Basic Strawberry Falooda

16th recipe in the 50 shades of summer series.

So, I spent almost all of last week at my cousin’s place. The poor thing had surgery and has to stay in bed for 3 weeks. On the last day before I came home I decided to make falooda for them.

My cousins were quite happy with how it came out and I think that is enough proof for this to have it’s very own post on the blog. This time I not only raided my aunt’s kitchen but took over it completely.

So, my aunt and I have one thing in common, our love for beautiful glassware and china. All the beautiful glassware used in the pictures are all my aunts, which is what made shooting these pictures a lot more fun 🙂

This is a very basic version of the falooda, it normally contains jelly and sometimes fruits as well.

    Assembling a falooda


  • I have used a flat bowl just to show the assembling process more clearly. A falooda is normally served in a tall glass.
