Black Jamun Ice Cream

Black jamun is known as Black berry, Jamoon, Naaval pazham, Naga pazham and so on. In Tamil it is known as Naval Pazham. The seed is also used in various alternative healing systems like Ayurveda (to control diabetes), Unani and Chinese medicine. Dried extract of the seeds reduces the blood sugar and glucosuria. Black Jamun is a good source of vitamin c and also rich in calcium and phosphorus. It is a seasonal fruit. It comes only in June, July and August.
According to Hindu tradition, Rama existed on the fruit in the forest for 14 years during his exile from Ayodhya. Because of this, many Hindus called black jamun as a 'fruit of the gods,' especially in Gujarat, India. Lord Krishna has been described as having skin in the color of Black jamun.  Black jamun is a good anti oxidant also.
