ABOUT Bimbli Mosaru Gojju RECIPE

Bimbli (Averrhoa bilimbi) is multi-lobed, oblong fruit with a pale green waxy skin and crunchy but watery flesh, very similar to the star fruit, although the flesh is much more acidic. Known as Bimbli, Bilimbi, bimbiri, Irumban Puli, Chemmeen Puli, Bimbul, Orkkaapuli, Bimblin or Pulinchi, it is one of the common fruit grown in almost every home in the coastal regions of Karnataka. With its sharp, tongue tickling taste, it is used in Konkan cuisine as a sour agent. I have literally grown eating tender Bimbli sprinkled with little salt and red chilli powder almost everyday. When short of tamarind or other souring agents, Amma simply would replace them with Bimbli as they are available throughout the year. The recipe for Bimbli Mosaru Gojju is really simple and easy to make.
