  2. Water melon - 1 cup
  3. Chikku (sapota) - 1/2 cup

  8. Milk - 4 cups
  9. Cashew - 4
  10. Almond - 4
  11. Honey - 1 tbsp
  12. Diet coke or Pepsi - 1 tbsp
  13. Ice cream - (your favorite flavour) - 3 scoop
First soak, cashew and almonds in water for 15 to 20 mts. Peel off the skin from almonds and grind them into fine paste. Add this paste to milk and boil the milk for 10 mts. Let it cool. Now take the roasted vermicelli, add required amount of water, microwave it for 3 to 4 mts. till it is fully cooked. Keep it aside. Take a bow, mix all the fruits and keep it aside

Now take a serving glass(big) for falooda, put 1 tbsp cooked vermicelli first, on top of it add 1 tbsp of fruits. Now on top of it add one scoop of ice cream.

Now pour the diet coke or pepsi from the side of the tumbler, till it reaches the end. Enjoy the simple falooda.

Note:- the above given quantity of fruits and milk will be enough for 5 people. Just add the quantity of ice cream, vermicelli and coke according to the wish of the individuals.
