    There are two varities in bimbal or karmbal .One is the smooth one , of which leela has given the photograph. Other one is ridged one ...easily available in India.These sour fruits are used to make pickle and used in curries to give sour taste . The ridged one is available in the grocery shop in the US . This is called STAR FRUIT. dear leea, have you tried the recipe with this ridged bimbal? As it is of the same family I am going to try it with the star fruit.The smooth one is not available here.

    hi leela
    The one we get here is much much bigger than the one we get in India.Its about 5" length and 2" wide and juicy aswell. I will certainly give my FB after trial.
