Maybe translating each item into English would help non-Indians know what the items are. Shanti/Mary-Anne

The photo of water chestnuts is very interesting and looks so different from what we buy called waterchestnuts. I wonder if they are the same. http://tinyurl.com/3x8wr3 and http://chinesefood.about.com/library/bld_w.htm (click for photo on link) I have never seen the water chestnut in your photo. Is it grown in the water? Very interesting! Shanti/Mary-Anne

Yes Shanti, Indian Water Chestnuts/Caltrops (other names include Sringataka, Jalaphala, Trikonaphala) grows in water in tanks, ponds and lakes. The aquatic herb (the fruit kernel is edible) grows throughout India.
