Chilled Kesar Pista Falooda / Saffron Pistachio Falooda is the Ultimate soul satisfying dessert in summer. Flavourful thick milk , vermicelli , soaked Basil Seeds topped with exotic Kesar Pista Ice Cream and Dry fruits , isn’t it mouthwatering????

One can prepare in advance , and just assemble , topped with ice cream and dry fruits at time of serving. Definitely it’s a show stopper. Best option to serve in a party or get together.

Having Falooda in dessert , is the most loved thing in summer for the whole family.. I have already posted ROSE FALOODA , which is also one of the best desserts one can have during summer. Do checkout that recipe too.

The important thing about this homemade Floods is ..

  • It’s very easy to make
  • No artificial flavour or colour added.
  • Best quality ingredients are used.
  • Very Cost Efficient



Here , I have used Wheat Vermicelli for Homemade Falooda. You can use the Falooda Sev too. To make at home is also very easy. But , for me this vermicelli version is perfect πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹… I have directly added in milk . One van keep it separate and just assemble at time of serving.


Basil / Sabja Seeds adds amazing taste to Falooda and more than that it has much more health benefits too. Basil seeds can be useful for Weight loss , hair loss , skin issues , acidity , diabetes etc etc.


Prefer full fat cream… As the creamy texture tastes good. One can add little custard powder for lovely taste..


Garnishing Falooda is very much needed. One can Garnish with Ice cream , tutti-frutti , glazed cherry , lots of dry fruits , some flavoured syrup etc.

Note ::

  1. I have not added Pistachio at time of boiling milk as I love the crunchiness of it. If you wish , you can add. Add 4 tbsp chopped pistachio .
  2. One can add 1 tsp of Custard Powder in the Milk. If adding , reduce the boiling time else it will be very thick.
  3. One can make ready in advance. But after assembling , serve immediately..
  4. One can store in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

    The overflowing falooda looks inviting and am sure is perfect for the summer. The sabja seeds and the falooda semiya is my personal fetish and can imagine how beautiful it will be with your recipe.
