The iconic Indian jujube has an integral part in everybody’s life. It is a mouthwatering fruit that we’d pluck out of huge thorny trees by aggressively swaying the branches of the jujube tree. It has a unique taste that can hardly be matched by any other fruit in the world. It is known as Indian jujube and regi kaya, regi pandu, elantha or kalgudi across the states. It is a lip-smacking treat that reminds us of our childhood days.
Thejujube fritters are another delicacy that are made during the summer season. One can find jujubes only from December till the end of April. A great way to enjoy the taste of jujubes throughout the year is to make fritters from them. The fritters take inspiration from how the Indian jujube is normally eaten. The ripe jujubes are famously eaten with chilly and salt. The fritters are made with similar flavors that pair incredibly well with their distinctive taste.
