Falooda picture
Falooda or faluda , is a very popular dessert in mumbai .Though i am in Bangalore for the past 6 years,i have not tasted it.I heard sivaraj lassi bar is very famous for falooda in Bangalore.I have to taste once there.Last month I tasted this falooda in Saravana’s icecream parlour,salem. I never thought i would make this at home. Thanks to Vanitha magazine and to my neighbour. She read the book and told the recipe to me .I have tried this thrice so far. Its a very easy & very tasty dessert recipe..As u all know , falooda is a mixture of falooda sev , basil seeds( Sabza/Takmania),Jelly crystals,sugar syrup and ice cream.I bought falooda sev / vermicelli and falooda seeds from Nilgiris , brigade road-Bangalore.Sabza / Takmania seeds is a best coolant for summer..This is a perfect dessert/drink to beat the summer heat ..The best thing about this recipe is we can pre prepare all the ingredients and refrigerate it. Just mix everything and serve chilled whenever required & it tastes AWEWSUM !! .. One sad thing is when i finished clicking , ice cream got melted and spreaded all over the glass Sad smile.. Still then it was very tasty Smile with tongue out ..
