(Bangla) Katal, the national fruit of Bangladesh! You either love it or you don’t!
After a morning football (soccer) match they shared this fruit with us. Credits go to my son, Austin for the photo. I had taken my grandson to the field to play football with these guys, trying to get in a few matches before Ramadan started.
The one photo is of me reaching for my “bulb” of Jack Fruit! It is a species of tree in the mulberry and fig family.
My friend Rasel invited me to his sister’s house for a nice meal of jumbo shrimp, curried veggies, beef, chicken and pangash mach (fish), and other veggies, and rice. The meal was topped with this dessert and then followed by some good Bengali cha (tea). Thanks Rasel!
