Black Beauties...BERRY BERRY TASTY!

(Kaalojaam - Delicious & Healthy)

Delicious Kaalojaam (Black Berry) .....A summer fruit available for a limited period in June-July. Kaalojaam or BlackBerry has a unique taste...you have to have it to understand.... sweet with a coarse-acidic tang which leaves an aftertaste. But the purple juicy pulp of these small spherical fruits is almost addictive...you just cant seem to stop....and before you know you have a bowl full of seeds....remnants of the fruit you just ate up!

Though I love to eat them as it is, to add to its taste, I do as follows :


Ingredients
Kalojaam = 500gms
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Kashundi (Indian Mustard sauce) - 1 - 1.5 tsp

Procedure :
1. Just put a slit or two on each of the fruit
2. Marinate with salt, sugar and kashundi.
3. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour
4.Enjoy !

Side Effects : A purple tongue!!!

Some more info about the humble Kaalojaam - A wonderful fruit for combating stress, cardiovascular disease and cancer. It has very few calories so anyone with obesity can eat it happily. You can skip your evening tea and consume this fruit instead because it cools and body and prepares it for rest. The best thing would be to make a drink with kalo jam, pudina pata, salot or honey to guarantee a good night’s sleep.

@Sharmila- Jaa bolechho!! What's in a name!! ;))
I think mishti kaalojaam may have got its name from its similarity in the colour with the fruit!

@Srilekha-Just adding flavour to an already delicious fruit!

@Kitchen Flavours-So glad you liked it!

@Rush-Ha ha!! My little girl was so frightened seeing my black-blue purplish tongue!

I share a love/hate relationship with virtual memory because of how prices are always,and I mean always dropping. I hate buying SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (seemingly) a cheap price only to see it become 10% cheaper a couple of weeks later.
