Well hello there...
I hope you're having a great day.
😺😺😺
.
Today I got some interesting looking nut.
I can use it as additonal moustache. 😹
This is not a common thing I see, so I find it quite interesting. .
Mami told me this is called ling nut, or water caltrop, or water chestnut.
.
Mom told me it's ling kok or caltrop or kacang tanduk.
(yeah it's her on the comment below) 😑

Riddle solved: these devil seeds come from water caltrop, Trapa natans. Their 3D shape is pretty unusual, as they have pointy hooks and velvety texture. And they are edible!

Zagadka rozwiązana: te diabelskie nasiona należą do kotewki orzecha wodnego. Każde z nich ma 4 ostre haczyki i aksamitną powierzchnię. No i można je jeść!

Ever see a water caltrop before? Me either. So I made a gelatine mould out of it and cast it in chocolate! #waterchestnut #buffalonut #batnut #devilpod #lingnut #linkok #lingkionut #singhara #watercaltrop #mouldmaking #chocolate #cocoafortunato

This man is selling Indian 'water chestnuts', also known as ling nuts, water caltrops, buffalo nuts, bat nuts and my favourite, devil pods (that's about all the Halloween chat you're going to get from me)! Not to be confused with Chinese water chestnuts, this food is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine and studies have made connections with it having antibacterial and neuroprotective properties. #LingNut #DevilPod #AsHalloweenAsImGoingToGet #Jodhpur #Rajasthan #India

A water caltrop - also known as water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, devil pod, ling nut, and singhara, amongst other names. Apparently the reason water caltrops are eaten as part of the Chinese Mid Autumn festivities (apart from the fact that this is the season for them) is that the Chinese for bat 🦇has the sound 'fu' in it, which is the word for luck. #watercaltrop #buffalonut #batnut #devilpod #lingnut #singhara #菱角 #chinesetradition #midautumnfestival #蝙蝠

Odd Folks (@stuff_duck_company)

A while back, I came across a pair of pods, devil pods, as some call them. They were given to me from a friend of my children's father. I loved them, but I stashed them away, to never see the light of day till just recent, when I unearthed them. So, tonight, I made the first of my Odd Devil Folk. The more I look at him, the more he grows on me. Hahaha!!! Devil Folk WIP made from water caltrop pods, aka Devil pods or nuts, water chestnut, buffalo nut, bat nut, ling nut, lin kok, ling kio nut, and singhara.

#SINGARA #WATERCHESTNUT #Fruit
The #watercaltrop is any of three extant species of the genus #Trapa : Trapa natans , T. bicornis and the endangered Trapa rossica. It is also known as water #chestnut#buffalonut#batnut#devilpod#pod , #lingnut , lin kok, ling kio nut , or #singhara .
In India, water chestnut is called Singhara, and in Bangladesh , it is called #Paniphal .
The species are floating annual #aquaticplant , growing in slow-moving water up to 5 m deep, native to warm temperate parts of #Eurasia and #Africa . They bear ornately shaped #fruits , which in the case of T. bicornisresemble the head of a bull or the silhouetteof a flying bat. Each fruit contains a single very large, starchy seed. T. natans and T. bicornis have been cultivated in China and the #india#Indian subcontinent for at least 3,000 years for the edible seeds.
Some of the #health #benefits of singhara or Indian water chestnut (#Trapabispinosa) are:

It is #cooling and is an ideal aid to counter summer heat.The juice of water chestnut relieves the feeling of #nausea and also improves the #appetite in kids.It relieves swellings and cleanses the blood.They are used along with #coriander , rice, noodles, ginger, sesame oil and bamboo shoots, etc. and give the taste of #crunchy and crispy . In Thailand, it is the important component of famous Thai desert ‘tabtim krob’. In the developed countries, it is used along with bacon strips as an hors d’oeuvre and mix with drinks in Indonesia. They are used in many forms such as powder, juice, cake, flour, sliced, #fried, eaten #raw and #steamed .

Either/OR (@eitherorcafe)

Last week to try our Devils Nog coffee mocktail that's featured in the October issue of @pomomagazine! This last batch we made has a more prominent persimmon flavor since they are finally in season. The base of the drink is made using cold brew and a scary looking caltrop called Devils Pod to give it egg nog like depth without actually using eggs, so you can order it vegan. Remember, our mocktails are part of our "for here" drinks only menu because part of the experience is taking your time to enjoy this wonderful affordable luxury we all love called coffee. #devilsnog #portlandmonthly #coffeemocktail #drycoffeecocktail #devilspod #batnut #lingnut #hailsatan #666 #halloweendrinks #witchcraft #satanlovescoffee
