Vegan Mango Bread

Blogging Marathon# 47: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes Dish: Vegan Mango Bread We are starting our last and final week of blogging marathon for this year today. My theme for this week is ‘Bookmarked Recipes’. I have so many recipes in my bookmarks that it is even impossible to make them all in this life time. Also I don’t think I will ever be able to organize them in a proper way to actually see what I have in there. All these recipes are bookmarked all over the place — some on Pinterest, some on Foodgawker, some on…

Thai Sticky Rice with Mango

We are exploring the beautiful northern part of Thailand for this month’s ‘International Food Challenge’. Northern Thailand is blessed with the best scenery in the kingdom, it is the region with forests and mountains, rivers and waterfalls. It is the home to Thailand’s hill tribes, whose conventions and customs differ from mainstream Thai culture. Rice is the staple of this region and they use both ordinary and glutinous varieties. Food is seasoned with fish sauce and chili peppers. Our host for this month, Sangeetha Priya, gave us some amazing Northern Thai dishes to try. After looking through the dishes, I…

Mango Fool

Blogging Marathon# 41: Week 1/ Day 2 Theme: Summer Specials Dish: Mango Fool Summer and Mangoes are like night and darkness (at least in my mind 🙂 I wait for summer to enjoy mangoes to its fullest. There is only one person I know who doesn’t like mango or at least he thinks he doesn’t like them because he never tasted them — my super picky 6 year old son. He is reluctant to even taste it, but he LOVES mango lassi, so I’m sure when he tastes a good mango he’ll like it — hopefully that happens soon. My…

Mango Lassi

Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 2/ Day 3 Theme: Mango Mania Dish: Mango Lassi This post is possibly the least planned and last minute one in the past couple of months. I didn’t have any mango recipes in the drafts and neither had I planned for anything. I was dilly-dallying until the last minute today as if miraculously the post will ‘post’ itself. But one good thing we did was to buy a case of ripe mangoes from the Indian store this weekend and the yellow beauties inspired me to make one of my kids favorite, Mango Lassi.

Mango & Roasted corn Salsa

Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 2/ Day 1 Theme: Mango Mania Dish: Mango & Roasted Corn Salsa We are starting our second week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘Mango Mania’. We get mangoes here in the states all through the year, even though the quality of the off-season mangoes is questionable. I don’t buy ripe mangoes from regular grocery store unless it looks really really good. I like the ripe mangoes we get at the Indian store and last year we totally enjoyed the mango season. I’m so looking forward to summer for some juicy,…

Mango Custard

Here’s a delicious dessert recipe for any occasion. I made it a while back and wanted to share with everyone on the eve of Valentines Day. If you are still looking for something quick and easy to make for Valentines day, then this recipe is for you. Unlike other Valentines day desserts which are either made of chocolate or strawberry, this is made with mango — which in my opinion is more exotic than he aforementioned ingredients 🙂 Valentines day or not, this is a great dessert that can be made ahead of time. Fruit Custard is quite famous in…
