Mango pineapple chutney recipe - This is a sweet, sour and hot chutney prepared with pineapple and mango. Whenever I prepare this chutney, I prepare jawari rotis to eat with it. This can also be had with bread, chapathi and dosa. For the better taste the chutney is to be cooked in the juice of pineapple and mango.

Mango rasayana recipe - Mango rasayana is a coconut based traditional dessert of Karnataka prepared with mango, coconut and jaggery. It has creamy texture and delicious sweet taste of jaggery and mango. Coconut paste and the cardamoms enhance the flavour. To get a smooth texture, coconut milk can be substituted in place of coconut paste. But we like the rough texture. So I have used coconut paste. I make rasayana with mashmelon (chibud), muskmelon, ripe banana (plantain) and mango. This is one of the best desserts I like to make often. You can prepare it within few minutes and during mango season it is usually served as a dessert after meal. Some even like to enjoy with pooris.
Here is how to make mango rasayana with step by step pictures.

Lauki paratha recipe - Today I have come up with an easy to prepare lauki or bottle gourd paratha recipe. White gourd is a healthy vegetable which many do not like. Therefore I have prepared paratha out of this vegetable which is not only healthy but tasty too. This is a versatile dish which can be eaten at the time of breakfast, lunch or dinner. The dough of this paratha can be stored in the fridge for two days. It tastes great when eaten with ghee, spicy curry, sabzi, curd, pickle, chutney or tomato ketchup along with some drink like buttermilk or lassi. The stuffed parathas can also be made using the same lauki mixture.

Mango barfi using pedha recipe - Mango barfi is my favorite sweet dish. There are so many varieties of barfis available in the sweet shop. But home made is always best as we combine the ingredients as per our choice to suit the taste. Usually I make barfis using khava or mawa. But I made this barfi using pedha for a special reason. Our family friend Milind and Bhavana's daughter Shreya scored 95% in 10th std. CBSE Board. Congratulations Shreya!! They came to visit us with a boxful of chitale bandhu's famous rajkot pedha. Thank you Milind and Bhavana for so much love and affection. We ate few pedhas and I used some of them to make this lovely soft and delicious mango barfi. You can add up some soaked cashew nut paste to the mango pulp to make it rich and creamy.

Mango, lemon, ginger recipe - This mango juice is a tangy and sweet juice made with mango, ginger and lemon juice. This is equally delicious like panna, mango milk shake and mango lassi. Kids like mango juice and variety too. Therefore as a variety, I have added tanginess and flavor to the mango juice by adding ginger and lemon juice. This juice is hundred times better than the juice available in the market which contains preservative and lots of sugar. If you do not like the flavor of ginger and taste of lemon, skip these two items and get pure mango juice.

Mango lassi recipe - Mango lassi is a delicious and nutritious drink for all seasons. During summer, chilled mango lassi is always better than any aerated drink. When I am tired, stressed and hungry I make mango lassi in a hurry with readily available yogurt stored in the refrigerator. Being an any season drink, during other seasons also we can have it at room temperature. No need to add ice cubes if it is chilled in the refrigerator. Because of ice cubes it becomes slightly watery. To avoid change in taste, you may avoid adding ice cubes.

Gavarfali ki sabzi recipe - A simple side dish prepared with humble and down to earth cluster beans It is good source of dietary fibers. Being rich in fiber it digests slowly and helps in weight loss. Fibers help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Cluster beans are slightly bitter in taste, but the addition of coconut and jaggery reduces the bitterness of cluster beans in the sabzi. This sabzi is usually served with roti, chapati or rice and curry.
I personally like to have it with rice.

Banana mango milkshake recipe - Chilled banana mango milkshake is certainly a pleasant drink during hot summer. Absolutely a power punch drink for active persons as it provides energy and nutrition. This milkshake can be a substitute for breakfast. If you do not find time to prepare breakfast, prepare this quick milkshake, drink it and stay energetic till lunch. It is very delicious, healthy and easy to make as well. It can be made within few minutes. I have skipped adding sugar to the milkshake as both the alphonso mango and banana are very sweet. However, you can adjust the ingredients to suit your taste.
