Despite of its awesome taste and benefits, we all do not know that the shell has various benefits, too.
Yes, the shell! It might be the tasteless part of this fruit but this part is healthier than the fruit itself. Unfortunately, we tend to throw this part of the fruit.
Moreover, in South Asia and USA this shell is tossed in salads. Among many things, the shell has vitamin A, C, B6 and magnesium, potassium and zinc as well.
