Basil Seeds on cheese

This is what passes for sophisticated in NYC. In case you’ve never eaten a basil seed…don’t.

    Perfect punch for Asia especially during Ramadhan – red rose syrup, with condensed milk, some icre-cream soda amd well soaked basil seeds. Try this milky red syrup and you will love it.

    Basil seeds are not poisonous.When added to water they get a gelatinous coating. They are used extensively in this form all over asia. primarily india, pakistan, thailand in drinks like falooda etc. They are also used in Iran i think. You can try them on some light flavor ice cream like vanilla and maybe some rose or strawberry syrup with a few water soaked basil seeds.

    Me too. I love mustard seeds, sesame seeds, dill seeds, poppy seeds, etc., so if basil seeds aren’t poisonous, they might be basily and yummy and crunchy. Did they taste bad?
