These are the ice cream flavors of my dreams. Warm spices infused in rich and milky sweet cream transport you to the splendors of the Taj Mahal and beyond with these pints packing massive WOW factor.

Pooja Bavishi has been obsessed with flavors since she was a kid. As an adult, that passion become her profession, when she founded Malai, a small-batch artisanal ice cream company in 2015. Malai means “Cream of the crop,” and is a fitting name for Pooja’s ice cream creations, which draw inspiration from globally-sourced, whole ingredients and aromatic spices to create unexpected twists on classic ice cream flavors.

As a little kid, aroma was always at the forefront for Pooja, who’s memories of being small and sniffing her parents’ spicy masala chai tea were evocative enough to transform the memory into an ice cream flavor. Pooja uses ice cream as the perfect blank slate to showcase the familiar flavors of her childhood – warm spices like ginger, nutmeg, cardamom, and saffron. Now, Pooja crafts all the ice cream by hand for these totally unique and satisfying flavors.

We're not the only ones who love them!

The New York Times, ABC News, Gothamist, Edible Brooklyn, Forking Tasty, Business Insider have all taken note of Malai.
