As my friend was to Trichy, he got me this (Cucumber Fruit/Vellaripazham/Puttupazham) fruit. I couldn’t take the full picture of this cucumber fruit as it was bursted. Being a food blogger and a recipe developer, nowadays my friends use to get something may be a special or something new and fully related to the food and suggest me to develop a recipe, it may be from their hometown or happens even there are on touring. When they have completely a different food with unique taste, they collect the details of the food and keep me updated about those food and suggest to create depending on it. Having people who support us in my each and every move may be a passion or profession is like a boon – Feeling Blessed.
