Mulberry Cream Bowl

Try this Indian seasonal treat after exploring Hyderabad's iconic mosque.

Visitors from around the world flock to Charminar, one of India’s most famous landmarks. Constructed in 1591, this mosque and monument is now a symbol of Hyderabad, the capital of the southern state of Telangana.

From morning until late into the night, small cafes surrounding the mosque serve thousands of locals and tourists every day. Vendors rely on local produce to whip up refreshing parfaits, smoothies, and milkshakes. During mulberry season, juice bars in Hyderabad add whole mulberries to sweet cream bowls. Customers can order the seasonal special from October to November and March through May. The rich, semi-frozen milk base with a splash of juicy color, texture, and flavor offers patrons cooling respite on a hot day—i.e., any day—in Hyderabad.
