Namaste Tarlaji,
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,

Dear Rajeshwari,

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).
