Mavinakayi saaru recipe -  This is a simple and easy to prepare curry made with coconut, raw mangoes, chilly powder etc. I have been making mango curry for so many years during mango season. I like the tangy taste in the curry most. So I am sharing the recipe which I prepared today and we all enjoyed with fried papads and hot rice. This is a coconut based curry made in South Karnataka homes with different versions. Adding raw mangoes instead of tamarind in fish curry is also a traditional way to use it in curries.

White gourd coriander leaves 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 burfi using pedha recipe - Mango burfi  is my favorite sweet dish. There are so many varieties of burfis 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 burfis using khawa or mawa. But I made this burfi 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 burfi. You can add up some soaked cashew nut paste to the mango pulp to make it rich and creamy.

Mango lemon ginger juice 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.
