Faloodeh (Persian: فالوده Fālūde‎‎) or Paloodeh (Persian: پالوده Pālūde‎‎) 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 (Persia). Paloodeh is originally from Shiraz and it is also known as Shirazi Paloodeh.[1]

The name originally means smoothy (filtered) in Persian language. In Iran, Paloodeh is sold in ice cream stores (Persian: بستنی فروشی) (Bastani Forooshi) and coffee shops.[2]

Preparation[edit]

A thin wheat starch batter is pressed through a sieve which further produces delicate strings, which look similar to cellophane noodles, and are then chilled in ice water.[3] Afterwards, they are added to the syrup mixture and rapidly cooled until the syrup is at least half-frozen.
