Falooda or Faluda (Urdu: فالودہ ) is a popular beverage in the Indian subcontinent made primarily by mixing rose syrup with
vermicelliand tapiocaseeds along with either milk or water. In addition to these basic ingredients, basilseeds ("sabja/takmaria"), tutti frutti, sugar, and ice cream may be added. The vermicelli used is often made from arrowrootrather than wheat. The rose syrup may be substituted with another flavoured base to produce kesar ( saffron), mango, chocolate, and fig Falooda.Falooda is thought to be an adaption of the Persian dessert " faloodeh" and was brought to the surrounding Middle Easterncountries and South Asiaby Muslimtravellers and merchants.
Falooda is a popular summer drink throughout
North India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Middle Eastcountries and is readily available in hotels and on beachstalls. A variant is "falooda kulfi", where falooda and kulfiare served together with a syrup.
It is very similar to the Thai drink
nam manglak, which is made from basil seeds mixed with sugar, water, and rose water. The Iraqi Kurds also have their own version; but made with thicker vermicelli.
