When you have abundant supply of home-grown Bell fruits in Summer, you tend to use it in anything and everything for sure 😀
Bell fruit has many names like Java apple, Wax apple, Water apple, Syzygium, Jambi fruit or Jambu nerale. I normally prefer to use local, easily available and pesticide free stuffs as much as possible. I have shared the juice recipe before and now I am sharing one salad or commonly known as Kosambari in our local term. Which is “no onion and no garlic” and ideal for any fasting or festivities.
Carrots – 2 (red or normal)
Bell fruit – 10 – 12
Raw mango or lemon – as needed
Grated coconut – 2 table spoons
Coriander leaves – 1 table spoon (chopped)
Coconut oil – 1 tea spoon
Mustard – 1 tsp
Hing – ¼ tsp
Green chilli – 1 or 2
Curry leaves – 1 spring
-Grate carrots, chop bell fruits into very small chunks.
-If you are using raw mango, grate and add or else use lemon juice.
-Mix in coconut, coriander leaves, salt.
-Now prepare seasoning, heat oil, splutter mustard, add chopped green chillies, curry leaves fry for a min and add it to the salad bowl and mix everything and check once.
– Serve as a salad or as a Kosambari /side dish for lunch.
