Pomegranate-BBC news calls this the fruity panacea. Packed with anti-oxidants (note the ruby red colour), it’s known to protect the heart, prevent prostate cancer, reduce LDL (the bad cholesterol). It’s rich in ACE Vitamins and iron, and no wonder doctors and many others are recommending a glass of pomegranate juice as a part of everyone’s diet
Fortunately, it’s available in India pretty much all the year round and this is one fruit, the more I read about it, the more I am convinced of it’s goodness.
Guess what I did with these ruby red seeds??
Thanks to all those who took part in the guessing game. This time, no one came close to guessing though – probably because the veteran guessers like Priya, Neelu, Sumitha, Priya (Akshayapaatram), Sudha, Lalitha, Krishna Arjuna etc didn’t make attempts 🙂
The picture at the top reveals what I made with the pomegranate seeds- Rasam indeed.
Rasam is soul-food for any Tamilian. Be it a simple tomato rasam or the more exotic varieties like Mysore Rasam, Lemon Rasam or the fruity varieties made with pineapple, pomegranate, mangoes and so on.
