Mango


Hello everybody.. Days have just been flying and i find myself staring at another weekend.. hurray!! Not that other days r not a weekend to me.. ;-)

N today was a terrific day cos i got to eat mango mousse as much as i wanted at a lunch buffet.. We went to this tight little place called "Indian wok" which indeed is a favourite place of ours. And wasn't i happy.. to c that the desert had my favourite item on it..

I am crazy abt mangoes.. I can have it for breakfast, dinner, lunch with tea, with bread, rice, noodles whatever!!

Pity this march i miss them soo much.. Its mango season now..Though we do get mangoes here, not the enormous variety from which u get to choose, back in sweet old India.. boo boo

N my naughty little sister is making me J describing how she had all my moms masterpiece mango delicacies.. Juicy ripe mangoes.. see wat power they got.. can even come between sisters ;-) Aint they dressed to kill.. slurp slurp!!

I am also mango crazy, Diya and recently I discovered the Altuafo (sp?) mangoes from Mexico...while they cannot compare to the Alphonso mangoes from back home, they are probably the best mangoes I have eaten this side of the world. The next time you see some in the food market, buy a couple and tell me what you think.

Maddy said...

well well...they are going to have a mango fair soon in DC and then you will start to see indian mangoes in shops (were banned until recently). We found a box of kilichundan filipino mangoes the other day, at artesia - was just so so...nothing like the variety mohanlal sings about.or the malgova.

diyadear said...

lotus, thanks for the info... will surely buy those...
maddy, u mean they r no more banned in US.. wow thats gr8 news...aana koduthallum aasha kodukaruthe..(hope u can read malayalam ;))

Bharath said...

Ps said...

diyadear said...

ithu kollam - malayalam vayikkanum parayanum ariyatha malayali undo? undengil njan aa groupil ninnalla. nattil valarnu padicha alu thanne!!! though i speak many other bhashas...
the ban on mangoes was lifted by His majesty G Bush when he went to India last year. but the hurdles were cleared only this month from what i heard...

Maddy said...
