Falooda belongs to the Indian street food Category. It is a good drink as well as good dessert also. We can make royale falooda or simple falooda of our chice. But the main ingredient is falooda sev, subja seed and chilled milk of any flavor. I bought this Falooda sev from Hyderabad. It was very thin, so it was overcooked. You can keep an eye while cooking falooda sev. You can use normal vermicelli also.
Let us see how to make Falooda
- Milk – 2 cups
- Basil Seeds – ½ tbsp
- Strawberry Ice Cream – 1/2 cup
- Jelly – ¼ cup
- Falooda Sev – handful
- Rose Syrup – 3 tbsp
- Sugar – 1 ½ tbsp or to taste
- Cherry – 3 for garnishing
- Pistachios and almond – 1 tsp for garnishing(grated)
Soak the Basil Seeds in water for a minimum of 30 minutes, longer is better.
Meanwhile, heat 2 cups of water in a pan; let it come to a boil.
Add Falooda Sev and let it cook for 3 minutes. Take it off the flame. Strain the Falooda Sev.
Also, heat the Milk and let it come to a boil. Take it off the flame.
Add Sugar and Rose Syrup and mix.
Allow the milk-mixture to chill in the refrigerator – approximately 3 hours.
Prepare jelly as per instruction in the pack and refrigerate 30 minutes.
In a glass, add 1 scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and then pour the Chilled Milk.
Garnish with the grated pistachios, almonds and cherry. Serve immediately.
If you Like your desserts sweeter – just add extra rose syrup and sugar.
If you are running short on time, you can use cold milk (without boiling).
Health conscious people can use Low Fat Milk and Low Fat Ice Cream.
You can add finely chopped fruits also.
Cook falooda sev carefully. Mine is overcooked.
