Falooda recipe, how to make falooda recipe with ice cream

I am sure many of you must be fans of falooda which is a popular dessert in India especially in Mumbai & Delhi.Yes it is heavy and really indulging dessert. But  once in a while I do make it. Its heavenly to have a glass of falooda in summers but I Can eat it any time of the year.

It is my moms favourite dessert too.

The basic falooda can be made with just four ingredients – soaked sabja seeds, rose syrup or rooh afza, falooda sev (these are vermicelli made from corn starch) and chilled milk. 

Adding sugar will be optional as the sweetness of the rose syrup is enough to make the falooda sweet. you can also add strawberry flavored jelly to the falooda. top with a bit of fry fruits or vanilla ice cream and your falooda is ready.

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.

A glass of Falooda Kulfi is a delicacy especially after Dinner. It makes your mind, body and soul happy and you don't feel like eating anything after that. Come today we will make a summer special delicacy -Falooda Kulfi


1.prepare the falooda sev according to package instructions. some require just soaking the falooda sev in warm water OR cook them in boiling water much like noodles. once they are cooked, rinse them in water and keep aside. Chop it to small pieces if sev is long. if you do not have falooda sev, substitute whole wheat vermicelli instead.
2. prepare jelly as per packet instructions
