Mango falooda with kesar rabri mousse

Hello every one !!Feels like it's been ages since I last updated the blog.With a three month long summer vacation to the school we decided to spend quality time with family(ies) back home.And that was a good decision to escape from the horrendous heat wave experienced here.After being welcomed to a war prone home(looked from every angle as if it was affected)and a home sick mind lingering with the very thoughts of my parents and the chaos of the city,this calmness is just hounding me.I decided to just go with the flow and give my self and my body the time to heal.Did I miss the blog? To the core!!! Not only did I miss blogging but the "me time" that I get to channelise my creativity through my lens. 

And now that I am back into my shoes I am here with a easy peasy dessert which is a breeze to put up.Mango falooda with kesar rabri mousse is an absolute crowd pleaser.With the goodness of mangoes and fibre rich basil seeds this one tops up the list of desserts. Falooda is a layered Indian dessert which has its roots as far as Iran .Generally it is served on a bed of falooda sev (vermicelli) with generous amount of rabri(thickened milk) and topped with kulfi or vanilla ice cream .

The October heat is for real and we are still experiencing 40-45 c day temperature,which is the saddest part.Well, mangoes are off season in many parts including India.Fresh mangoes could easily substituted with tin mangoes.We are lucky to find some Thai and Australian mangoes in the market and are very pulpy and juicy.Do make an extra batch of this luscious dessert because I am sure there will be a request for a second serving.
