Mango Falooda

Mango falooda is a delicious multi-layered dessert with full-on mango flavor and many different textures in one. Actually this is a cross between drink and dessert. A must-make when mangoes are in season for mango lovers like me!

❤️About This Recipe

This is the variation of traditional rose-flavored falooda for mango lovers.

Easy to make: It looks like there are so many components for each and every layer. But trust me it is super easy to make and anyone can prepare this mango falooda with some prep work.

Little prep work required: Follow these tips and flow to make the prep work easy and it gets done in just 30 minutes (from prep to serving)

  • First, soak the sabja seeds. It takes 20 minutes of soaking time.
  • While seeds are soaking, cook falooda sev.
  • Also, make other elements ready like chopping mango, making mango puree (if making homemade), dissolve sugar in the milk.
  • Keep the serving glass ready.
  • Once all the elements are prepped just assemble and serve.

Ingredient Notes

  • Sabja seeds: It is also known as basil seeds or tukmaria. Looks like chia seeds, but they are different. In the absence of it, you can sure use chia seeds. You can soak it a day before and store it in the refrigerator.
  • Falooda sev: It is easily available in Indian grocery stores. You can see the sev packet in the step-by-step pics below for your reference.
  • Mango pulp: I have used fresh, ripe mangoes and blended them into the blender to make a pulp. If needed, add sugar while making pulp. Instead, you can use store-bought canned mango pulp that is available in Indian stores.
  • Milk: Full-fat whole milk is a must to get a rich, creamy texture.
  • Mango ice cream: Use homemade or store-bought. Instead, you can use vanilla ice cream. But I prefer mango to get the more intense flavor.

‍ Step By Step Photo Instructions

1) Take sabja seeds in a bowl and add ½ cup of water.

2) Let it soak for 20-30 minutes. They will get bigger and absorb most of the water. If there is any water then drain it.

3) Bring around 3 cups of water to a rolling boil in a saucepan for cooking falooda sev.

4) Add sev as soon as the water comes to a boil and cook for 4-5 minutes (or as per the package instructions). Drain the water and rinse the sev with cold water to stop the cooking process. Using kitchen scissors cut the sev into 1-inch pieces so it will be easier to eat with a spoon.

Also, do the following preps while seeds are soaking.

  • Add sugar into the milk and stir until sugar is dissolved. Instead, you can heat up the milk until sugar is dissolved. But you have do this step few hours earlier, so you can chill the milk before making mango falooda. So I prefer to add sugar (in powder form) to cold milk and mix.
  • Peel and cut the mangoes into cubes. Keep 1 cup of mango cubes and make a puree of rest.

5) Start assembling. Add a spoonful of soaked basil seeds and then a spoonful of cooked sev.

6) Add 2 tablespoons of mango pulp followed by a few mango pieces.

7) Repeat the same layers (seeds, sev, mango pulp) without mango pieces.

8) Add ½ cup of milk.

9) Top it with a scoop of ice cream.

10) Garnish with chopped nuts, some mango pieces and a mint leaf. Repeat the same for the rest 3 glasses.

Expert Tips

  • You may need to adjust the quantity of the ingredients depending on the size of the glass.
  • If you want to make a smaller serving size then do not repeat the layers. Just do one time only.
  • Chia seeds can be used instead of basil seeds. They have the same texture.
  • Do not overcook the falooda sev. The overcooked, mushy texture is not pleasant in the mango falooda.

Storage Instructions

  • Once assembled in the glass, mango falooda should be served right away.
  • You can prepare the different elements ahead of time (a day before) and store them in the refrigerator. The next day, you just have to assemble it.

How to make Mango Ice Cream

My wife likes to put me to work when it comes to the produce in the house. If she sees a sale that means I’ll be in the kitchen prepping it all for the freezer when she buys in bulk. We work as a team. She washes, I chop, she packs and freezes, I take the scraps to the compost.

To make our dairy free ice cream with ease we use a high speed blender, you could use a food processor as well, but the blender does the job like a pro for us. We love having our dessert in minutes. That’s the beauty of using real food, we don’t have to wait to churn anything, freeze it, we just enjoy whenever.

The reason we use the Vitamix blender for our ice creams is simple, it makes it easy. We love making this Vitamix ice cream and it’s easy to clean up too.

There are many high speed blenders on the market that can do a comparable job so it’s up to you to do your price matching and find one that fits your needs. For us, we wanted something that could make hot soups and ice creams without dairy.

Many like to make banana nice cream and it’s a delicious dessert just as well, but mangos, oh man.

Mangos are so creamy on their own and once you make them into their own ice cream your taste buds will be singing. Mix mangos and bananas together? You’ll start singing!

Dessert doesn’t need dyes or sprinkles, well unless you’re using chia seeds as sprinkles. You can get what you crave with stuff that’s grown from the ground. Just a little bit of effort on your part and this sweet healthy treat can be ready in just 3-5 minutes.

You can make this treat even easier by using store-bought frozen mango instead of buying, chopping and freezing yourself.
