[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
" Trapa natans is an aquatic plant and (water chestnut) belongs to the Trapaceae family. The fruits are boiled or roasted. The fruits are a good source of nutrition with 16% starch and 2% protein. When raw, the fruits are juicy and crisp, when cooked, the flesh softens but it still remains crunchy. Various species of the plant, under the same genus of Trapa, are grown across the world. In China, Japan and Korea, the kernels of Trapa bicornis are eaten boiled or are used in many regional dishes. They are also preserved in honey and sugar. In India and Pakistan, flour is made out of the seeds of Trapa bispinosa, which is known to the people of Kashmir as singhara nut. "
