Here is an ideal  Iced Faluda drink for  a picnic  on a sunny , warm day.

This is a special home made Faluda,  which is very healthy and cools the body with two special ingredients called china grass and  and Tukmaria.I think Tukmaria is basil seed.Please Google and find out the name in your language.

China grass (agar agar) is from  sea weeds, and Tukmaria  is an edible vegetable seed.There is white Tukmaria too.So far I have not come across the white Tukmaria.

I remember my mum making this drink for us in the good old days.Specially when it is very warm .Infact now I continue making this drink rather than having Cola Pepsi sprite etc etc  which is not good for our health.

1.Cut china grass in to small pieces and soak them in 1/4 to 1/2 cup water over night.

2. Cook this  on slow fire until it dissolves.You must have a little bit patience, because it takes time to dissolve.

Step 3:

1.When it dissolves divide in to two or three portion , add your choice of food colouring,and  pour it on to a flat  plate. You have to act fast on this step as the liquid tends to get  hard like gelatine.
I did not dissolve fully because I was running out of time.That's why you see little pieces.

2.Within a couple of minutes it will set. As an example I have showed you the china grass in the  plate in a slanted position. This will not fall off the plat once it sets.

3.Chop them in to small cubes set as side.
