Lemon juice or cherry syrup or rosewater or any kind of syrup to the desired amount
To make Shirazi faloodeh, you must follow the following steps:
First, pour water and sugar into the pot and put it on a gentle heat to boil. Then add the sugar little by little to the water and stir with a spoon until the sugar dissolves in the water. When the sugar dissolves in the water, do not stir it anymore. Wait a little while for the syrup to thicken.
Add rosewater to the syrup and stir a little. After 5 minutes, turn off the flame, pour the syrup into a metal bowl, and wait a while for the syrup to cool. Then put it in the freezer for 4 to 5 hours to freeze. After the syrup has frozen, take it out, mix it with a fork, and return it to the freezer.
Pour two glasses of water into the pot and put it on a gentle heat.
Add the farina to the water and stir until it solidifies and forms a paste. Then wait a while for the water to evaporate and the farina to thicken. In this case, the starch should be slightly stretched.
Now take a bowl and put pieces of ice in it. Then place a colander on the bowl. You can use a pipette instead of a colander.
While the dough is hot, pour it into the colander and press it with a spoon until the dough passes through the colander holes and falls on the ice cubes. Then turn the noodles upside down with a spoon so that they do not tightened fully.
Add farina to the syrup
Now take the syrup that you put in the freezer out of the freezer and pour it in the bowl. Pour the farina noodles into this bowl and mix well with the syrup.
Now your Faloodeh is ready and you can taste it with lemon juice, cherry syrup, rosewater or any flavor you like.
Faloodeh is found in most cities in Iran.
