Citizens, the “Week of World Pasta” nears its end with a unique pasta drink/dessert from India!
Falooda is a cold beverage popular in the Indian subcontinent. Traditionally it is made from mixing just four ingredients – soaked sabja (sweet basil) seeds, rose syrup or rooh afza, falooda sev (these are vermicelli made from corn starch) and chilled milk.
There is no need to add any sugar, as the sweetness of the rose syrup is enough to make this sweet. Top with a bit of dry fruits or vanilla ice cream and your creation is ready. You have to enjoy this dessert drink with a spoon.
This drink/dessert is equally popular all over India, but especially in Delhi and Mumbai. It is not only delicious but also very cooling for dealing with the Summer heat, as both sabja seeds and rooh afza are very cooling in nature.
If you do not have falooda sev, substitute whole wheat vermicelli instead.
Enjoy this delicious and unique pasta dessert drink, my Citizens – it would make a fitting end to a spicy dish such as vindaloo!Print
