Have a look:
Don't they look really tempting? Jamuns, or java plums or black plums, are one of the best summer fruits to indulge in. Jamuns are incredibly tasty, particularly when they are eaten with a little bit of chaat masala sprinkled atop them. They are also one of the healthiest seasonal foods to add to your diet during summers as they have a host of important nutrients, vitamins and minerals in them. They are also known as the 'fruit of the Gods' and are extremely versatile too. You can turn jamuns into jams and spreads, add them to milkshakes and juices, make jamun ice-pops, or simply slice them and toss them in fruit and vegetable salads.Also Read: 5 Incredible Jamun Recipes for a Delicious Summer
