Kulfi Falooda Sundae
2 teaspoons falooda seeds or takmaria (basil) seeds
8 ounces Chinese noodles or falooda sev
4 cups milk
4 to 6 tablespoons rooafzah syrup (available in any Indian food store)
1 quart kulfi
Chopped nuts, for garnish
Soak the falooda seeds in water for at least 1 hour. Set aside. Boil the noodles or falooda sev in water for about 15 minutes. Drain the water and add 2 cups of milk. Simmer over low heat for about 5 to 10 minutes until the noodles are soft. Immediately transfer the noodles to an ice bath to cool.
To assemble, set out 4 tall, clear glasses. To each, add a quarter of the noodles, 1 tablespoon rooafzah, 1/2 cup of milk, a quarter of the seeds and a little crushed ice. Stir. (Rooafzah is very sweet, so you don't need any additional sugar.) Top off the glass with 2 small scoops of kulfi and pour a little rooafzah along the sides. Garnish with chopped nuts.
