Whenever we have boiled cassava (see note) for breakfast, my children ask for cherry umman as the side dish. I am only too glad to comply as it takes less than 15 minutes to make this marvelous dipping curry.
So I hasten to the acerola cherry bush to look for ripe, red acerola cherries. You can have cherry umman as a wonderful side dish to baked or mashed potatoes, to rice, or as a dipping curry for dosas.
Acerola cherries (also called Barbados, West Indian, Wild Crepe Myrtle cherries, Malpighia Emarginata) are so rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that they are excellent for good health, the more so, as they can be grown fully organic, without any pesticides.
Be sure to try this tangy, yummy, pickle-like curry and enjoy!
