Falooda filling


Place the sabja seeds in the water and allow to bloom while you make the falooda – around 15 minutes.


Combine the ice cream, cream cheese and milk together in a blender. Add icing sugar and lemon juice to taste.

To serve


Pour rose water into the bottom of the glass and slowly pour ice-cream filling into glasses, leaving 5 cm from the top.


Top with soaked sabja seeds, Turkish delight, toasted vermicelli, dehydrated strawberries and chopped pistachios.


Soaked/boiled falooda can also be used in the recipe. Follow package instructions.
