Falooda is one of those desserts that I loved the first time I tried it. However, for years I lived in a relatively small town where not only could you not find a creamery or ice cream shop that sold falooda but you could not even find a store that sold the ingredients. It was such a pleasant surprise to find grocery stores with all the ingredients when we moved to Texas. And then we found a creamery that sold some great tasting falooda.
For some reason my daughter does not like this dessert. My husband and I do not go out just for dessert and so we have not been to the creamery in a long time. Last week I ended up with a lot of ice cream in my freezer and this is one way I decided to use it. I followed Pavani's recipe the end result was tasty and awesome.
You will need
1 tsp rose syrup
1 tsp. basil or sabja seeds
2 tbsp falooda noodles
1 cup milk
1 tbsp condensed milk
2 small scoops vanilla ice cream
crushed nuts to garnish
Soak the basil seeds in a 1/2 cup of water for about 15-20 minutes. Soak the falooda noodles in water until soft. In a tall glass add the rose syrup. Drain the basil seeds and add them to the glass. Drain the noodles and add them over the top. Add the milk and condensed milk. Scoop in the ice cream. Gently stir the mixture but do not allow the layers to mix completely. Garnish with nuts and serve.
