Falooda or Faluda is a popular beverage in South Asia made primarily by mixing rose syrup with vermicelli and tapioca seeds along with milk. This chilled drink-dessert is the perfect way to cool off in the summer heat. The seeds used in this falooda form an excellent intestinal cooling agent in the summer season…Especially in cases of hot flushes and heat related disorders.

I love this dessert and we used to engage in this tasty delight frequently to beat the hot humid climate of UAE. This can be easily made at home and hence we can save some pennies as they are mostly expensive to buy it outside…
