FALOODA SEV RECIPE
Corn flour is the only single ingredient that goes into this "falooda sev" recipe. If you don't count ice cubes and water as part of its ingredients, that is. A single ingredient recipe.
- 1 cup corn flour
- 3 cups water
- 1 tray ice cubes
- 3 cups chilled water
- 1 piping bag with small holed nozzle
Take corn flour in a bowl, add water and whisk it with a small hand whisk till it forms a lump-free slurry.
Heat the slurry in a pan, stirring continuously till thickened. It should be sufficiently thick, almost till a glue-like consistency.
Pour the gluey cooked mix into a piping bag bearing a nozzle with little holes, taking care to not scald your hands in the process.
Hold the piping bag over the chilled iced water and squeeze it gently but firmly to ooze out thin strings of the mixture into the water. Form circular movements with a steady squeeze, so as to allow for a formation of circular strands of “sev”.It takes a bit of dexterity to get strands of even thickness; the squeeze pressure makes a difference too apart from the nozzle hole. Rest assured that even broader/ flatter strings will do, as eventually, the sev is likely to be hidden from view among several other falooda ingredients in the glass.
The strands will appear semi-translucent, which is the way falooda sev has to be.
