Massaman curry is a rich, relatively mild Thai curry that is an interpretation of a Persian dish. Massaman is not a native Thai word. It is generally thought to refer to the Muslims with earlier writers from the mid-19th century calling the dish "Mussulman curry" being an archaic form of the word Muslim.

The dish may have originated in 17th century central Thailand at the cosmopolitan court of Ayutthya.  Other theories contend that massaman is a southern Thai dish, influenced by Malay and Indian cuisine or that its name is derived from the Malay word Masam, which means "sour". 

Due to its Muslim roots and therefore Islamic dietary laws, this curry is most commonly made with beef, but there are also variations on this dish using duck, chicken, lamb, or shrimp.  Vegetarians have created their own versions of this dish.  Massaman is usually eaten with rice.

The flavors of the massaman curry paste come from spices that are not frequently used in other Thai curries. Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cumin, bay leaves, nutmeg and mace would, in the 17th century, have been brought to Thailand from the Malay archipelago by foreigners, especially the Portuguese, the Dutch and French East India Company. 

Kulfi
is a flavored frozen dessert made with milk. It is a kind of ice cream that comes in various flavors.  Unlike western ice creams, kulfi is not whipped; it is a solid, dense frozen dessert
