Today’s recipe is ‘Falooda’. It is a cold beverage which can be served as a dessert also. It is perfect for summer season as it is full of very soothing ingredients. Falooda is made my ice cream (optional), milk flavoured with rose syrup, vermicelli noodles, sabja seeds (basil seeds), jelly pieces and dry fruits. There are many versions of falooda available all over the world, some uses kulfi or fruits chunks instead of ice cream scoop. Other name for this delicious summery dessert are faluda, faloodah.
For falooda we use special types of noodles which are very thin in comparison with the regular vermicelli. Falooda is served cold, in which we layer sabja seeds then noodles and then jelly pieces. So now on enjoy your falooda at home, with full satisfaction of cleanliness and hygiene.
