Vellaripalam is the fruit of cucumber. It is not easily available in markets. When we travel to Theni, there are some villages in the route. Ladies sell this fruit in front of their houses. I never miss that opportunity to buy this fruit. The fully ripe vellaripalam should have a crack on its skin. Only then the flesh will be soft and it tastes great. Today is the third week of Bloggin Marathon #18 and I am posting under Indian Basics.
