Faluda, often known as Falooda, is a traditional Indian cold dessert beverage that is popular in hot summers due to its cooling properties. It is a mixture of rose syrup, vermicelli, sweet basil (sabza) seeds with milk, topped off with a scoop of ice cream. Originating in Persia, the dish has evolved in the Indian subcontinent by adopting flavors and ingredients that are indigenous to the region. It's high in protein and is a good source of fiber.
