Rose Milk with Sabja/Tukmaria/Basil/Falooda seeds

Basil seeds aka Falooda seeds ~ I have never been familiar with these seeds until few summers back. To be precise, the summer that I got married. I was introduced to it by none other than my hubby. It was a Sunday, mid-Agni and we had booked movie tickets for a morning show. By the time we were back it was 12 in the noon and quite humid that we were sweating all over. We needed a drink and that is when the huss stopped by the soda factory that he has been visiting right from his school days. That was the first time that I had rose milk and I was given a large glassful of chilled rose milk with these seeds floating around. One mouthful and I really loved it and since then it has been soda factory rose milk whenever we pass that shop.

It was quite a summer this time with the mercury rising to 42C. And then there were showers, relieving showers. Just when I thought that the blazing summers had come to an end, it started again. Yes it is super hot in the morning and then we have cool showers in the evening. We needed cool, refreshing drinks to cope up with this two-faced weather and so I tried copy-cat-ing the soda factory rose milk for our brunch drink.

~*What U Need*~
Full Fat Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Water - 1/2 cup
Rose Syrup - 1 tsp
Rose water – ½ tsp
Sugar – 4 tbsp or to taste
Sabja seeds - 2 tsp soaked in water for 30mins

How I Made it:
Soak sabja seeds in little water for 30 minutes till soft and transparent. Blend the rest of the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving. When serving pour into glasses, top with soaked sabja seeds and serve...

Serve chilled always!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
