Icy Milky Falooda

It is not adequate for a falooda to just be sweet, a good falooda is one with a fine scoop of flavored ice cream, crunchy almond flakes, and flavored milk pep up together with jelly textured basil seeds and vermicelli, need I say more? In a true expression of the word, this healthy drink is really a quintessence of exuberance worthy taste in summers and the way it carries all the flavors in one big glass. While flashing down the memory lane Haji Ali fruit center strikes back all the happy hours spent with my gorgeous family, when dada used to take us along for a healthy heavy snacking, I have frequented in the days when I lived in Mumbai. The Haji Ali fruit center has stood up for really good eateries and mainly the custard apple (sitaphal) milkshake. What distracted me was the tempting list of fruit juices, I recall the flavorful Schezwan club grill sandwich was best and my brother’s special butterscotch falooda, his simplest pleasure of life.

In the mood of falooda, I settled on making this yummy milky dessert at home, with delightful memories to fulfill the strong perfection with rose syrup and jelly textured cooling effects. This dessert has always worked out great for me by allowing me to quickly refrigerate rose milk and vermicili in the morning for the instant evening preparations. I always serve this glass of drink with a light dinner to hit the spot by serving the right amount of kick.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 2 glasses

1 pack of pistachio ice cream, you can also try vanilla, strawberry or mango flavored ice cream as per your preference.
1 cup full fat milk
3-4 tablespoons basil seeds, if unavailable, you can use Chia seeds
½ cup rose syrup, I have used Roohafza syrup
1 cup falooda noodles or vermicelli
½ cup jelly (click now for jelly recipe), I have used strawberry jelly.
1 cup chopped pineapple, I have used the tin one's.

  • Firstly, soak basil seeds in water prior 1 hour of making falooda, as soon as they bloom simply drain the water and leave it aside.
  • Secondly, bring milk to boil and simmer until it reduces in quantity and becomes creamy in consistency, bring it to the room temperature and add 2 tablespoons of rose syrup and mix, refrigerate.
  • Prepare falooda noodles as per the packet instructions, rinse the cooked noodles and leave aside to cool, along with cool down the empty serving glasses half an hour before.
  • Prepare strawberry jelly (click here for its recipe) and slice it into cube shape.
  • In a glass, add 2 tablespoons of rose syrup, gently make the addition more or less as rose syrup adds sweetness in your drink, add 1 tablespoon of basil seeds, 1 tablespoon of cooked noodles and 1 tablespoon of jelly cubes, pour in chilled rose milk till 3/4th of the glass.
  • Gently scoop pistachio flavored ice cream on the top continuing with the addition of sliced almonds, cubed jellies and pineapple cubes, you can add mango pieces or cherries too. Serve immediately for fresh scoop of ice cream and yummy drink! Enjoy!
