Instructions
For the kesar pista kulfi
  1. In a small bowl, soak the saffron in a little warm milk and keep aside.
  2. Dissolve the arrowroot in 2 tablespoons of water and keep aside.
  3. Put the milk in a broad non-stick pan and bring it to a boil.
  4. Add the arrowroot solution and sugar to the milk and mix well.
  5. Simmer over a medium flame, stirring continuously till the milk reduces to a little less than half the original quantity (about 450ml).

  7. Transfer the final mix into 5 kulfi moulds and freeze overnight till it sets.
For falooda

  2. Put the mixture to boil on a slow flame. Go on stirring and cooking until the mixture becomes semitransparent.
  3. Put the mixture in a ‘sev' press and squeeze by hand through the sieve into a vessel filled with chilled water and ice cubes.
  4. Preserve the falooda in water till required.
Serving
  1. To unmould the kulfi, allow the kulfi moulds to remain outside the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then pull it out gently by inserting a wooden skewer stick or a fork, in the center of the kulfi.
  2. Put 3 teaspoons of rose syrup and 1 tablespoon of falooda in a serving bowl. Top with the kulfi (or top the kulfi with the syrup and falooda).
