Best Indian Foods for February
Most fruits and veggies are available throughout the year these days, but it takes our palate just a second to spot which ones are in season, and which ones not! The season’s best, the fruits and veggies that Mother Nature offers us in that period of time are bursting with flavour, juicy to the core and absolutely irresistible! They look so bright and attractive that you cannot cross them in the market without buying some – and they are easy on the pocket too when the season peaks. In fact, when something is in season, you would have noticed that it tastes great even when had raw, or just boiled and seasoned elegantly.
We strolled down the marketplace to figure out what’s in season in February, and we found a bounty of tasty veggies and fruits.
