Faloodha at Scoop
The first term mid term break came during the last week of March. We didnt go anywhere out of Male' City as it was just a week's break and hubby had work. So I decided to take my boys and my niece to check out the National Museum ( post to follow soon). The Museum opens at 10 and we reached there a bit early so headed off to Scoop to grab something nice and cold to drink as it was a hot day.
Scoop is this old little cafe' in Male' City. Its situated in Chandhanee Magu in front of Iskandhar school. Its been there since I remember. This little shop sells local snacks such as rolls, cutlets, bajiya , and sandwiches and of course lots of ice creams. But we were not there for that , we wanted some of their famous Faloodha
This sweet concotion probably made its way from India as I have seen Faloodha recipes from some of the blogs. Anyway Faloodha is cold drink made with rose syrup mixed with condensed milk and water. Its is made by adding tiny bits of jelly and basil seeds , which had been soaked for several hours in water so they have this jelly like membrane around them, into the rose syrup mixture. Finally its topped off with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The price has hiked a bit though ,but the taste still remains the same.
