Rooh Afza Sundae {Eid Eats 2016}

I’ve never been one to turn down an invite to a party that involves food – even a virtual one, so I’ve created another fun and easy dessert for Asiyah, Sarah, and Henna’s Eid Eats link-up! After last year’s gulab jamun cupcake experiment, I wanted to keep the dessert trend going and put a new spin on a classic Eid staple; Rooh Afza.  Enter the Rooh Afza sundae topped with chopped pistachios, almonds, and just a hint of dried rose petals. rooh afza sundae{Rooh Afza – a staple at most festivals and celebrations in India}

Choose a rich, creamy ice cream (make it at home if you want something really special), lay out some toppings and a bottle of Rooh Afza for your guests, and let them go to town! Bonus: mom doesn’t actually have to make the dessert and can put her feet up for just a few minutes. rooh afza sundae, pink chai 3My ever growing collection of mix and match brass bowls (including some from my grandmother’s trousseau) are filled with topping options. If you have kids at your Eid dinner you could even include mithi saunf/candied fennel for fun.rooh afza sundae, pink chai

    Raj, you are the rajkumari of fusion desserts hehe!
    Love this east-meets-west sundae, and thank you for participating in EidEats2016!
    Also, I apologize for my late comment. My brother is getting married in mid August, and I left for California (my parents home is located there) soon after Eid. I’ve been so busy with shaadi-prep that just now I’m getting a chance to sit down and check out the rest of the EidEats participants posts!
