Sri lankan falooda

I know two types of falooda one is the sri lankan one and the other is bombay version, am not quiet sure of the exact difference between the two yet I know for sure that both taste good in their own way. I make falooda at home which is our homemade version of sri lankan falooda and it’s with kasa kasa also known as black poppy seeds. Two years ago I celebrated my 1st ramadan in dubai by hosting an ifthar for friends and co workers of my husband and my husband taught me how to use agar agar with falooda. I really enjoyed it and ever since started following the same technique while making falooda.
Here is a quick and photogenic post on how to make it.

How to make this agar agar –
Boil 4 cups of water
Add 1 pack agar agar and stir continuously until the agar agar melts and the mixture thickens.
To check consistency pour a drop onto a dry surface and see if it sets partially if so its ready to pour. Another way is to pour a drop onto a bowl of cold water if the drop curdles.
If so take off heat.
Add color after the mixture is thickened.
