Falooda Dessert Recipe

Looking for a delicious and refreshing dessert that's perfect for the summer? Look no further than Falooda! This popular Indian dessert, particularly in Northern India, is not only tasty, but also helps cool down your body with the addition of ice cream and basil seeds. Plus, you can customize it with your favorite fruits for a dessert that your kids are sure to love!

To make my favorite Falooda Dessert Recipe, start with falooda sev or vermicelli. You can even use leftover sago vermicelli payasam for a unique twist. Add basil seeds, which are known for their cooling properties, and your favorite fruits. And of course, top it all off with a scoop of ice cream!

If you're looking for a variation, try adding cooked sago instead of vermicelli. This version is sure to be a hit with your kids! And if you already have basil seeds at home, this is the perfect way to use them up.
