“Dry Fruits are the fruits which have been dried of their water contents” so simple.
Earlier I used to think that Almonds, Dates, Walnuts, Raisins, Cashew, Figs etc. are all Dry fruits,but I was wrong. Most of us eat Cashews with Dates, and Almonds with Raisins, no doubt thesecombinations are delicious but they are digestive disasters, you are bound to have digestionproblems eating like that. Such combinations are not good for health.
