F - Faloodo /Indian Frozen Desert served with Vermicelli


BM # 63
Day : 6
Theme: Regional Cuisine 
Cuisine : Sindhi

Falooda is my pick with the alphabet 'F' in our Journey through the Cuisines. We Sindhi's pronounce it Faloodo, emphasizing on O.

Falooda originally comes from Persia, and I was surprised to read that it is popular in many countries, each having a version of their own. In India itself we have many versions . The famous Kulfi Falooda is served with a rich frozen Indian ice cream. Serve it with Pista Kulfi, Badaam Kulfi, Kesar Pista or any other variation, the variety is endless. Next comes the Rabri Falooda and let me not forget The Royal Falooda, which is more like a drink.

The Falooda is basically vermicelli made with corn starch. These are pretty transparent thread like noodles, though to make them attractive they are dyed yellow or pink.

This is a dessert that the Sindhi's make for formal dinners or serve it at weddings.
The Sindhi version has Kulfi, Faloodo,crushed ice, rabri , rose syrup and finally topped with crushed nuts.Some add jelly cubes to this Faloodo. So here is the Sindhi version of Faloodo.

I am also linking this as my Day 6 post for A-Z Challenge.
