How is kulfi different from ice cream?

True ice cream is made out of cream, milk, sugar, and other ingredients for flavor. It's often fairly soft due to its high-fat content from the cream, and being churned as it freezes.

It is frozen in large containers and spooned out for individual servings, either in a cone or bowl.

Kulfi is usually made of condensed milk (which is whole milk and sugar) and flavor ingredients (often mango, pistachio, and other flavors considered 'desert' in India).

It is relatively hard and dense since it has less fat and is usually placed in a dish and frozen without mixing.

Its usually served as a popsicle or frozen in individual dishes, since trying to scoop kulfi often results in it breaking up into chunks.

There are also many other western frozen dairy desserts, such as frozen yogurt, or 'diet ice cream' without cream, which are often referred to like ice cream, and each has their own specific ways of being made

Overall true ice cream and kulfi are similar, they are both dairy-based frozen desserts, and can be even more similar if the ice cream is flavored with typical Indian flavors.
