MUNAKKA ( The Currant)
This dried fruit known to increase the Haemoglobin levels is obtained by drying the cultivar obtained from Grape species Zante-Currant.
Zante-Currant is usually the Blank Corinth grape, with a diameter not more than 4mm, Thus smaller than raisins.
Now, there is a misconception in the minds of people that MUNAKKA is the Kali Kishmish. Currants where most of the times are classified in berries (the other berries other than grapes), raisins are always known to be extracted from the grapes. But what we need to know is Grapes technically are berries, however, this is not known in our lame terminology.
The fresh fruits of Zante-Currants are very small and sweet, giving you an intense grape flavour.
Benefits of Munakka:
