Falooda - My Version

Falooda is my favorite icecream to order whenever we dine out. I always wanted to post that recipe here in this blog. Before you guys look into the recipe, i want to warn you that this recipe is my version of making it. It is not the traditional falooda recipe. Because the traditional recipe calls for chia seeds, which i couldn't find it here. So please don't complaint me. This is how we make at home and everyone loves it. Once i can get my hands of those seeds, i will post the real version of it. 


For Jelly:
Instant Jello / Jelly Crystals - 1 packet
Water as needed

For Vermicelli:
Vermicelli - a handful
Water as needed

For Rosemilk:
Milk - 2 cups
Rose Essence - as needed
Sugar as needed

For Assembling:
Fruits - any of your choice(Mango, Pomegranate, Apple,Pineapple)
Icecreams - any of your choice( Strawberry, Vanilla)
