Weddings .. Eating out and more ..

The last couple of weeks had been busy attending weddings .. Eating out ( with family, colleagues, friends) during different occasions, visiting relatives .. A short trip to my native .. Meeting up with cousins, whom I haven't met in more than two decades ..

Lots to share with very little energy .. Will take time to kick back to regular blogging .. Also catch up on my food tales at Shalini's Food tales.

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 ??
