Jackfruit tree a jackfruit- split wide open the outer spiny cover
From hating to loving this veggie (fruit???), I have come a long way-as a child I could never have so many of these vegetables ,the ghia/lauki family in particular and karela and kathal.
But now... I love them all, and ever since I have started blogging I feel my sense of taste has become keener than ever- do you all , fellow bloggers feel the same or -felt the same (here I am talking to vintage bloggers :) )???I look at unfamiliar veggies with new respect and want to try my hand at making eh! -parval? ghia? karela? tori? tinda? yup -all of em! haha!
