Parwal

Parwal grows from a vine plant, similar to cucumbers; its mild flavour can draw spices in, making it a delicious addition to all curries and pickles. Shana Parwal may be used immediately from frozen, making them a tidy and convenient way of enjoying the vegetable at its best.

Our vegetables are frozen close to the time of harvest to ensure they retain a higher level of vitamins and nutrients. Absolutely no water is added during the IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) process, providing you with nature’s best.
