Pista Falooda ( with mint tea )

Frankly speaking I had never thought of making any thing other than tea with flavoured tea leaves. But when I saw the ingredients of this months magic mingle I was puzzled and at loss as to what type of dish can be made with that combination of tea leaves and pistachios . Then I came across Priyas dish and was really really impressed by the innovative dish .
Here in Mumbai it is very hot with temperatures as high at 40 degrees and so I had planned to make falooda at night . I suddenly had the idea of trying it with mint flavoured tea leaves and pistachios and the end result was unbelievably delicious........ . Make this delicious cooling and refreshing drink to enjoy it ....






Ingredients :

100 gm ...................Falooda sevaiyyan packet
3 to 4 tbsp.................Sabja seeds
3 to 4 tbsp..................milk powder
2 tbsp .......................mint tea leaves
 2 tbsp.....................pistachio slivers
2 tbsp......................cashews pieces
8 to 10.....................big black currants
 2 drops .................green colour
1 litre .......................milk
3/4 cup ...................sugar
1 small pack ...............vanilla icecream ( I used amul brand)


Method :

Boil 150 ml water and mint tea leaves and let it boil till all the essence comes in the water.
Strain this water , add to it sevaiyyan and sabja seeds and let them cook for 15 minutes more.
Add sugar, cashews and green colour and cool it in the fridge.
Boil milk and add the milk powder to thicken it a bit , cool this too in the fridge.
At the time of serving spoon 2 to 3 tbsp of savayyan sabja  mixture in glasses .
Add the cold milk, add a scoop of icecream .
Sprinkle pistachios and few mint tea leaves on top for decoration.
This icy mint tea flavoured falooda was just mind blowing .
