Bambangan pickles, anyone???

So, is it Bambangan season already?

  I was following newsfeed on Sandakan Kini when I saw someone selling Bambangan fruits. I never seen Bambangan in Sandakan before (seriously), so I got excited when I saw the post. The seller willing to do COD (cash on delivery) too and most importantly, it was cheap!!! 

 For RM10, I managed to get 5 pieces of big size Bambangan. At first, I planned to cook Pinasakan with the raw Bambangan but after a week of keeping it, it has turn half-ripped and not suitable for Pinasakan. 

  It's a waste of money to throw it away. So, I try to recall on how to make a Bambangan pickles. I remember helping my late grandma grating the Bambangan seeds and slowly the ingredients popped out. Yea, sometimes we tent to forget the simplest things in life huh...

Grated Bambangan seed
