Indian Truffle


Recently I have been to a curtain raiser event hosted by IIHM for Young Chef Olympiad by Chef. ShaunKenworthy. We also had a master class of Indian Truffle by Chef Shaun Kenworthy, he prepared Indian Truffle.

Indian Truffle – Truffle prepared by the ingredients available in Indian markets. The way of preparation, platting looks inviting.

As of now, I started taking cooking class with kids, thought of preparing some no cook recipes, this one striked my mind and I directed kids to prepare it with little twist in ingredients from what chef made, as it would be easy for kids. Kids loved it a lot, they prepared it with all interest and it got vanished in minutes. Also heard from their parents that they tried it at home, and it tasted heavenly. Let us move on to the recipe…

Crumbled Ice Apple / Nungu Crumble


Already I have shared one recipe with Nungu/Ice apple – Nungu Payasam/IceApple Kheer and now this is my second one. As already told in the previous post, nungu is one among the most important coolant and which is available only in summer. I would say that a seasonal fruit with a yummy recipe, you can prepare this recipe to make the kids consume this Ice apple.

Also I like to thank my friend Subadhra, who shared me the wonderful and yummy recipe. My kids loved it a lot and also as a mom I feel happy that somehow I made the kids consume this Nungu/Ice Apple. This can be served as Dessert for lunchtime. A best coolant for this summer to beat the heat.

I am taking this to Fiesta Friday #69 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner. Let us move on to the recipe…


  • Nungu / Ice Apple – 9 nos
  • Fresh Lemon juice – 2 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1 ½ tsp
  • Nannari syrup – 1 tbsp


  • Skin out the Nungu/Ice apple.
  • Take the nungu in a wide mouth vessel and crumble it well with your hands. Do not pulse or blend in blender.
  • After well crumbled, pour in the lemon juice followed by sugar.
  • Mix them well, until the sugar is dissolved and refrigerate it for an hour.
  • If using nannari syrup: Pour in the Nannari syrup, give a stir and refrigerate it for an hour.
