a poster by the name of rworange was asking about falooda over on the general topics board. here's a recipe that my family uses. my aunt makes the noodles ahead of time and puts them in glasses along with the rooh afza and the basil seeds (or fish eyeballs as my sister and i referred to them in our youth!). doing that ahead of time does make the noodles hard, though. also, the milk should be cooked down a little bit:


2 & 1/2 cups [ 575 ml ] cold milk
6 tbsps rose syrup or Rooh Afza
3 tbsps tulsi (basil) seeds, soaked for 4/5 hours
4 heaped tbsps granulated sugar
3 scoops vanilla ice-cream
1 & 1/2 heaped tbsps cornflour
2 cups [425 ml] water
1 & 1/4 cups [275 ml ] ice water

Mix together cornflour and water and cook over low heat,
stirring constantly until it begins to look transparent.
Place the mixture into a colander, place it over the pan
containing ice water. Now with the back of wooden spoon
press the mixture through. The pieces will fall into the
ice water and solidify. Keep aside for 30 minutes, then
strain. Heat milk and sugar and chill. Place 2 tsps of
tulsi seeds, 2 tbsps cornflour falooda, in the bottom of
each glass. Add rose syrup and crushed ice. Pour in the
cold milk. Place a scoop of vanilla ice‑cream on top.
