Another recipe which is synonymous with Indian dessert!! Not only does this drink taste good, but it is also considered to be good for our health due to the sabja seeds used in the drink! I also replaced the falooda sev with the bean thread noodles & found that it did not make much difference taste wise! Kate this recipe is for you:) In case you want to make the falooda sev from scratch , just let me know & i will post Mallika badrinath's recipe for you.
Rose milk syrup - 1/4 cup, cold milk - 1 cup,sabja seeds - 1 1/2 tbsps, soaked for about half an hour , bean thread noodles - a handful, vanilla ice cream - a scoop.
Add the mung bean threads to boiling water & boil for a minute till they become soft & transparent. Drain & rinse under cold running water & reserve. In the serving cup first pour in the rose milk syrup, then pour in the milk gently down the sides of the cup, add in a tbsp of the cooked vermicelli & 1 1/2 tsp of sabja seeds. Do not stir! Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream & serve immediately!
Mrs Mallika Badinath's recipe for Falooda sev :
Mix 1/2 cup cornflour very well in 1 cup of water till well blended. Bring the mixture to boil over low heat , stirring continously & continue cooking till it turns into a thick dough. Fill the mixture into idiyappam press & press to form sev into a bowl filled with ice water . The falooda sev must be preserved in the cold water until used.
Kate this one is for you, enjoy:)
