2 tbsp sabja seeds/sweet basil seeds
2-3 tbsp of vermicelli/semiya/falooda sev
3 tbsp rooh afza/ rose syrup
1-2 tbsp dry fruits finely sliced cashews/kaju, badam/almonds, pistachios/pista
2-3 tbsp kulfi ice cream
3 cups milk
2 scoops of vanilla ice cream for topping
finely sliced dry fruits for garnishing


Preparation steps before making rose falooda recipe:

Step 1:

Take 2-3 tbsp of sabja seeds in a glass or bowl, add some water to them until they are dipped well.
Soak them for about half an hour until they triple in their size and become puffy.
Place the soaked sabja seeds in refrigerator or aside.

Step 2:

If one is using falooda sev, then follow the directions behind the pack and use them.
If one has seviyan/vermicelli, just boil them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, strain them, run the semiya under cold water, strain the semiya and spread it on a flat plate to avoid the semiya sticking to each other.
Semiya is ready to be used later.

Step 3:

Take 2-3 tbsp of rose syrup or rooh afza and keep it ready.

Step 4:

Finely slice all the mentioned dry fruits.

Step 5:

Add the milk into a pan, simmer it for few minutes until it reduces to half or it becomes thick.
Switch off the flame and refrigerate it or place it aside.

Step 6:

Keep the ice creams handy like kulfi, vanilla ice cream etc...

Making of Falooda:

    • Take a glass, add the soaked sabja seeds as the first layer.
    • Add cooked semiya or cooked falooda sev as the second layer.
    • Add rooh afza or rose syrup as the next layer.

Recipe Notes

1. Here, to make falooda I have freshly made all the steps mentioned and if one wishes to have this drink regularly, then it is better to store all the cooked ingredients in refrigerator and use them within a day or two or can be served to guests.
2. Ice creams and kulfi can anyways be stored in deep freezers whereas milk, soaked sabja, sliced dry fruits can be kept refrigerated and used with in few days.
3. Always store rooh afza in room temperature as it solidifies if stored in fridge.
4. With all these ingredients available, faluda can be made instantly and served.
5. If falooda is prepared freshly as mentioned in the steps in the recipe card then, do refrigerate the drink and allow to chill for an hour before seving as it tastes the best when chilled.
6. Any flavored ice cream can be topped over the falooda while serving.
