Sohphlang – A Unique Tuber of Health Meghalaya

Sohphlang – A Unique Tuber of Health Meghalaya

Health Benefits
Rich in phosphorus and protein this pale white, shapeless produce is not very attractive to look at. But this seasonal vegetable (or should we say fruit?) is much loved for its crunchy taste. Not many eat it thinking it is good for them, but because they love its feel on the tongue and down the gullet.
