Mango Falooda

Falooda is one of the popular cool dessert in India. Mango Falooda is made with milk, mango, home made strawberry jelly, sabja seeds flavored with Rrooh Afza and khus syrup. I have used rose syrup flavored falooda sev, and you can find at any Indian store if you do not want to make it at home. Mango falooda is a refreshing dessert during the summer and really rich.
