Faloodeh is one of the earliest known frozen desserts, dating to ca. 400 BC in Persia. This version is particularly associated with the city of Shiraz, while other variations exist across the Middle East, India, and Pakistan. The sweetly scented ice has the consistency of a granita or slush with the added texture of chewy noodles made from rice or corn starch. It’s a unique combination and wonderfully sensory eating experience.
