Jamun raita

Posted on July 31, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes/diabetic recipe | Tags: , |

Try and have at least a few of these fruits when they are in season for their medicinal value, if not for their unusual flavour.
Jamun is a fruit that is most commonly avoided by many, due to its sharp and tangy taste. However, this fruit is said to be a boon for diabetics as the enzyme ‘jamboline’ in it helps to control the blood sugar levels. So I’ve specially made this raita in which the taste of jamun is very nicely enhanced by the blend of cumin powder and coriander with low fat curds. Select sweet and ripe jamuns that are soft pulpy, for best results.
Serve this raita with a pulao or even as a dip with fat free khakhras.

Preparation Time : 15 mins.
Cooking Time : Nil.

Serves 4.

½ cup ripe black jamuns, deseeded and finely chopped

1 cup low fat curds beaten

½ teaspoon roasted cumin (jeera) powder
1 teaspoon chopped coriander
salt to taste
1. Combine the jamuns, cumin powder, coriander and salt and mix well.
2. Add the curds, mix well and refrigerate till chilled.
3. Serve chilled.
You can also make this raita using other fruits like black grapes or pomegranate.
