Chennai is so hot nowadays. Nungu or palm fruit, sugar palm is on season now. My kids love to have this fruit. In summers I used to give cool shakes in the evening, I saw this recipe in a TV show and i made  it. They cut the palm fruit and served with milk andRoohafza syrup. I made some changes and did this.Kids loved this.

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


 Peel the skin of nungu and cut it to small pieces.

Combine nungu, sugar, chilled milk, rooh afza and blend to milk shake.

You can cut the palm fruit in to small pieces and add milk, sugar and rooh afza , and serve .

Picture of palm fruit, the vendor will cut the shell and take out the Nungu. pic courtesy Wikipedia.
