During our time doing markets and demos, we’ve had a few of you come up and tell us that you use our Rose Syrup to make an Indian dessert called Falooda. After doing some research, we decided to give it a try and we hope you feel inspired to try it for yourself for a unique and floral treat!
PREP: 15 MINS // YIELD: 2 SERVINGS
Soak chia seeds in a glass of water in the refrigerator for a couple hours or until seeds get gelatinous, then pour off any remaining water. In the meantime, heat milk and sugar to a boil then reduce to simmer for 5-7 minutes then refrigerate to cool. Cook vermicelli noodles according to package then once you drain the water off noodles, run under cool water and cut into approximately 1 inch pieces. Once the above steps are complete, you’re ready to assemble! This recipe makes two servings so get out two glasses and assemble each as stated below. Add a heaping tablespoon of chia seeds to the bottom of a glass, then add about 1/4 c of cooked vermicelli noodles, then add 1 tbsp Rose Syrup. Add in about 1/4-1/2 c sweetened milk then top with a scoop of ice cream. Top with garnishes if you desire and enjoy immediately!
Traditionally Falooda is made with Basil Seeds but for the sake of making this recipe as assessable as possible, we used chia seeds as they offer a similar texture. Recipe is heavily adapted from https://spiceupthecurry.com/falooda-recipe/
