Palki Restaurant: Best Indian Desserts

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 Indian Cuisine, Indian Desserts

Between delectable appetizers and rich, fragrant curries, it can often be difficult to save room for dessert when dining at Palki, one of the best Indian restaurants in North Vancouver. But Indian desserts are well worth saving room for! Complex flavours and palate-pleasing textures combine to create the perfect finish to any world-class meal. If you’ve got a craving for something sweet, be sure to sample some of our incredible Indian desserts on your next visit to Palki! We’re proud to feature a tasty array of after-dinner delights that will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.


There’s no better way to cool the spice of a delicious curry than with kulfi, a rich Indian ice cream. But this isn’t simply your average dish of vanilla! Since the milk is not whipped during preparation, kulfi is both richer and denser than North American ice cream. Not only does this method yield a sweeter and more solid dessert, the density means that kulfi actually takes much longer to melt, so you can really take your time and enjoy every bite. Are you an ice cream lover on the lookout for something new? Stop by Palki, your local West Vancouver Indian restaurant, and make kulfi your new favourite dessert.

Gulab Jamon

Gulab Jamon

Gulab Jamon is one of the best known and most well-loved Indian desserts around. These spherical sweets have been a staple of after-dinner enjoyment for centuries, and can also often be found at various festivals and celebrations. It’s easy to see why Gulab Jamon is regularly associated with happiness and joy! The main ingredient in this iconic dessert is milk solids, which are heated and blended with a small amount of flour to create a soft dough. The dough is then formed into balls and deep-fried at a low temperature. As a finishing touch, the fried dough is soaked in a thin honey syrup, which imparts the distinctive sweetness Gulab Jamon is known for. Enjoy them here, or choose Indian takeout near Vancouver and bring the experience home!


Next in the lineup of rich Indian desserts is rasmalai. This dish is a delightful medley of homemade cheese soaked in sweet milk and flavoured with cardamom. The result is an almost unbelievably creamy dessert that’s sometimes compared to a rich cheesecake without the crust. If you’ve enjoyed a few spicy dishes with your dinner, rasmalai is the perfect dessert to help tame the burn. Why? Dairy-rich foods contain casein, a protein that’s well-known for its ability to take the sting of spice away. Try it today at Palki!


Rice pudding is a traditional dessert across many different cultures. The Indian version is called kheer and is one of the desserts we’re proud to feature at Palki. Though the exact method of preparation varies across different regions, kheer typically contains rice, wheat, or tapioca, and can be flavoured with cardamom, pistachios, raisins, saffron, or almonds. At Palki, it’s served chilled, which makes it an especially nice choice on a sunny day.
