Kala Khhata Gola (healthy Pomegranate Sweet And Salty Ice Cream)

As a Kid, I used to love Summer and Rainy season. The reason is quite obvious, In summers we used to get a month long holiday and during rains, we used to get surprise holidays…’’Rainy day’’. Unlike other kids, I used to finish my Holiday Home works within a week so that I could enjoy the rest of the holidays without worrying about it. Sometimes we used to pay a visit to my grand mothers’ house in Uttar Pradesh. There I used to play the whole afternoon with my cousins and used to enjoy the local snacks, kulfi and Ice creams. My favourite was this Kala khata gola, a unique combination of salty, spicy and sweet flavoured black colour syrup poured over crushed and moulded ice. After many years, I discovered a local vendor near VIP market in Kakurgachi, who sells exactly the same ice cream.
However, As I have grown up, I am a little conscious of the hygiene factor and thus one day I evolved my own version of Kala Khhata gola. So, if you too have had this ice cream before and are thinking of a home made version….Here is the recipe.
