How to Make Strawberry Falooda Step by Step at Home
How to Make Strawberry Falooda Step by Step at Home Yesterday was the auspicious festival of Rakshabandhan. Rakshabandhan is an Indian festival where every sister ties a decorative thread bracelet on her brother’s wrist and asks for his protection.
It is extremely hot here and to combat that and celebrate the special occasion, I made Falooda!
Both my kids love strawberries, so I made strawberry Falooda. It is a classic Indian Icecream drink , which almost everyone loves! It is quite filling due to the numerous ingredients present in it and quite versatile due to the fact that you can add whatever you have on hand. I have made it healthier by adding lots of fruits, chia and basil seeds. Check out the recipe below:
Servings: 6 tall ( 10 oz) glasses
Prep time: 20 mins
Cooling time: 3-4 hours
Total time: 3.5-4 hours
Milk: 1 liter ( 1000ml) Vermicelli: 1/4 cup Sugar: 1/4 cup Corn starch: 1/2 tsp Sabja/basil seeds: 1 tbsp Chia seeds: 1 tbsp Hershey’s Strawberry syrup: 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp for garnishing Cashew halves: 1 tbsp Walnut pieces: 1 tbsp Banana, peeled and chopped: 4-6 ( one per glass) Strawberries: 12, washed and chopped ( 2 per glass) Cherries: 6 ( one per glass for topping) Strawberry Icecream: 6 scoops ( one scoop per glass).
Warm the milk on the stove. Once warm, take one glass milk aside. Mix in strawberry syrup to half of that milk . Add it to the pot. In a separate cup, dissolve the corn starch in the other half of the milk. Add this to the pot with vermicelli, sugar & cashew pieces and boil it for 10-15 mins until the milk thickens slightly and the vermicelli is cooked.
Once slightly thick, turn off the flame. Add in the chia seeds. Stir well and keep it aside to cool down.
Once cooled, place it in the refrigerator atleast 3-4 hours to get cold. Then use as needed. It stays fresh for 3-4 days, so can be made ahead in case you are having a party.
Take a tall glass. Add 1 chopped banana & 2 chopped strawberries. Now pour the milk mixture until 3/4 full. Now add in a scoop of Icecream. Top it with walnut pieces, drizzle strawberry syrup and place a cherry on top.
