Posted by Picasa Summer is on its way, when we think of summer we remember the hottest fruit of summer yummy Mango. In India we have the mangoes first on the day of Ugadi fest
We consume mangoes from that day in many different ways.

In Andhra we use raw mangoes for making Avvakaya, which is our most famous pickle there is no house that does not do this pickle. I have been watching my mom and grand mom since all these years to make this pickle they do all the hungamaJ. The Kids enjoy eating raw mangoes dipping the slices in the salt and pepper mixer. If we talk about mangoes we have a long list coming on so let stop it here.

As INDIRA started the JIHVA and she has decide this month’s topic about Mango. So I want to have this week as mango week. Here is the first posting on Mangoes.


1 Cup Mango plup.
2 Cups Ginger-ale (Even Canada dry also can be used).
Pinch of cardamom powder for flour.
Ice cubes.
Mint leaves to garnish.


Take a large bowl, mix the first three ingredients and serve with ice cubes and garnish with mint.
