A walk through Chandni Chowk – Kulfi!

The Kulfi is somewhat an Indian variant of Ice Cream. It is believed to have originated during the Mughal period about 400 years ago with ice from the Himalayas!

Imagine carrying ice hundreds of kilometers from the cold Himalayas to the sweltering Indian capital of Delhi to please the appetite of what was the most powerful court in the world at that time in history.

A walk through Chandni Chowk

I recently walked through Chandni Chowk, the iconic street market of Delhi. I’m going to put up a series of pics on the various people and places that make this mayhem of a market what it is.

There are small shops the width of just one man that serve water in the summer to weary shoppers and labourers. No bottled mineral water here for people in a hurry.
