The best way to welcome summer is to enjoy a chilled glass of Mango Falooda. It like a tall glass of dessert lasagna. The Indian version of tiramisu!!

Ingredients

Preparation Method

The first step is to soak 2 teaspoons of sabja seeds in 8 teaspoons of water for 20-30 minutes. Drain the excess water. Dissolve the arrowroot powder in the milk and and allow it to boil on medium flame, while stirring constantly.

Continues the process for 5-7 minutes until the raw smell of arrowroot powder goes away. Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature, add the honey and allow it to chill for 1 -2 hours. In a separate pan put 2 to 3 cups of water to boil. Add the saffron strands to it. Add the vermicelli and allow to cook for 4 to 5 minutes till it becomes soft.

Transfer the cooked falooda sev into a strainer and drain all the excess water from it, add a cup of cold water to ensure that the falooda strands don’t become sticky. The saffron would have given a nice yellow color to the strands.
