About This Recipe
Falooda is an Indian dessert made by layering various ingredients in a tall glass. Falooda was gifted to India first time by Persians. The Persians were very fond of this dessert. As various Muslim merchants of Persia traveled to India, they introduced this rich dessert to our country. But the version of Falooda that we relish today was propagated by the Mughal Empire.
With time and tide, the recipe of classic Falooda underwent various transformations however, its royal taste remained untouched.
Falooda is primarily prepared using basil seeds, milk, rose syrup, vermicelli, or Falooda Sev et al and then as per different flavors, the variation of ingredients is inculcated.
Just like Mango Mastani, Kulfi, or Mango Shake, Mango Falooda has become my house fav now. The other day with the fresh stock of mangoes that I had recently bought, I prepared Mango Smoothie Bowl and this falooda.
Mango Falooda has to be one of the best flavors of falooda that one would ever taste. Mango and milk definitely create an awesome combination and as I had even added mango pieces and mango ice cream for making this delicious falooda, it tasted wholly more luscious.
As Falooda has many layers including that of rose syrup, basil seeds, falooda sev, milk it feels like a luxury every time one relishes this creamy dessert or beverage. You could buy squashes available in the market to experiment with the recipe or try seasonal fruits like mango, strawberry et al or even use chocolate for making falooda.
Mango Puree and Cubes – Since this falooda is flavored with mango, we will need mango puree and cut mango pieces to make it. You can also use the canned puree to make this recipe. Try to use the mangoes which are juicy and sweet.
Milk – It’s a rich dessert and so I suggest using full-fat milk to do full justice to this royal indulgence. Having said that, you can definitely make a leaner version by using toned milk.
Basil Seeds – Basil seeds are also known as sabja seeds, takmaria, or falooda seeds. You will find these in any Indian grocery store or online.
Rose Syrup – I used Rooh Afza. It’s a popular syrup in India and Pakistan and is available in Indian stores or online.
Falooda Sev – These Sev are specially used for making falooda. If these are not available, you can use vermicelli to make the falooda.
Ice Cream – Top the mango falooda with vanilla or mango ice cream.
Mango jelly Cubes and mango Custard also be included while making the layers to make this falooda even more extravagant.
Add crushed dry fruits like almonds, cashew nuts, and pistachios for an added crunch.
