Mango Mania

Come summer and its time for mangoes to adorn the shelves at home and market. My favourite of the lot has always been "pathuri" , a variety that is specially available only at my native place Mayiladuthurai which has invariably made us trip to my native every summer for the last few years.


I love dining at home during mango season, for the variety of dishes my grand mom makes from mangoes .. mangai pachadi, manga thokku, Mango sambar, Raw Mango, Mango pickle , Manga sadham(mango rice) .. my favourite of them is mango pachadi and mango thokku .. sweet sour and tangy !

Whats your favourite dish made of Mango ??

Shalu, I like everything Mango - but like you I luv the Mango Pachadi as well as the thokku :) Nothing to beat the combo of தயிர் சாதம் & மாங்காய் தொக்கு :)
