Falooda / Faluda



Falooda / Faluda is a cold dessert / drink popular in the Indian sub continent. Traditionally it is prepared by mixing rose syrup, cooked vermicelli (falooda sev), soaked basil seeds/ tukhmaria/sabja, jelly pieces with some lightly sweetened milk. I have adopted a layer approach and layered the different ingredients (nuts, rose syrup, soaked basil seeds, noodles,jelly pieces and milk) and finally topped with a scoop of ice cream:) It  is perfect during hot summer days:)

Orange glow : Orange juice and Grenadine mocktail


I recently came back from my great vacation to Miami and Key West. The temperature was so high, hot and muggy that we drank so many different types of juices and mocktails. Most commonly we would enjoy lemon mojitos (non alcoholic kind) and Pina coladas. There was this place ,a cuban joint close to the place where we stayed. I had an amazing drink there which was not only beautiful but tasted awesome too. The colors in the drink orange and dark pink blended so well..it was truly  a visual treat:) But sadly I was so busy enjoying with my family that I never got around to asking the recipe. It was only the day we were about to leave that it struck to me to ask the recipe but I was pressed for time:(

Today, I am sharing a drink which is as pretty as the drink that I had in Miami but the flavors are slightly different. This drink calls for a combo of orange juice and grenadine syrup. Grenadine syrup is a syrup prepared by heating a mixture of pure pomegranate juice and sugar until it slightly thickens.
