GNP nature walk 8: Cissus quandrangularis

Have you eaten south indian applams? (papads in hindi) - then chances are that you have had some cissus quandrangularis. Called 'pirandai' in tamil, it is used in applam making.

Do you know of any other uses ? If so, do comment!

Do you know which part of the tree is used for this appalam making? I guess it is the bark. Right?

i thought it was these pod like structures that you see in the picture, but am not too sure.
