Persian Faloodeh Recipe

Faloodeh is one of the most classic and ancient Persian desserts, beloved by everyone in Iran. It has been said that this dessert was the first frozen dessert ever made -dating from around 400 BC- based in Shiraz, a beautiful city in the east of Iran. This is why we call the dessert faloodeh shirazi. Shiraz has various types of flavorful food, such as Kalam polo and Albaloo polo, along with tasty desserts like Masghati.

Faloodeh consists of semi-frozen rice noodles with a sweet and sour taste, punctuated by the floral notes of rosewater. It has a unique texture that dissolves magically on your tongue. I promise you that it is not similar to any other dessert you have tried before. After following our faloodeh recipe, you will have found your exceptional dessert for hot summer days! Try it with fresh lime juice and enjoy the flavors. In Iran, people serve faloodeh with Persian saffron and pistachio ice cream called Bastani Sonati, and these two make an excellent combination. However, faludeh is considered a perfect dessert by itself. Thus, let’s go to our falooda noodles recipe without further ado.
