Falooda Recipe

Falooda.. :) I just love to eat it .. n make it ! I love to have Falooda as my first recipe in this blog for many reasons . One being me n my hubby love it and the other being it is an all time favorite for kids .

Lets start with the ingredients :
Corn Flour – 2 cups
Jelly Packet – 1
Sugar – 1 cup
Sabjja Seeds – 2 Tables spoons
Food Colors ( Pink / Red ) - A pinchHoney
Red Berries – 3 to 4
Vanilla Ice Cream
Gulkand ( optional )

1. Soak the sabjja seeds for about 2 hours in a cup of cold water.
2. Prepare the Jelly as mentioned in the packet. Empty the contents of the Jelly Powder to a 400ml vessel.
3. Boil hot water and add it to the Jelly Powder. Mix until the powder dissolves. Allow it to cool down for about 2 hours and then place the set jelly in the fridge .
4. Mix one and a half cup of water to 2 cups of corn flour. Heat the above mixture for about 5 minutes. The mixture starts becoming a glossy paste.
5. Take it out of the vessel and put the contents in the murrukku achu/presser/mould with small holes and start pressing. The corn flour noodles should be spread on a plate containing ice cubes. This would make the corn noodles hard and nice to eat .
6. Allow it to cool for about 10 min. Please note that the corn flour mixture should be made immediately once the mixture thickens else it would turn to very hard .
7. Take a cup of sugar and put in a kadai and start heating with ½ cup of water. The mixture should decrease in quantity and it should be a little sticky with all sugar dissolved. Switch of the stove and add the food color. Allow this to come to room temperature and then keep it inside the fridge.

So Let's Eat..

Hungry is it? and you are in Bangalore.
Dont worry madko bedi. Enjoy Maadi... ( The only two kannada type sentences NK folks try talking).
Chinthe beda. Adige ready agidhe is as we would mention it.

We are people who love some real goooooooood food...
whether at home or outside, day or night, exotic or traditional, chinese or pizza, south india or north indian..

Proud to get the recipe from Old Grandma ..
Exciting to download from the New Internet..Try it out and see how it boils out from your kitchen.
The office lunch group/guests gets to taste it and appreciative( some egoistic :-) ) of the culinary skills .
Husband hogging with content and happiness.. All this is great to see.

As mentioned before,, when you in Bangalore and exhausted with lots of work or need to try something new.
Just pick out the car or the phone. Pizza at your doorstep or drive into thindi beedhi.
Enough to increase the concavity of the tummy and convexity of the eyelids.. Eat Heavy and Sleep Tight.

Thot of pumping in these thots about the food we try cooking and eating in this hogging phase of our life.

Giving a preface or a start with this small blog will hand it over to my sweeter half (wife) to do more of the talking.
Ofcourse recipes and the experiences to follow from here. Health Titbits and review of eateries as add on.

So Let's Eat..
And Yeah.. don't miss two main ingredients in food -- pinch of salt and lots of love..
