Mango Falooda | How to make Mango Falooda at home

Mango Falooda, a delicious and layered summer dessert prepared from mango puree, mango icecream, sweetened milk, sabja seed, falooda sev and nuts. Though I have heard about falooda drinks a lot and how delicious it is, I never had a chance to try this at any restaurant or sweet shops in India.

So all the falooda drinks that i have tasted so far are only homemade by me :-), So can't compare this with the store bought, but i can assure you that it's one of the delicious drinks i have tasted so far. 
As sabja seed is a natural coolant, having it during summer really helps to cool your body. so there are a lot of drinks prepared using these seeds during summer in North India. As a South Indian, I don't know much about this seeds' benefits for a very long time.Thanks to the blog world, I got introduced to these wonderful seeds and now I'm using it in my drinks especially during summer.

Now coming to today's falooda recipe, it looks like a lot of steps to make this delicious drink, but you can prepare all the ingredients ahead and put it in refrigerator, so it will be easy to put together everything when you need.If you're a adherent fan of mangoes like me, then you must try this falooda on this summer or when mangoes are in season.

  • Depends on the sweetness of mango, you can add more or less of sugar in mango puree.
  • As i don't have falooda sev, i have used vermicelli, if you have falooda sev, then use it.
  • I have used pistachios here for garnishing, but you can use any nuts or cheery for garnishing.
  • Taste best when serve chilled, so keep all the ingredients in the refrigerator for minimum 30 mins  before serving.
  • As per your liking and preference, you can add more or less of all ingredients and also you can assemble the glass as per your order.
