Rose water 2/3cup
Sugar 1 ½ cups
Rice noodles 1
Crushed ice 8cups
Combine the lemon juice, rose water, and sugar in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved and the mix is syrupy. Remove the pan from the heat and let the syrup cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until cold about 2hours.
Meanwhile soak the rice noodles in cold water to cover for 20min.
Boil water to a large saucepan, drain the noodles in a colander and cook in the boiling water until soft. Drain in the colander and rinse under cold running water until cool. Drain again then cut the noodles into 1 inch pieces, using scissors.
Working in batches combines the crushed ice and chilled rose water syrup in a blender and process to an icy puree. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the rice noodles.
Transfer the mixture to 8 wine glasses and put slice of lime or lemon over each FALUDA and serve immediately.
