NUNGU (ICE APPLE) COOLERS

Nungu, ice apple in English is the tender fruit of palm. They are translucent jelly like kernels of the palm, packed with nutritional and medicinal values. The treasure fruit is a boon during summer, with amazing cooling effect.

While we travel on road, my grandpa used to buy this in plenty. There will a spoonful of juice inside the kernel and we will be very cautious in getting the kernels intact.

The jelly like fruits after peeling the skin. Generally, we eat nungu in this form.


INGREDIENTS:

Nungu fruit (ice apple)- 4
Chilled milk - 3 cups
TSR rose syrup - 4 tablespoons

NOTE: Do not add sugar as the rose syrup has high sugar in it.

METHOD:

Peel the skin of the nungu.

Cut 2 nungus into small pieces. Add a spoon of rose syrup and mix well. Keep aside and use this for the topping.

Blend the remaining nungus in a mixie. Now pour in the milk and rose syrup. Blend again for 10 seconds. Top with the colourful nungu pieces. Serve chilled.

  31. nongus usually gets over on sight so I doubt it will survive the trip to the blender but if there are any survivors will try. :)
