Kandankathiri is one of my late grandfathers favorite plant, he used to always insist that we include this plant in our cooking. Kandankathiri is called Yellow Fruit Night-Shade in English and it’s botanical name is Solanum Xanthocarpum (old name) and new name is Solanum Surattense | Solanum Virginianum. It is called Kantakari in Sanskrit. The whole plant is covered in thorns and the fruit looks like small version of our egg plant but with thorns.
