I visited Kuremal last year but did not try the Stuffed Mango ice Cream. This year I made it a point that as soon as the summers start I will visit and the first thing I'll try is this. They have a very unique style of removing the seed from the inside of the mango and stuffing it with Mango flavoured Rabri. After this the mango is frozen in ice and later shifted to a freezer. With the temperature soaring this one is a must have for the season. . . . . . . . #dudeandthefood #streetfood #indianfood #desifood #mangoicecream #indiansweets #indiandessert #desserttable #delhigram #delhifood #delhifoodie #delhifoodblogger #indianfoodbloggers #sodelhi #dfordelhi #foodtalkindia #delhidiaries #instafoodie #foodphotos #foodfeed #delhifoodguide #foodbeast #cntraveler #bbctravel #delhifoodwalks #buzzfeed #huffposttaste #natgeoindia #olddelhi #chandnichowk
