One more falooda verity on blog – Mango falooda 

I am so excited to share falooda recipe with you guys today. This is my most favorite recipe that I make it in summer whenever I crave for some dessert. How can I forget that it is also dear hubby’s favorite dessert? Yes it is heavy and really indulging dessert. But yeah once in a while I do make it.

My next goal is to make falooda sev at home. FYI, falooda sev is made from corn starch or corn flour and water. If you are familiar to falooda then you know what falooda sev is. But for those who does not know, here is the photo of raw falooda sev from store bought packet on left while cooked and drained falooda sev on right. I bought it from Indian grocery store and you can see sev is yellow in color.

Other interesting and key ingredient is falooda seeds aka sabja seeds, basil seeds, tukmaria.  You need to soak them for at least 30 minutes. More soaking time does not hurt. Even you can keep refrigerated soaked sabja seeds up to a day. And after 30 minutes it swells up water and creates gel like layer around it. Below left is sabja seeds and right is soaked seeds after 30 minutes. Please continue reading here more about basil seeds, if you are interested in health benefits of it.

The beautiful pink color of this faluda is comes from rose syrup (another key ingredient). Rose syrup is easily available in Indian and here in USA, you will find in Indian grocery store. Instead of rose syrup, you can use rooh afza as well. It will still taste good.

Last key ingredient is sweetened milk. We are boiling the milk and sugar for some time. So it will thicken slightly and sugar will get melted. After the boiling, this needs to be chilled in the refrigerator.

You need to plan some elements like soaking sabja seeds and boiling-chilling milk ahead of time while making falooda. But all the effort is worth when you enjoy a glass of falooda. And yes making homemade falooda is also economical.

Here I have also added a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top just like we get at falooda stalls. Hence you can call it falooda with ice cream. If you want to make it light then you can skip the addition of ice cream.

Lastly, it is garnished with chopped pistachios and organic chopped rose petals. It is optional though.

Falooda comes in between category of beverage and dessert. But I prefer to call it as a dessert. This is little heavy if you consider it as a beverage. And most important that you have to eat 80% falooda with spoon so I call it a dessert.

So what are you waiting for? Note down the needed ingredients and buy it next grocery trip and make delicious falooda this weekend. Enjoy with your family.
