Am back with a Banggg! Can’t believe itz been a year since I last posted ! Got really busy going back n forth around the world ;-).
Last May’13 I was in coorg for my cousins wedding, and this May’14 I am back again for my broie’s wedding :-). Allz well and now I got a beautiful SIL @ home. I simply love this month , not only because of wedding season also because I get to eat dozens of mangoes.
Mango : ‘King of fruits’ ,’The fruit of India’ – whatever you call it . It is everyone’s favorite.
Mmmmmmm… Mango Idly – A healthy eat !
I call this a winner ! This special recipe comes all the way from mumbai. Zillion thanks to Shakuntala aunty (my sisters MIL) for this
one which was a clear winner in every cooking competition .Also loved by everyone in the family. Thought will post this before we go – off season. I will be featuring this on a local channel next week.
