The seeds of Chironji (Charoli) have a wonderful taste and are considered to be a delicacy in India. Chironji is an evergreen tree. After the hard shell is cracked, the stubby seed within is as soft as a pine nut and known as Charoli.
Charoli tastes just like almonds and is usually added to sweets dishes like kheers, halwas and kulfis. They are also used in Ayurvedic medicines, harvested from a tree called Buchanania Lanzan.
