Laal vaal is a speciality of South Gujarat. They are cultivated there and are considered very sweet in taste (probably, compared to other vaals). The outer peel is quite thin and is edible if you have gotten them from a reliable source. or you can remove the peels if you prefer. Many times, it is coated with oil - generally castor oil - which acts as a natural preservative as well as a mild laxative.
