Nungu in Koyil Poratheevu, Battcaloa district

Nungu ~ Kernel of the Palmyrah; the near-black fruits contain three heart shaped & cream coloured 'nungus', when cut into the hard shell and out pop. Some fruits may have up to four kernels in one fruit.

It looks and tastes like very delicious jelly, as a unique wonder delicacy of nature
