Kepala Kerbau

Trapa bicornis
The water caltrop , water chestnut or Singhara (सिंघाडा) is either of two species of the genus Trapa: Trapa natans and Trapa bicornis.

Both species are floating annual aquatic plants,
growing in slow-moving water up to 5 meters deep, native to warm temperate parts of Eurasia and Africa. They bear ornately shaped fruits that resemble the head of a bull, each containing a single very large starchy seed.

Available at Jusco... certain time especially 1 month before Chinese New Year.

Other name: Osbeck horn nut, ‘China horn nut’ or ‘Ling Kok’

Ini resepi & extra info yang hasil dari carian saya 'google' ke sana ke mari.

Black Horn Nut, Bull Head, Bat Nut, Devil Pod, Buffalo Nut
is the seed pod of an Oriental aquatic plant.
They are toxic if uncooked
but they are delicous (edible, of course) when cooked with rice and vegetable.

Many love to eat them boiled just like roasted chestnut.
They taste like chestnut but have more texture. An average nut is about 3 inches long.

Cover them in water and some salt, bring to a boil and simmer for 25-30 minutes.
