The world has christened berries as superfoods recently but berries have always been a part of the Indian kitchen. Numerous scientific studies have regarded berries as extremely healthy and indicate that they should be a part of your daily diet owing to their high antioxidant levels. The antioxidants and polyphenols, that also impart the dark purple or crimson colour to these berries, make them good for your heart, brain and even your skin. Not just that, these bright and sweet superfruits are a delicious addition to your breakfast bowl or your evening salad. If you walk around the supermarket fruit aisle, you will find several varieties of imported berries like the cranberries, goji berries or the blueberries that have had everyone talking. But we'd like to introduce and turn the spotlight on our very own native Indian berries that deserve as much attention and are probably healthier as they are locally cultivated and are not packaged and flown in from thousand miles away.
They are :
Karonda, Phalsa, Ber/Bor, Rasbhari, Shahtoot (mulberry), Jamun, Amla.
