 – 2 tablespoonsFalooda Sev 
– handfulRose Syrup
 – 2 tablespoonsIce cream

 – few, for garnishing (optional)


Soak basil seeds in the water for at least 30 minutes. After 30 minutes drain them.Meanwhile take and sugar in the pan. Let it come to a boil on medium heat. And then lower the heat and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes. Then chill it in the refrigerator. Milk becomes little thick.Make the falooda sev as per package instruction. How I did – take some water in a pan, let it come to a rolling boil. Add falooda sev, let it cook for 4-5 minutes. Drain it and rinse it with cold water immediately to stop further cooking. using kitchen scissors, cut them into approx 1 inch pieces, so it will easier to eat later.Now everything is ready, soaked basil seeds, chilled milk and sev. Let’s assemble the falooda.Take two glasses. Add basil seeds to it.Then on top add cooked falooda sev.Then add 1 tablespoon of rose syrup in each glass.Pour the milk in it. Some basil seeds will float on top.Then add a scoop of ice cream.Garnish it with chopped pistachios and rose petals.Serve immediately.

Taste – Sweet, cooling with rose flavors
Shelf life – must be served immediately. But you can prepare different elements (like soaking basil seeds, boiling milk, cooking sev) ahead of time. Keep it refrigerated and assemble right before serving.
