I am super happy to bring you this pretty mango puliyogare gojju. Right now, as I type the post facing my laptop I am missing cozy winter season. Those of you living under HOT SUN would know how cozy the winter season feels. As I live in UAE, which is a hub of SAND and SUN, I realize and appreciate the cold and chilly weather. Without such seasonal cozy feelings of weather, life here is very much suffocating and dry. So as I am bracing myself for May/Summer/hot days ahead, I’m feeling 99% grateful for those cozy, cold months.
The most unpleasant thing in the summer months is to cook inside the kitchen which literally feels like sitting inside the oven. The heat from the stove, the sweat and sultry feeling is going to be absolutely unmanageable. In order to brace the situation, dusting, cleaning and servicing the Air Conditioner have already begun. Because it is the AC that works 24×7 and keeps us shielded from scorching SUN.
Much has been said about summer and sun, lets turn towards summer produce that make our food life palatable. Yes it’s the Raw mango that has transformed in to delicious spice paste(mango puliyogare gojju) here. Traditionally this is prepared using tamarind and I have replaced it by sour grated mango. The mango, king of fruits has played it’s trick in this recipe and puliyogare tastes way too yummy. I would say it’s a meal builder because if you have a jar full of this masala paste in your refrigerator, then quickly whipping up a meal is easy like a breeze. Though it takes 40 minutes of your kitchen time, believe me you would feel the time spent is worth ever. I usually stock such meal builders (like this vegetable bhath mix) to make my cooking life hassle free.
