Kaphoi with Yendem (Promagranate)

promagranate2Kaphoi (Promagranate) was also an all time favourite fruit of mine. The kaphoi are mostly sour and that is the best part. Now I search for sour kaphoi & I don’t get it. Abok (Grand-mother) had sweet kaphoi plant which she calls it as bedana kaphoi & getting one of the bedana was a big treat.

Wrap the kaphoi seeds with yendem leaves, with little salt & green chilly & eat it. This is best with the sour kaphoi. If you are very sleepy, this is an instant getting awake technique 😉
