Palmyra sprouts (Thati Thegalu)

Popular in South India and Sri Lanka, palmyra palms are famous for the summer ice apples. But, the white kernel of the fruit, if left for germination, has its uses. This germinated seed can be cut open to get a spongy snack that tastes like a sweet water chestnut. The sprouts (Thattu Thegalu) could be roasted or boiled to make a very healthy snack.

Today, nobody has the time to dig in and get palmyra sprouts for you. But Sterling Palavelli Godavari is bringing this age-old snack to you at Palakollu. The tour captains at the resort will take you for a scenic drive and drop you at a palm grove where you can taste Thati Thegalu.
