Vilampazham Jam. Vilampazha Halwa. Vilam Pazha Laddu.
The Botanical name of this fruit is Feronia elephantum. The English common name is ‘Wood Apple’. The shell is hard and lethery…goes from pale greenish white to half white when ripe. The pulp is extremely ‘tangy’…so they always mix it with jaggery. This is kind of seasonal fruit, hits the market during ‘Aadi Maasam’(July-August). Though I have mentioned it Halwa, there isnt anything fancy here…just flipped the pulp and mixed it with gurd thats all!:)
Mix the pulp with jaggery, grated coconut, crushed cardamom and run few spoons of ghee. Just eat it.:)
