Rosy Pakistani Macaroni Dessert

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mandy

I recently purchased some "Rooh-Afza" or Rose Syrup in an Indian Grocers. I found a few recipes for it here on Zaar but this is one I found on a web search at It's quite different to any other dessert I've had but tasty. The recipe as written specified 6tsp of cardoman & 3 tblsp rose water but I didn't use anywhere near those amounts so feel free to adjust those 2 ingredients to your tastes

Yum! This made a lovely dessert. Reminded me of the falooda we eat back home in India. Apart from eating it with ice cream, we sometimes put falooda in our rose or pistachio milkshakes too. Will try the same with this recipe too. Thanks for posting!
