About Falooda Recipe

Falooda is a cold and sweet beverage that originated from Persia and was brought to India by the Mughals. This refreshing beverage is usually served in Ramadan as it contains ingredients with many cooling properties. This delicious drink is so well-loved at home that all we need is an excuse to make some.


Ingredients to make Falooda

  • Agar-Agar (China Grass) - 10 gms
  • Whole Milk - 750 ml
  • Condensed Milk - 200 gms
  • almonds - 25 gms
  • pistachio - 25 gms
  • Vanilla Essence - 1/2 teaspoon
  • basil seeds (Khus Khus) - 1 teaspoon
  • sugar as required
  • Ice Cubes - 8
  • Food Colouring – a few drops
  • Ice cream essence – 1 teaspoon (optional)

How to make Falooda

  1. Soak the agar-agar (china grass) in cold water for 10 minutes. Strain. Place in a sauce pan with 2 cups of water and boil till it melts. Cool the mixture and pour in a container and refrigerate.
  2. Soak the basil seeds (khus khus) in about 50 ml of water for 15 minutes till they swell.
  3. Soak the almonds and pistachios. Remove skin and chop finely.
  4. Mix the milk, condensed milk, sugar, chopped almonds and pistachios, vanilla essence, basil seeds and ice cubes. Grate the solidified agar-agar mixture using a fine grater. Mix well and serve chilled.

My Tip:

Serve the Falooda with jelly or vanilla ice cream to make it into a dessert.
