Shrimp Curry with Coconut and Bilimbi Fruit

Whenever I get this fruit known as  bilimbi fruit or ‘irumban puli’ is available, I love to prepare fish or shrimp with it.

I love the sour tone it adds. A change from using Gambooge, Tamarind or Mango for seafood. Have you tried it?
The fruit can be eaten along with the seafood. This fruit has various health benefits as well.
It is known to be good for eliminating phlegm , reducing heat from the body, has anti-inflammatory properties, is used in treatment of high blood pressure effectively, reduces the pain caused by cavities, helps with cough, rheumatism & acne. Good reason to add it to your diet if you can.
