  25. This is my first time here. Is the mystery revealed yet?:) My guesses are

    1. Betelnut
    2. Fruit of Cashew nut
    3. Kokum or Aam papdi

    ReplyDelete
  26. i used to stay in Goa..and cocum is one of the desired fruit there.. You get juices, syrups, candies of cocum..most tourists buy cocum as a reminder of the place..cashews are equally popular there specially used for the goan fenny
