Belada Hannu brings back many memories. We ate the fruit as it is by just sprinkling salt and chilli powder, sometimes we drank the juice, sometimes we ate the halwa. I miss you amma!

We were very lucky to get these fruits for Ganesha festival this year. It was offered to Lord Ganesha as part of the neivedyam
