If you have not tried lychee, do try it out.  it tastes just like Nungu / Palmyra / Ice-apple. I was surprised as it tasted just like our Nungu.

Nellikaai Thayir Pachadi ~ Gooseberry Chutney

Eating Gooseberry is Good for Health. I can never eat raw gooseberry. My taste bud never allowed me to eat one whole gooseberry till now. I like the candied gooseberry and a sweet pickle made with gooseberry. This chutney is another way that i eat. The tangy curd and spicy chilly balances the sourness. This chutney is for people like me, who could not eat raw gooseberry.
