Indian Foods to cook in September, List of Top Fruits and Vegetables in season for September in India  |

These days, most of the fruits and veggies are available in the market throughout the year due to the availability of hybrid crops, artificial climate controlled farming, and so on. However, there is a traditional season for every fruit and vegetable; and somehow even today Mother Nature ensures that these fruits and veggies taste best when they are “in season”!

So, now that September is here, would you be able to figure out what veggies and fruits are in season? Just stroll around the market and you will find these fruits and veggies grabbing your attention with their flawless and fresh looks! Bright and purple eggplants, beautifully striped green watermelons, soft and velvety kiwis, pleasingly white cauliflowers, and vibrant red Pomegranate and crunchy guava. Indeed, what a wonderful collection September offers us – the best of veggies to make desi and continental dishes, and amazing fruits to make salads and juices. Indeed, there’s a lot of interesting stuff to try out in the kitchen now.

The Eggplant is a very versatile vegetable. Whether you want to make a spicy bhartha or a quick stir-fried subzi, it is a quick and handy option to cook on any day. In this mailer, we present you with two off-beat recipes with eggplants – a tongue-tickling Eggplant Chaat, and an exotic Baked Eggplants Topped with Curds. You will love both.

Top Fruits in season for September in India 

When it comes to fruits, this season offers you Kiwis, Pomegranate, and Watermelons.

Although watermelons are construed to be a summer fruit, you get the best ones in September! This refreshing fruit fits well into salads like the Watermelon Orange and Feta Salad, as well as rejuvenating drinks like the Watermelon and Coconut Water Drink.

Kiwi also combines well with coconut water as you can see in the Kiwi Infused Coconut Water. You can also combine Kiwi with other fruits as in the case of the Sweet Lime and Kiwi Juice.

Pomegranate too is another healthy and tasty fruit that everybody loves. While you can have it as a regular juice or milkshake, we suggest you also experiment with interesting alternatives like the Pomegranate Tea, and Boondi and Pomegranate Raita.
