Malai Qulfi Falooda by Chef Shireen Anwar

Milk                                              1 liter or 4 1/2 cups
Sugar                                          1 cup
Tetra pack cream                      1 packet (or you can also use Malai 1 cup)
Khoya                                          250 gm or 1 pao
Bread slices                               2 large
Kewra water                               1 tsp

Ingredients for Falooda
Corn flour                                          1 cup
Water                                                 2 cup
Yellow color                                      a pinch (if you don’t want color don’t add it)
Almonds and pistachio sliced      1 tbsp

If khoya is not available, you can use full cream powder milk 1 cup, dilute this powder milk with some milk (save 1/2 cup milk from 1 liter), and then add it instead of khoya.

Method for Falooda:
-       Mix together corn flour, water and few drops Yellow color  in a pan, cook stirring till thick and glossy,(mixture will gather in center, will form a lump)
-       Remove and pour in a falooda mold, take very chilled water in a bowl, now press the mold over chilled water bowl, to get falooda strips, (dropping falooda in chilled water)

Falooda mold (mold also used for making nimco) can easily be purchased from Bori bazaar, in Karachi Pakistan. In America, Canada, it is available in Indian stores.
