Trip to London is synonymous with going to East ham and along with enjoying south Indian food, buying loads of Indian sabji from grocery shops. These small shops cater to pan Indian population who visit here from various parts of London and surrounding counties.
Along with all other favorite sabji , always get kavath , woodapple ..I always find that name funny.. Obsessed empire named everything after their limited gyan of the world ...With no resemblance of any sort either in the appearance, structure, taste this largely wild fruit was named ,as some apple...Wood apple
With changing times and living context , the fruit that was always available in my mama's backyard ( परसात शेकड्याने पडलेली कवठे...to describe precisely)has become a luxury here ..
