Falooda – a drink for the hot summer with Rose, Cream and yummy ice-cream. Hot Summer Days call for Cold Falooda!

In the Persian language it is called it Faloodeh or Paludeh.  The Indian word “Falooda” is a Hindi and Urdu word.  Falooda is Bengali as well !

Serves 4

Prep time 15 minutes

Cooking time 0


  • 6 tbsps. of Falooda Sev (broken into small pieces)

  • 4 tsps. of Tookmuria (subja seeds)

  • 900 ml (1 1/2 pint) milk

  • Sugar * Diabetics can leave out the sugar or replace with sugar substitute

  • 4 tsps. rose water or rose syrup or 1 drop of rose essence

  • 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream


  1. Boil the Sev in water for 3 minutes or till soft and drain

  2. Soak the Tookmuria (subja seeds) in 1/4 pint milk

  3. Mix remaining milk and sugar and pour into 4 tall glasses

  4. Divide the seeds, milk and cooked Sev into 4 glasses layering each glass.

  5. Pour the rose syrup on top which being heavier will drift down making a lovely swirled effect. Alternatively use Orange Syrup and Orange Falooda Sev

  6. Chill in refrigerator

  7. Before serving add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, Orange Pineapple Icecream

  8. Serve with a saucer underneath for spills and a straw for drinking. I add a piece of fruit to complement like Pineapple chunks, Starwberries, Blueberries or even a rose petal.
