Maia has a new five year old friend who comes to play in the empty lots behind our building. One days she came to me and handed me the above round fruit. She asked me to the squash it and make it yummy and bring it own for them to eat the following day. So the following day I looked at this round fruit and wondered how to make it yummy. I had never eaten this particular fruit though I’ve had a bigger one made into juice. So I knocked on my landlady’s door and asked her. She laughed and showed me that she had six of those particular fruits on her table, ready to be prepared! So with her help I cracked it open, scooped out the fruit, and mixed in some brown sugar, garlic, chilis, salt and cumin. The kids ate it all. The next day Maia’s little friend’s big sister came over with two kot bel for us. She said that she heard the story — and these were just for us!
