Faloodeh, originally Paloodeh or Pālūde (Persian: پالوده‎) is an Iranian cold dessert consisting of thin vermicelli noodles made from corn starch mixed in a semi-frozen syrup made from sugar and rose water. It is often served with lime juice and sometimes ground pistachios. It is a traditional dessert in Iran. Paloodeh is originally from Shiraz and in Iran it is especially famous as Shirazi Faloodeh.[1]

Paludeh is one of the earliest forms of cold desserts, existing as early as 400 BCE.[citation needed] The name originally means smoothy (filtered). In Iran, faloodeh is sold in ice cream stores (bastani) and in shops which specialize in preparing this dessert.[2]


A thin wheat starch batter is pressed through a sieve which further produces delicate strings. These strings look like grated coconut. Cold milk with blended almonds and pistachios, and then cooled.[3]
