I have spoken enough about the tortures of summer and scorching sun. Nothing has changed even though the peak of summer called as Agni Natchathram is over.

We have been feeding on loads of mangoes and also try to balance it with natural body coolants like butter milk, cucumber and palm fruit to beat the heat.

Palm fruit is a very delicious jelly like fruit which is highly nutritious too.

They are se (Read more...) fruits that we find in summer. I have loved them since childhood and have had them in many ways :)

When they are freshly cut open from the shell, they can be consumed as it is without pealing the skin. The skin would be almost white when it is fresh and would turn to pink or brown after a while.

Choose soft and tender palm fruit kernels when you buy them. Remove the skin and enjoy them in various ways as said below :)
