mewad ice cream in mumbai

mewad ice-cream is synonymous with ice-cream on the streets. it's usually hand made each day by a single / group of persons, and often the maker and seller is the same person. found in all parts of mumbai, especially in khau-gullys and on beaches. aswhini from MMO and me were to once do a story on these guys, but it never happened. found this piece in The Hindu about mewad ice cream, quite an interesting read.
for non-indian readers: mewad is a region in southern rajasthan, a few thousand kms north west of mumbai

I like the way the cones hang down like stalagmites.
