Falooda, whoever is from Chennai would surely tasted Hotel Saravana Bhavan’s falooda ice cream . Slurp… I love that. When I was pregnant for Janani, my hubby used to buy me twice a month. I simply love that. We have shifted to Thiruvanmiyur now, no saravanabhawan is near here, I miss their food and especially falooda.

I read this recipe in a Tamil magazine, Veg falooda sounded interesting. when I was copying in my recipe note book, janani asked when you will make this for me, at last I made it last week. I made some changes according to kids taste buds, my convenience.The recipe had asked for making rice sevai, by making idly from par boiled rice mixture and make sevai out of it. I have used ready to cook sevai.


Cabbage – grated 1/2cup
Capsicum – small 1 (finely chopped)
Carrot grated – ½ cup
Ready to make sevai – 1 cup
Tomato – 3 to 4
Pepper powder – 1 tbsp or as per taste
Salt to taste
Corn flour – 1 tsp
Milk – ½ cup
Fried corn flakes – few for garnishing
Oil as required


1. Boil water and add the sevai and drain the excess water and keep aside.
2. Heat oil in a kadai and saute the vegetables by adding salt and pepper as per taste.( the recipe asked for steaming the vegetables)
3. Make a puree of tomatoes. In a bowl mix corn flour and milk.
4. In a pan pour the puree and boil it, when the tomatoes are cooked , add the milk mixed with corn flour.
5. Add salt and pepper as per taste. When it has come to soup consistency, switch off the gas.

How to serve.

1. Take a tall glass and spread the steamed vegetables as a first layer.
2. Over the vegetables spread sevai.
3. Pour the tomato soup on the top and garnish with fried corn flakes.

I have served my Lil one in a bowl.
