Belimbing Buluh & Prawns

Are you familiar with these fruits? They are locally grown here....actually there are two types of these fruits....yellow and green. The scientific name is Averrhoa belimbi linn but we often call these fruits 'belimbing buluh'.

My parents have these two kinds of these fruits. Both trees bears fruits continuously throughout the year. There are many health benefits of these fruits *ask Mr Goole to help find their benefits* ...(^-^)...

What I like to do to these fruits....I cooked them following my mom's style....

....pan-fry them with little maize oil, prawns, small chillies, garlics and shallots.....yummylicious!

We have that in the Philipphines and we use it as a souring agent in some filipino dish. I also love eating it with salt.
