The aroma of masala chai, piping hot samosas, crispy pakoras and, of course, the tart and juicy Jamun or the Indian wild plum -- monsoons in India are made of these.

We can bestow some extra points to this beloved blackish-purple fruit for fond childhood memories of purple-stained tongues and for its health benefits too. Rich in iron, potassium and Vitamin C, the pulpy fruit is used in Ayurveda and is recommended for diabetics.

Few edible pleasures can match the sensation of biting into a shiny, ripe jamun with a dash of salt. But there are other ways in which the fruit can be savoured. We've listed five below:
