Arbi for those who don’t know is the Urdu name for taro has a subtly sweet taste and is often used in savory recipes in Pakistan

Mainly I learned this recipe from my mother who used to make it with very simple methods and the taste used to be very good. an interesting fact about me is that I hadn’t eaten ladyfingers or taro root in my childhood whenever my mother used to cook I didn’t eat at all. but the time I heard about both vegetables they are so beneficial for bones. since then I started including these veggies in our menu. and Alhamdulilah now I m extremely fond of eating bhindi (lady-fingers) and arbi (taro root). specially fry arbi or bhindi. I have also FRIED BHINDI recipe put on my blog

Taro Roots Health Benefits:

Taro root is a vegetable used in a variety of cuisines around the world. It has a mild, nutty taste, starchy texture, and nutrition benefits that make it a healthier alternative to other root vegetables like potatoes. Taro root is commonly added to savory dishes or fried as a snack, but it can also add a creaminess and purple color to sweet recipes.

Taro is rich in nutrients that can provide important health benefits. A one-cup serving has a third of your daily recommended intake of manganese, which contributes to a good metabolism, bone health, and blood clotting.

Its high levels of vitamins can also promote healthy vision, skin, circulation, and immune system function.

Pista Kulfi Recipe


Pista Kulfi | Pistachio Kulfi || How to make Pistachio Kulfi with step by step photos

Pista Kulfi is the sweetest, delicious and lip-smacking frozen dessert made with milk, sugar, pistachio, khoya and cardamom powder

Basically, kulfi’s are traditional Pakistani dessert. this is very popular in neighboring countries like India and Bangladesh too. Moreover, kulfi’s have a very similar texture and appearance to normal ice cream. However, these are richer and creamier. also, there are several variants to kulfis, though I didn’t share more kulfi recipes except for a few_today I would be sharing the Pista kulfi recipe.

If we go with the history of kulfi then come to know that mainly kulfi is a Persian word and the origin of this recipe go back to the Mughal dynasty even before the conception of the Mughal dynasty, sweet thick evaporated milk was famous with the Hindu community. the Mughal community, topped the same mixture with pistachios, saffron. and gave a shape of a cone to the deep freeze in slurry ice.

To make kulfi khoya is the main ingredient the rest of the method is the almost same to make all type of flavored kulfi, towards the end can be added any desirable flavor in it 


Recipe notes:

  1. Firstly, use full cream milk for the best results.
  2. furthermore, you can replace sugar with condensed milk. this helps to give nice flavor and thickness.
  3. Additionally, to prepare badam kulfi, add chopped badam pieces. or you can also add badam powder.
  4. most noteworthy, use a thick bottomed pan and keep stirring in between. else there are chances for milk to burn.
  5. finally, you can also use ice cream popsicles or kulfi molds to prepare perfect kulfis as served in restaurants.
  6. I added a few drops of color since I heard artificial food color isn’t good for health this is the reason my pista kulfi isn’t looking green 
  7. I always avoid adding more colors in the meal if my mango ice-cream recipe has passed by your sight you would have seen my ice-cream isn’t looking yellow as compared to other mango ice-cream recipes likewise, my kulfi isn’t looking green
  8. But you can add more color if you want to give it to green color
  9. The rest of the taste of kulfi is quite the same as the market kulfi Alhamdulilah

For the best result follow my detailed step by step photo instructions and tips
