Karonda Dal is a brilliant lentil stew based preparation made from lentils cooked along with karonda (a berry), flavoured with garlic cloves, curry leaves, spiced with green chillies and a pinch of sugar added to cut the tartness. The dal has a combination of flavours which is a medley of tangy, sweet, tartness and finally a faint bitter note that makes it strangely attractive. Karonda dal is often eaten with roti, chapatti or rice.

 

Karonda is a berry like fruit from the cranberry family that originated near the Himalayas and is now available in several regions around Bihar, West Bengal, Karnataka and the Nilgiri hills. The raw fruit of Karonda has a sour, acidic taste along with a slight sweetness tinge when ripened. The raw fruit is best for preparing the karonda dal as it gives an exceptional pungent, natural flavours and freshness to the smooth lentil and spices cooked together.

 

Karonda has a very high concentration of iron, which along with high Vitamin C levels makes it a very healthy fruit. This fruit is also used in making Pickles, relish, chutney or jams. Karonda is good for digestion, eating of karonda fruit would make your teeth stronger, Juice extracted from Karonda fruit aids in relieving urinary tract infections etc. To try this dish and I am sure will enjoy its explicit taste.

Just a wild guess, but I bet that cherry was a bit sour! Have never seen cherries used and cooked outside of desserts-thank you for opening our eyes to the possibilities!
