Bimbla /Tree Sorrell Gozzu

Bimbul, Bilimbi or Tree Sorrell is a fruit which is used as a souring agent instead of Tamarind. Pickles both spicy and sweet are made from this fruit which is known for it’s medicinal value as well. I had never made a cold preparation of this fruit, so when my dear friend Pushpalata Satish shared her recipe with me, I lost no time in trying it out. Goes extremely well with Dal rice, Roti and even Curd rice.

Ingredients :

10 Bimbul

7 cloves of garlic

5 green chillies

2 tbsps grated coconut

2 tbsps coconut oil

Salt

Method:

Roast the Bimbul, green chillies and garlic in one tbsp of oil till the Bimbul changes colour. Allow to cool. Grind it along with the coconut and salt to a coarse paste. Do not grind it to a fine paste as it is best enjoyed coarse. Tip it into a bowl and drizzle with the remaining coconut oil. Serve immediately. This preparation needs to be refrigerated as it is not heated.
