In my last post I shared about the fruit sour sop, how I had the privilege of enjoying the fruit of my childhood days here in Vietnam.
My stay in Vietnam is coming to an end as I will be returning to India shortly.
During my stay here some of the other fruits I enjoyed are rambutan and mangoosteen.
As with many tropical foods, these may, reduce hypertension, improve diabetes, have anti cancer properties, reduce weight, and may slow ageing. This is based on animal studies. This is rich in Vitamin A.
This could be baked, or fried as a vegetable. It could be cut into small pieces and boiled and then mashed. Some eat it adding salt and seasoning, while others others add coconut paste or milk and sugar or honey. I enjoy the sweet variety.
Those who live in other tropical countries should taste this yam. It is yummy and healthy.
