Basil Seeds on cheese


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


  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
