Strawberry Falooda (VIDEO)

Falooda is a Mughalai originated Indian version of an ice cream dessert made with various layers consisting of milk, jelly, noodles, sabja seeds and ice cream. I love falooda because we get to taste a different layer of bites in this refreshing summer drink. There can be n number of variations of this dessert, as many there are ice cream flavours. So, there are no hard and fast rules to make a good falooda. You can always play up with different flavoured jellies, corn flakes, choco chips and many more to add on and make your own version of falooda. 

This is a strawberry falooda that I made using fresh strawberries. I first made the strawberry crush and then prepared the strawberry milk with it. I have used the thin vermicelli that you make kunafa. But if you get hold of falooda sev then use that. Strawberry jelly, Strawberry Ice cream(eggless) is added on top of the fresh strawberry milk shake. If you are interested to try making strawberry ice cream at home, then here is the link. Do give this a try and enjoy !!

  • In the meantime, add the strawberry crush, add chilled milk(2 cups) and sugar in a blender jar. Blend to a smooth mix. Refrigerate until use.

Then again, add a layer of strawberry jelly. Pour the milk until almost full and add a scoop of strawberry ice cream to finish. Serve immediately !!


* You can always alter the quantity of jelly, sabja seeds, cooked noodles in each glass. Add a layer of crunchy corn flakes too for an additional crunch.
