If you are a fish curry fan and love to experiment with your palates, Kudampuli also known as garcinia cambogia is worth a try for you.

Kudampuli (Kodampuli, Malabar tamarind, Garcinia cambogia) is a small pumpkin/lemon shape fruit which starts out green, turns yellow in its youth, is smoked and cured into a wrinkled, black dry fruit with ageing and ironically that’s when its authenticity begin. This fruit stays fresh for years afterwards and is in the best form to be used as a condiment for seafood loving kitchens in South India especially fish dishes. Just like the name suggests, Puli i.e. sour in Malayalam, is soaked in curries as a substitute to regular tamarind for its distinct taste.

In Ayurveda, Kudampuli is exalted for its medicinal values like promoting digestion, curing uterine issues, arthritis pain and ulcers. In the recent late 2012 studies, Europe and United States acclaimed Garcinia cambogia aka Kudampuli to be a weight loss activator for having Hydroxycitric acid or HCA as an integrant. Apart from quelling appetite, it was claimed to be preventing fats from being absorbed in body. Although the clinical trials found no compelling evidences for short term weight loss but Kudampuli’s savouriness indeed doesn’t need any testament for it’s incredible tang…!

    Awesome product. However, a customer care number would be great for your customers to reach you to find out the status of their orders.
