A cool idea as summer hits
Chef Sarfaraz Ahmed of the eatery tells us, 'Most people in India have had khandvi before, and realising that this sorbet has the exact same taste as an actual khandvi, a Gujarati farsan, is a little unbelievable for them.'

But ditch the humdrum vanilla and chocolate flavours, and make a unique 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 exact same taste as an actual khandvi, a Gujarati farsan, is a little unbelievable for them."
