Falooda ~~SN Challenge

Yesterday i was eagerly waiting to see our this month's South vs North Challenge an event owned by Divya Pramil, unfortunately we the South Indian Team came to know about our challenge very late in nite. Eventhough before leaving to bed, i checked the recipe and its our family favourite Falooda, this drink is in my  to do list since ages, but somehow i couldnt able to make them earlier. This time how can i skip this drink, whenever we go to Indian restaurant, my daughter will definitely order this chilled and sweet beverage and we love to have a sip from her's. Everytime she yells on us for finishing wat she ordered but who cares and everytime we do the same. Obviously when i prepared her favourite drink at home, she had this drink after her lunch and enjoyed finally a tall glass of this falooda completely by herself.

Do you know Falooda or Faluda is a cold and sweet beverage containing many ingredients which is very popular in South Asia. Traditionally it is made by mixing rose syrup with vermicelli, basil (sabza/takmaria) seeds, jelly pieces and tapioca pearls along with either milk or icecream.Falooda vermicelli are often made from arrowroot rather than wheat. The rose syrup may be substituted with another flavoured base like mango,chocolate, saffron or else with any other fruit syrup but my choice is always rose syrup.Nowadays faluda is a popular summer drink throughout Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and the Middle East and is readily available in restaurants and beach stalls.Thanks to this month's North team Minnie of The Lady8home for challenging the South team (which i belongs) with this incredible beverage while Vijayalakshmi of our South team challenged the opposite North team with Ellu Poorna Kuzhakattai, a must for the upcoming Ganesh chathurthi in every South Indian's home.Minnie suggested us two versions of falooda one with icecream and second one with malai kulfi, somehow i went for the icecream one.



2cups Chilled milk
1cup Milk (warm milk)
1/2tsp Saffron
2tbsp Rose water
5nos Almonds (sliced)
15nos Pistachios (sliced)
1tbsp Chironji/Charoli
Few Cashew (chopped)
4tbsp Rose Sryup
 A Handful of Falooda noodles
3Cups Water (for cooking the noodles)
1/2cup Basil seeds
Few scoops Vanilla icecream or Malai Kulfi

Add the rose syrup to the chilled milk and place it in fridge.

Meanwhile soak the basil seeds in a cup of water, it will take an hour to plump.

In a cup of warm milk,soak the saffron,rose water,cover and keep it in fridge for an hour.

Boil the noodles in 3cups water until soft, drain the water.

Now immerse the noodles in saffron soaked milk and place it in fridge until assembling.


To Assemble:
In  two tall glasses, drop the 3/4 of chilled noodles with quarter cup of saffon milk.

Top it with 2tablespoons of basil seeds.

Pour in the chilled rose syrup into the glass.

Top it again with two scoops of vanilla icecream.

Now pour in the remaining saffron milk and rest of the noodles.

Garnish it with the choped nuts.

If you want more sweet, drizzle a little more rose syrup.
