i’m on your blog for the first time. the cooler looks really COOL,but i don’t know what falooda seeds are. where can i get them,thanks,
Thank you for the appreciation. Falooda seeds/ Subza (Garden cress seeds) is a type of seed that is locally available. It is black in colour almost the size of sesame seeds (til).
It just needs to be soaked for 1 hour in water before using it in recipes. It soaks water and swells a little. You can add it to milkshakes, falooda, sherbets or can make kheer or porridge out of it.
You can see falooda seeds floating in the citrus cooler (displayed image).
I came by your blog by accident, and coincidentally, I wrote an article about you in my own blog today!! http://funnfud.blogspot.com/2007/08/tarla-dalal-indian-food-queen.html
I love and respect u a lot. thanks for being an inspiration to all of us. pls visit my blog and comment on something if you can spare some time
grapefruit mint chia cooler
This is an easy nutrient packed summertime drink that is perfect for those hot Summer days.
- 3 pink grapefruits
- 2 limes
- 1 Tablespoon Organic Chia Seed
- 1-2 tablespoons Organic Coconut Sugar
- 5 mint leaves, chopped
1. Let your chia seeds plump up in 2 cups of water and set aside.
2. Juice the grapefruits and limes into a quart mason jar. If you’re wanting this to be on the sweeter side, or have tart grapefruits, add in the coconut sugar to taste.
3. Add in the 2 cups of water with the chia seeds to the citrus juice jar and fill with water until full, just below the lip. Close with a lid and shake well to mix. At this point, you could pour the cooler over ice and enjoy immediately, or let it chill in the fridge for later.
4. When serving, garnish with mint leaves a slice of lime or with a grapefruit rind.
