kulfi falooda recipe with step by step photos – a rich and delicious summer dessert with kulfi and topped with falooda, sabja seeds, rose syrup and dry fruits. it is one of the popular summer dessert equally loved by kids and adults alike.
falooda and kulfi are popular in most regions of india. they are ideal for summers as they are cooling as well as delicious. but the combo of kulfi with falooda is to take these desserts to another level.
kulfi falooda is a delicious, cooling and filling dessert. i have also posted the step by step recipes of mango falooda and kesar pista falooda. the difference in kulfi falooda and regular falooda is that whereas regular falooda is a dessert drink made with or without ice cream. kulfi falooda is a frozen dessert, topped with falooda sev along with rose syrup and dry fruits.
falooda sev is corn starch vermicelli that is added in this dessert. just prepare the falooda sev as per the instructions on the pack.you can make the kulfi at home or buy from outside. i made kulfi falooda many times in this summer season with mawa kulfi and mango kulfi. you can also check no cook mango kulfi recipe.
soaked sabja seeds (sweet basil seeds) are also added to this dessert for their cooling nature. you can check this post on how to soak sabja seeds. apart from it, dry fruits make it more healthy and filling. one just needs to assemble everything.

note: recently i made kulfi falooda again. so updated the post with step by step pics. in the stepwise photos pista kulfi has been used instead of mango kulfi.
lets start step by step kulfi falooda recipe:
1. soak the sabja seeds/tukmaria seeds in enough water for about 30 minutes or more.
2. when the sabja seeds are soaking, begin to prepare the falooda sev as per the instructions given in the pack. i had to cook them in hot water.
3. cook till the sev softens.
4. now strain falooda sev and then rinse in running water. keep aside covered.
5. also strain the sabja seeds and keep aside.
6. take kulfi in a bowl. you can slice it into halve or small pieces. due to it being very hot here, the kulfi was melting. you can also add some malai if you want. now add the sabja seeds.
8. then add the falooda sev.
9. pour rose syrup.
10. garnish with chopped dry fruits.
11. serve kulfi falooda immediately.
