This is the stuff of schoolhood. It was the first time I was seeing these 'regi pandlu'(in Telug, botanically called Zizyphus jujuba) with salt and chilli powder, though! Back home, we would always check them for worms first and then eat them. On Bhogi, the day before Sankranti, children are feted with these - they are poured over the children's heads. There is a bigger variety too.
