Nungu Delight (palm Fruit)

Nungu is a fruit from the palm tree. It is known as Ice apple in English. While I was searching for the English name I found this. It has lots of minerals and it keep you cool from the hot sun. We love to eat Nungu as it is, but i tried this recipe, it tasted yum. For some strange reason my son did not like Nungu, but i wanted to give him in the hot summer day, i made this, he liked. I blended Nungu with milk he liked that too.


Nungu - 4 to 5
Sugar - as per taste
Milk - 2 cups
Rooh afza syrup - 1 tbsp


1. Peel the skin on Nungu and cut it to small pieces.
2. Mix sugar and rooh afza syrup and add the Nungu pieces.
3. Serve chilled.

I blended all the ingredients and served instead of milk in the evening, kids loved it.

One day I combined tender coconut and Nungu, it also tasted yum!!


Tender coconut - 1 cup
Nungu - 2 to 3
Sugar ( optional)


Combine all the ingredients and blend it. Serve chilled.

Here is the Nungu fruit.

I love to make different things and serve the kids. This entry goes to FIC - Express your mood hosted by Nithya started by Harini.

We too love nungu,but always had it plain.Mixing it with milk and tender coconut is a great idea.Adding rooh-afsa to it is an even more better idea..you seem to have followed Juhi Chawla's advice literally..;)..rooh-afsa milao;)

Hi Vidhya, I tried adding it in dosa mavu, also. But she sees the color and refuses it:-( Prepared juice, kheer,etc, but all in Vain.
