Kesar Pista Falooda recipe is one of the many variations of the Indian falooda drink which is commonly served as a desert or even with some Indian dishes. It has its own flavorful taste and can be somewhat compared to a milk shake but is alot different in my ways as well.
This specific Indian falooda recipe is centered around the flavors of pistachio and saffron. It makes great for a hot summer dessert and for those of you who are still experiencing this major heat wave why not make it!
Now we will go ahead and start this simple recipe!
The first thing we want to do is soak the falooda seeds in about 3/4 cup of water for a good 30 minutes and let them et soft. After we soak the seeds what we want to do is strain the seeds with a tea strainer and keep them aside.
Next we have to get ready the 3 tablespoons of the falooda sev. Depending on which kind of falooda sev you got follow the preparation steps on the packet. Many ask you to just soak in warm water while others might ask you to put them in boiling water like noodles.
Crush your pistachios and grind them with a mortar and pestle.
take about 1 cup of milk in a small pan or sauce pan and add to this sugar, ground pistachios, and the strands of the crushed saffron.
Now we want to put up the heat on the stove on a medium heat and simply simmer on a low flame. For the milk we don’t want to boil it it is just a nice simmer so the milk can absorb all the flavors. Once it is done and you can smell the flavors absorbed in the milk turn of the stove and pour the milk out and let it cool. We want to cool it completely. You can also refrigerate it.
After the milk is cooled we will pour the milk into glasses and get them ready for serving.
In each glass we will add about a tablespoon of falooda seeds or less. A few ice cubes. In each glass for serving add about 1/2cup of the cooked milk from the above steps.
Then we will add to it the falooda sev. and on top of this you can add vanilla ice-cream. On top of the ice cream scoop you can add crushed or chopped pistachios for garnishing and more falooda seeds if you desire.
