MANGALORE BONDA - Sapid Starter!

There are days when I somehow don't post anything for two or three weeks. I would then feel guilty about neglecting my space and cheer myself up to keep it active. At times.. I don't feel like looking at food pictures at all. One, for the fear of indulging too much  and two, a feeling of satiety sets in. So, I keep away from blogging and blog hopping. I am not sure how many bloggers go through this. I do this on and off but the feeling is short lived. I am also eager to know if anyone of you reading this has felt the same.

MANGO THOKKU- A spicy and tangy treat

Summer and Mangoes - This is an inexhaustible topic and one can go on and on talking about it and I don't even have to mention about the countless recipes we can make with this perfect summer fruit. The interesting factor is that both ripe and raw mangoes are favoured by all and this Mango Thokku/ Shredded Mango preserve recipe is no exception. Infused with simple and basic spices + seasoning gives an extra punch to tangy mangoes.
