Kesar Falooda

Falooda or Faluda is a cold and sweet beverage containing many ingredients very popular in South Asia. Traditionally it is made by mixing rose syrup with vermicelli, basil seeds, jelly pieces and tapioca pearls along with either milk, water or ice cream. Faloodeh, originally Paloodeh or Pālūde  is a Persian cold dessert consisting thin vermicelli noodles made from corn starch mixed in a semi-frozen syrup made from sugar and rose water. It is often served with lime juice and sometimes ground pistachios. It is a traditional dessert in Iran and also in neighbouring Pakistan. Paloodeh is originally from Shiraz and in Iran it is especially famous as Shirazi Faloodeh.[1] Paloodeh is one of the earliest forms of cold desserts, existing as early as 400 BCE.[citation needed] The name originally means smoothy (filtered). In Iran paloodeh (faludeh) is sold in ice cream stores (bastani) and in shops which specialize in preparing this dessert. The vermicelli used are often made from arrowroot rather than wheat. The rose syrup may be substituted with another flavoured base to produce kesar (saffron), mangochocolate or fig flavour.

My mom and MIL are falooda lovers. Even I Iove falooda.. So thought of making a perfect dessert at home in this summer. I wanted to make everything at home. Usually we buy ice cream from stores.this time I didn't want store bought ones. So made it  myself. Everybody at home  loved it.

  • Fresh fruits chopped- one bowl..( Iused only pineapple)
