the nutty and sweet flavor of nutmeg, which perfectly gels with mango.
