A Cool Idea As Summer Hits

A Cool Idea As Summer Hits

Summer is upon us which means ice creams and other cold desserts are going to be selling like hot cakes. But ditch the humdrum vanilla and chocolate flavours, and make a singular khandvi sorbet that's served at Tresind in BKC. Chef Sarfaraz Ahmed of the eatery tells us, "Most people in India have had khandvi before, and realising that this sorbet has the precise same taste as an actual khandvi, a Gujarati farsan, may be a little unbelievable for them."
