Jamun Crumble

It feels like Summer has already arrived. The days have become so hot lately that I can’t even imagine how it’s going to feel when the season actually comes. I hate the sun. Can never stand the heat but one thing I love about it is the summer fruits in full swing on the trees.

Mango being my favourite, although I try to avoid it as much as I can because it isn’t very nice to me (end up with a face full of pimples), there’s one fruit I recently got introduced to thanks to the folks at Jain Farm Fresh and I loved it.

Known as the fruit of the Gods, Jamun is not everyone’s best friend. It has quite an acquired taste that many people haven’t taken much of a liking to.

Extremely tart in flavour, this leathery fruit holds a firm place in Hindu Mythology. Apparently, Lord Ram lived on the jamun for years after his exile from Ayodhya.

It is said to be grown on a jambu tree that lives for over 100 years and releases a nourishing fruit that is rich with life-giving juices. It is extremely useful in the treatment of diabetes and stomach ailments.

If you find it difficult to get access to this fruit or interested in finding a new way to eat it, you must try out Jain Farm Fresh’s Frozen Jamun Pulp that is sold all through the year.

I decided to do a Jamun Curd Crumble since I’m on a health spree. It’s a 6 ingredient fix that can includes no form of cooking.

Have it chilled and oh, it’s a real summer delight!

PS: I developed this recipe along with a few others for their website. You can buy the product here.

  1. I’m an autistic person and one of the things I enjoy doing is writing funny/random crazy stories that make me laugh (maybe they make you laugh too?) My blog is at http://www.AutisticWritings.com Maybe you’d also consider giving a small donation to help me survive? Life as an autistic person is kind of difficult to say the least, and it’s especially difficult to survive financially and so that is why I am requesting donations. Please check my blog for ways you can donate. Thank you very much for your kindness!
