Gajorer Tok\Carrot Chatni

When my Chhoto Mashi came to our home last summer, she prepared this dessert with bottle gourd & boroi. From that time it became my favorite.While back in bangalore, I tried the same with Carrot & the taste was good.

Boroi is a tropical fruit tree species, belonging to the family Rhamnaceae. It is most commonly found in the tropical and sub-tropical regions. Originally native to India it is now widely naturalized in tropical region from Africa to Afghanistan and China, and also through Malaysia and into Australia and in some Pacific regions. It can form dense stands and become invasive in some areas, including Fiji and Australia and has become a serious environmental weed in Northern Australia. Courtesy to fruitipedia.
