Falooda Recipe

I dedicate this easy Falooda recipe, or Faluda recipe, to my friend and colleague at work. She is a tester in our company and lives in India. Because we both love food and cooking, we always discuss our cultures and traditions. As she is amazed by our food types, so am I fond of Indian food and cooking.

Falooda is a traditional and classic Indian beverage, or milkshake, as we would call it. In most cases, it is prepared with Falooda Sev, but I have adapted the recipe slightly, to make it easier, by replacing Falooda Sev with vermicelli. I did it because vermicelli is readily available from local supermarkets, and it reduces the time to prepare the Falooda recipe.

We are happy you are here and hope you will enjoy this Falooda recipe. Please tell us what you think of this recipe, or even better yet, take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom

Thanks and happy cooking.
