Most of last week was spent on making different types of Popsicle recipes. The kids wanted or rather preferred the home made pops instead of the store bought ones. The idea came from this recipe that Sharmi had posted a while back.The recipe is pretty simple but the result is so good!

Basil seeds are also called Subja seeds, sabja seeds, Takmaria seeds,thukamaria seeds etc and is one of the important ingredient of the famous Falooda.

Basil seeds are black in color, resembling black sesame seeds, only a little smaller.When soaked in water they ‘bloom’ and attain a jelly like structure and has a light crunch to it.They have no flavor of their own.

These seeds are said to aid weight loss, overcome skin infections and relieve stress. It is also a body coolant and hence added to a variety of beverages and consumed in summer.

  1. I remember making a similar popsicle once with chia seeds. This is perfect for this scorching summer..

  2. This popsicle reminds me of falooda. Falooda popsicle!! love the combo. I have never added sabja seeds to my popsicles. I am sure it would have been a nice textural element.

  3. we dont get rose milk essence here – only rose water but I do have some rose paste I had gotten from Southeast Asian market – Thai/Vietnamese I suppose I could try with that
