Guessing Game

We went out during lunch time to Science Park for our usual walk to unwind. It was a perfect blue sky and weather was nicely cool at 15C. This time of the year the walk is pleasant as the autumn color display in it's hue of golden brown, amber red and hinge of yellow everywhere. Well get the picture. One of the tree with it's fruit caught our attention, we were debating it's some kind of fruit, yes some kind of fruit. Mind giving a shot at guessing what it is? No prize for the winner though. It definitely look lovely for my photography prop I think:-) .

Tonite, I'm not going to make any specific dish using that yellow fruit. But feeling rather nostalgic about a dish my mom used to make for us. It's simple to prepare and handy to eat apart from being a deep fried dish. Well, well ...... I do eat healthily most of the time, right? Yes I am going to make Malaysian prawn fritter.
