  • sabja seeds as required (sweet basil seeds or falooda seeds or tukmaria)
  • enough water to soak sabja seeds


  • Take the sweet basil seeds in a bowl. Pick up the chaff or husks or stones if there are any from them.
  • Pour water. remember to add enough water. Otherwise the soaked seeds become lumpy when they start swelling. They only absorb water as much as they required. So you can always add extra water to avoid the lumps being formed.
  • They will soon begin absorbing water.
  • Soak them for 30 minutes. Once they absorb the water, a translucent gelatin like coating is formed around them.
  • Strain and then use these soaked seeds in drinks, coolers, sherbets, ice creams, falooda or kulfis.
