Traditional taste!

This 'Kumkhal'/'Umkhal' (walnuts) picture reminded me of our childhood days, in early morning me and my bothers often hurriedly rush to our neighbouring house where Pu Chalbuanga's cows will left 'kumkhal' as usual. Unlike the present times we hardly have other options of ready made eatable things from shops, we the village kids mostly depended on forest and other natural products. Many many things have changed now, we may find various ready made eatable things even in rural areas also but in sometimes my kind of taste could not avoid like this kind of natural products!

Pu Buanga Dictionay defines:
um-khal, (same as kumkhal.) n. the name of a tree and its edible fruit the stone of which looks like a three-lobed walnut. The kernel resembles an almond in flavour and is eaten as a nut. Where the tree grows the fruit is found on the ground in large quantities. Cows are extremely fond of these windfalls-ejecting the stones or seeds from their mouths in numbers when they are chewing the cud after feasting upon them. (El├Žocarpus robustus. Wenger.)
