Chef Ranveer Brar shared a long post on his Instagram to talk about summer’s “unsung heroes” that we all should include in our lifestyle this season. The four fruits mentioned by the chef are – jackfruit, bel (wood apple), singhara (water chestnut), and tadgola (ice apple). He even listed some benefits of them in his post and reminisced how he used to have them all the time in his childhood while growing up in a small town, all thanks to his “biji”.

Chef Brar started the post by mentioning the benefits of “growing up in a joint family in a small town.” He said that it had helped him learn his “grandmothers’ ways of dealing with the ecosystem, especially the change of seasons.” He further went on to talk about how mangoes are the ultimate summer fruit but there are some “unsung heroes that bring a lot to your summer table.”

While concluded the post, Ranveer Brar added, “In an age where local and seasonal is “it”, let’s go back to how our grandmas dealt with the changing seasons & start conversations with vendors about what they sell. It’s nature’s intention to help us deal with the change of seasons. All we need to do is look around and use what’s given to us. This summer, make these unsung heroes a part of your lifestyle!”

  1. Jackfruit – Due to its high water content, antioxidants, and minerals, jackfruit is highly recommended for summer. It can even prevent skin damage and help improve heart health.
