Wood apple sweet pachadi



Wood apple makes its appearance felt only during Ganesh festival. Apart from Kozhukattai's this is my favourite pachadi. I really look forward to eating this fruit. I love the tart and sweet taste of this pachadi. A ripe fruit can be cracked open by another fruit. The one which is ripe will break open first. So check the recipe here.

Ingredients
Wood apple-1
Jaggery-1 large piece
Cardamom-1or 2 pods 

Take a mortar and a pestle. Pound the jaggery, cardamom pods and wood apple into single mass. Scoop it out and enjoy. On this note, I would like to wish my readers a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.Enjoy this traditional beauty. Sending this to Flavors of South India

  18. My grandpa's house in Mysore had/still has a huge wood apple tree. We, as kids, would just scoop them out as is or have with salt and rasam powder mixed. My mo would make the way you've made it or make a panaka (juice) with it. Good memories, thanks to your post :)
