Try and have at least a few of these fruits when they are in season for their medicinal value, if not for their unusual flavour. Jamun is a fruit that is most commonly avoided by many, due to its sharp and tangy taste. However, this fruit is said to be a boon for diabetics as the enzyme 'jamboline' in it helps to control the blood sugar levels. So i've specially made this raita in which the taste of jamun is very nicely enhanced by the blend of cumin seeds powder and coriander with low-fat curds. Select sweet and ripe jamuns that are soft pulpy, for best results. Serve this raita with a pulao or even as a dip with fat-free khakhras.
