Aam ka Chunda is a famous sweet and spicy Gujarati pickle/preserve/condiment made with green mangoes. It is quite popular across the North, and it is served as a side along with roti, paratha, and theplas. Today I am going to share the instant version or the stove top version of the popular aam ka chunda, and it is a zero oil recipe. :-)
The next recipe I am going to share in the series of special summer drinks is the humble Shikanji. Shikanji is a simple Indian style lemonade/limeade. It’s a sweet and spicy drink prepared with lemon/lime. It is known by different names like Shikanjvi, shikanjbi, shikanjbeen and also Nimbu Paani which means lemon water in Hindi.
I am going to share one more mango recipe today, but this time it is with green mangoes. It is the traditional drink – Aam Panna. This khatta-meeta / sweet and sour mango juice is loaded with flavors, and sure it is a fantastic relish. I won’t call mine as an authentic recipe, as I went with a different spice mix that we prefer. So here comes my version of Aam Panna. :-)
I am back with a mango recipe. This time it is the Mango Jam. The delicious mango jam will sure brighten up your breakfast table, and it is a perfect side for your toast or bagel. All you need is some fresh mango, sugar and some lemon juice and zest to prepare this jam.
Glad to be back in my space, after a short break. Today I am going to share a special summer recipe – crisp, delicious and refreshing – Lemon Curd Sharbat/sherbet with rose syrup. You can make the lemon curd well ahead, and it stays good for more than one month. Once you have the lemon curd ready, you can whip this up in less than 5 minutes. If you/your kids are planning for lemonade stalls this summer, this is a great recipe for you all. :-)
The mango season has begun and if I can find fresh ones here in the US, needless to say about in India. :-) So let’s kick start this mango season with this simple single serving shrikhand recipe. This mango or aam shrikhand is popularly known as amrakhand. All you need is yogurt, mango puree, and sugar to prepare this yummylicious dessert. The other ingredients are entirely optional, and you can adjust as per your preference. Today I am going to share how to make this amrakhand with Greek yogurt.
Earlier I posted two healthy, diabetic friendly recipes under the holi recipes theme. Today I am going to post a sinfully sweet and delicious kulfi recipe. The ice-cream is the combination of blanched almonds, condensed milk, pistachios, kesar, milk, and cream. How can it go wrong? No way right? Here comes the gorgeous, kids friendly Almond Kulfi recipe.
This is a simple and a protein packed pudding prepared with mango puree, milk and with Chia Seeds. Last year I combined mango with couple other fruits and posted the breakfast smoothie recipe -mango, lychee and pineapple smoothie with chia seeds. But this time I just wanted to use mango and prepare this simple and yummy pudding recipe.
I think I have posted quite a few Lassi recipes. :-) This is not a lassi recipe but another summer recipe following the concept of “Make Vadagams When the Sun Shines” – Lady’s Finger / Okra Fryums or Vendaikai Vathal or Sun dried Okra. It’s a super simple recipe and this can be prepared in bulk and stocked up. These okra fryums can be used in Kuzhambu varieties or it can be fried and served as rice accompaniment. I personally love it with yogurt rice.
I am back with one more lassi recipe. I have already posted Avocado Lassi and Spicy Tamarind Lassi. Here is one more sweeter lassi recipe prepared with Nungu or Ice Apple or Palm Fruit and lychee. This is a super refreshing lassi and with the dash of rose syrup it tastes heavenly and it’s a perfect summer drink.
