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 !
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
Boil the Sev in water for 3 minutes or till soft and drain
Soak the Tookmuria (subja seeds) in 1/4 pint milk
Mix remaining milk and sugar and pour into 4 tall glasses
Divide the seeds, milk and cooked Sev into 4 glasses layering each glass.
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
Chill in refrigerator
Before serving add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, Orange Pineapple Icecream
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.
