For the last day of Parsi recipes I made Falooda with store bought kulfi and Falooda noodles. I had planned to make the kulfi and noodles at home but couldn't find time for the same. I also do not have tall glasses to serve and click good pictures. This is what you face when you move in a new apartment with empty kitchen .
Hopefully I will make it again soon with good props and all.
Till then indulge in this simple and easy kulfi Falooda and enjoy the summers. So let's start the recipe.yum

1/2 cup Rabri
2 tablespoon Falooda noodles
1 tablespoon rose syrup(I used rose essence )
2 scoops kulfi /vanilla ice-cream
1 teaspoon basil seeds
Pistachios to garnish

Cook flood noodles as per instructions on package.
Wash and soak basil seeds in 1/2 cup water and set aside.
In a glass ,add basil seeds and Falooda.
Then add rabri , rose essence and pistachios.
Top up with sliced kulfi or scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Serve chilled.


Serve-2. Prep time-10 minutes

Last week we moved to Florida from Ireland and that was the reason I was not blogging for some time. After a long time I am back in blogging. It's been a week here and I am too tired from this long exhausted trip and making efforts to arrange my pantry .But still I had to start from somewhere. So I decided to kickoff again from a sweet ,chilled and refreshing dessert.
