Sweet, extravagant and fun, this is a sort of Irani café version of a knickerbocker glory: a glass full of malai kulfi, vermicelli, rose syrup and sweet basil seeds. Apparently Kyani & Co. first dreamt up this unusual dessert-drink combination. Badshah, near Crawford Market, serves a famous one.

This can be enjoyed as a dessert or a drink. If you can’t find basil seeds, use chia seeds; they’re almost the same.
