Recipe Directions

In a bowl, mix the cacao powder, agave nectar, coconut oil, kewra water, and vanilla extract. If the mixture is very thick, add 1 tsp water. With mortar/pestle or spice mill, grind pistachios until they are in small pieces. Coat the bananas with the chocolate mixture and then roll in the pistachios. Put coated/rolled bananas on a plate lined with wax paper, and cover with another layer of wax paper. Place in freezer overnight. Done! Woohoo!

Ask your average South Asian what their favorite frozen dessert is, and the answer invariably comes back as kulfi. Kulfi is a dessert thats been made in India for hundreds of years, and comes in a variety of flavors from cardamom to pistachio to mango. I have wonderful memories of my grandma bringing fresh batches out of the freezer for all us grandchildren to enjoy, and its been a favorite of mine ever since. Traditionally, its made by boiling down milk until it gets very thick, and then adding whatever type of flavoring you’d like. For my version, I chose an old American classic (chocolate), and mixed it with a traditional essence of the East, kewra. Along with the frozen banana as a base, its one flavorful dessert.

Kewra water is the essence of a flower called Kewra in India. You can find it at most Indian/Arabic/Persian stores. Rose water can be substituted as well. Or try the other suggestion on this comment thread of orange blossom essence.

never though about orange blossom water. that sounds really good.

I actually tried making this with cardamom before though, and I'm not sure i like chocolate and cardamom mixed together in large quantities.
