Falooda / Faluda

by - September 08, 2013


       Falooda is the king of  ice cream, Which is introduced by  Mughal Empire to India. I have shared the traditional method which has rose syrup, rabri, noodles, bails seeds, jelly,  fruits, nuts and ice cream and you can find this falooda in most of the restaurants in India with the same texture and taste. If you want to make instand falooda, then you can use rose milk instead of rabri but addition of rabri always give unique taste to your falooda. This can be prepared ahead for any parties, get together and can be topped with ice cream while serving.  
    This winning recipe is for this month SNC challenge which is started by Divya Pramil and challenged by Minnie of  thelady8home.com to South team and sharing the same for Blogging Marathon 32 ~ ABC Series.
