Royal Kulfi Falooda

Royal Kulfi Falooda, true to its name is a royal dessert made with ice cream, vermicelli, basil seeds and nuts. It is laced with rose syrup.

Like all recipes, the Royal Falooda has different versions and I have memories of tasting this Royal Falooda in Mumbai at Badshah. The Pink glass with tiny opaque dots looked like a work of art. Back then, I had no clue what I was drinking. Over the years I have seen the Royal Falooda made with different components. The noodles, basil seeds, ice cream and rose syrup are the prime ingredients. Variations are made by using jelly cubes or tutti-fruity and different kinds of nuts.

Milk definitely is one of the prime ingredients for the royal falooda, but I have completely omitted it and given the dessert a twist by using just ice cream. Normally vanilla flavour ice cream is used, but I used fresh coconut ice cream and trust me it tasted heavenly. Since I am not fond of jelly, I skipped that too, but both milk and jelly cubes can be added.

Falooda is a version of noodles and it can be easily made at home with cornstarch but if you are lazy like me, use the ready pack which needs to be boiled and then cooled.

Once you have all your components ready it is a breeze to assemble the dessert, once done it takes only a few minutes to polish off that jar which has an explosion of textures and flavours.

I had made an Iftar Platter for September Mega Marathon and the Royal Falooda was one of the desserts that I served in it.

We are working on the A to Z series with Thali Recipes as my theme and Royal Falooda is my pick for the alphabet R.
