Rabdi Falooda – Rabri Falooda Recipe

Rabdi Falooda (or Rabri falooda) is a very popular North Indian dessert which can take the taste to a heavenly level. Chandi chowk area in Delhi serves best falooda. I am sharing the rabdi falooda recipe of this delicacy with you…the way I make it…

What is Rabdi falooda

Rabdi or rabri falooda is an Indian dessert from northern part of India. Its a cold dessert made using ice cream (ideally kulfi) , rabdi (thickened milk) and falooda. This used to be most loved traditional dessert during summer in India before fancy cold desserts came in market over time.

I remember growing up as kid in India and waiting for a street hawker in summer nights, shouting to buy falooda from him and I will wait for him, convincing my mum to buy this for my brother and I.


Now a mum and my love for rabri falooda is unfazed. I must also add that whenever I am in Delhi, I do not miss out on opportunity to visit chandni chowk to eat this falooda and other street food of India.

Making of rabdi falooda is not complicated. All you need is to make rabdi, rest of the steps are simple.

Ingredients for Rabdi Falooda

  • Rabdi / Rabri : Thickened milk is key ingredient for rabri falooda. You can make rabri in advance and keep it ready.
  • Falooda Sev : You can buy falooda sev from any Indian super markets. You may use vermicelli noodles too if you can’t get falooda sev.
  • Tukmaria Seeds : Also called basil or sabja seeds. These seeds adds to nice taste and texture to falooda.
  • Rose Syrup : Rabri falooda tastes great with rose flavour. You can use roohafjah or rose essence too.

Method

  • Soak tukmaria seeds in double the amount of water and falooda sev in 2.5 cup of lukewarm water for at least 30mins.

This Rabri Falooda Is

  • A great dessert on any Indian gathering.
  • Easy to assemble, as long as you have done basic preparation in advance.
  • A massive crowd pleaser. Who does not like ice-cream? This rabdi falooda has ice-cream and hence loved by all generes.
  • You can make it vegan too by using soy or almond milk. I have personally not made it vegan, I will update details here when I do so.

Serving suggestion

This dessert is best enjoyed in summer or sunny day. You can make rabdi in advance and serve this dessert cold by assembling it. Do not wait to serve after assembly as ice-cream / kufli will melt.

Pro Tips

  • You can use any sort of kulfi or ice-cream here, however malai kulfi tastes best. Second best is vanilla ice-cream.
  • Plan ahead and get rabdi ready in advance. Soak the seeds in advance too. Once rabdi is ready, assembling this Kulfi rabdi falooda is matter of minutes.
  • I am hesitant to say if its gluten-free. Lot depends on the falooda sev you use. Read the pack carefully to see if any wheat content or having any gluten source.
