Faloodeh (Persian: فالوده, romanized: fālūde) or paloodeh (Persian: پالوده, romanized: pālūde) is a traditional Iranian cold dessert similar to a sorbet. It consists of thin vermicelli-sized noodles made from starch in a semi-frozen syrup containing sugar and rose water. Faloodeh is often served with lime juice and sometimes ground pistachios. In Iran, faloodeh is sold in ice cream stores and coffee shops in flavors such as pistachio, saffron, rosewater and honey, and can be served alongside bastani sonnati, a traditional Persian ice cream. Faloodeh Shirazi (Persian: فالوده شیرازی, romanized: fālūde Shirāzi), the version from the city of Shiraz, is particularly well-known.
