Photobucket

Yipeee....Mango season is back! With the first rain before ugadi, we are all set to eat those yummy, juicy, tasty mangoes in all avtars. Tangy ones in rice, sour ones in pickle, sweet n ripe ones in dips..it is all Mango at home.

All you need is

Mangoes (fully ripe) : 4
Sugar as per taste if mangoes are not sweet (which does not happen most of the times)
Cardamom powder : 1/2tsp
Bananas: 2 (cut into small pieces)

1.Wash mangoes nicely. Peel the skin with your hands. Soak the skin in water, do not throw them. Repeat the same with all mangoes.
2.Take the fruit in a large pan and hand squeeze all these fruits. break down larger lumps if there are any.
3. If the seed has any fruit adhered to it, soak them along with those mango skin. Now squeeze all the juice from skin and seed using your hands. Do not apply more pressure while doing this. Add the juice obtained from squeezing the skin and seed to mango pulp.
4.Mix rest of the ingrediants with the mango juice. Chill and serve with hot holige/puran poli

I've never heard about this before, but it sure looks very delicious. Especially when you say squeeze the mangoes with your hand, wow, I wish I can fly to India to eat those ripe mangoes.

Maybe you should participate in the Taste of Yellow event, featuring yellow colored recipes. In case you are not aware of it, here's the link:

@Namratha,
:) certain dishes hold fond and nice memories with family. Ugadi, holige and seekarane is one such dish which holds good memories of new year. Glad to hear that you also feel the same.
@Divya Vikram,
:D I actually googled granola recipes from 2-3 blogs and then tried out granola bars. Your blog was among them.
@Madhu,
Thanks for letting me know about the event. I will surely participate.
