Refreshing Falooda

        Refreshing  Falooda – Indian Dessert

Most of the restaurant here in Singapore  have falooda in their menu list. But if I order, they always say ‘ Its not available now madam ‘ like that. Even in north – Indian restaurant. 

Falooda -Indian Dessert

Recently  I tasted falooda in Singapore that too on my birthday visit to Anjappar. But the falooda wasn’t authentic. They added sago instead of basil seeds. No sev also… But ice cream was quite good in taste. They added lots of fruit just to fill up the glass.All other dishes were extra ordinary except falooda. So I was not completely satisfied.

I think I tasted falooda for first time in Chennai while I was working there. Recently when I went to India [last October] I got chance to taste falooda in my home town  and it was just awesome.

Now its summer and I wanted to make it at home and making falooda at home is my long time dream. But that dream didn’t come true becoz of falooda sev. I am not sure where to get it in Singapore and I am not ready to search in as well.. So searched online for falooda sev as homemade and came to know its very simple to make at home.  So made it couple of time at home. Loved it a lot. So here is my version of falooda. You may check out my homemade falooda sev recipe incase interested .Click the link show shown below
