Faloodeh (Persian: فالوده Fālūde) or Paloodeh (Persian: پالوده Pālūde) is an Iranian cold dessert popularly known as "Persian noodle dessert" in the Western countries. It consists of thin vermicelli-sized noodles mixed in a semi-frozen syrup made from sugar and rose water that is similar to a sorbet. The noodles are made from either potato starch, corn starch, rice starch or arrowroot starch. Often served with lime juice and sometimes ground pistachios, it is a traditional dessert in Iran.
In Iran, Faloodeh is sold in ice cream stores (Persian: بستنی فروشی bastani forushi) and coffee shops and can be served along side Persian-style dairy-based ice cream in flavors such as pistachio, saffron, rosewater and honey.
In the 16th to 18th century, Mughal kings who ruled India and the Indian subcontinent, and they created a cold dessert beverage called Falooda which has origins from the earlier popularity of Iranian Faloodeh.The dynasty was Indo-Persian in culture, combining Persianate culture with local Indian cultural influences visible in its traits and customs.
The word Paloodeh is from the verb Paloodan (Persian: پالودن) which means to refine in the Persian language. Faloodeh is the Arabicized form of Paloodeh, subsequent to Arab conquest of Iran, due to a lack of the phoneme /p/ in Standard Arabic (i.e., the /p/ was replaced with an /f/).
A thin batter (consisting of potato starch, arrowroot starch, corn starch or rice starch) is pressed through a sieve which further produces delicate strings, which look similar to cellophane noodles, and are then chilled in ice water. Afterwards, they are added to the syrup mixture and rapidly cooled until the syrup is at least half-frozen.
