The fruit of the sapodilla (known as chikoo or chiku in India) looks like a brown kiwi fruit and has a dry caramel flavour. The last time I was in India my cousin's wife Aarti made me a chikoo milkshake. I remember loving the combination of caramel and malt flavours and thought I would share it with you. It is completely different to anything you will have tasted previously and so I hope you take the time to seek it out.
