Is that a berry??


Or an inflorescence??

Looks like a berry but encloses a whole lot of flowers inside.

What is it?

The size ranges from .75 cm to 1.5 cm ....


Now you have to guess what fruit , vegetable of flower/inflorescence it is. I gave you a lot of hints and many of you might have seen it i am sure.

Another variety if it you might have had in desserts or ice creams , or may be your smoothies.

Want any more hints?

A recipe coming next :-)

  3. these are figs. more precisely the Indian figs which are smaller than the regular ones. we call it joggi dumur where dumur stands for fig. make a curry with it Sangeeta. it tastes yum.

  7. @ Velva...grapes ???

    @ hitchy ... The mahudo is called mahua in hindi and belongs to the same family but is smaller and different in color. The dried mahua fruits are edible and i have tasted some great sweet flat breads (poori) with it.

    @Sayantani...your answer is the correctest dear. I know you are such a foodie.

    @Suma...welcome back darling, do you have some south indian recipes with it?

    @ Satya...welcome to my blog and yes, you are right.

    @ Varunavi...this is wild fig and is eaten raw as a vegetable. It gets infested with lots of insects when ripe and turns inedible even when it smells superb.

    @ The do dreamer...welcome to my blog dear.It is gooler, now you know it's called wild Indian fig.

    Read the next post friends, you get the recipe of a spicy curry made with these.
