Mango Pudding

Standard

When there was more and more mangoes, I love to try out some delicious recipes with those. This time it was Mango pudding. Just like that whenever I get irritated with something may be people, things, so and so, I enter kitchen and try to innovative a dish which struck my mind at that time. Got to prepare this on Last Friday night, which resulted with the smell of mango all over the kitchen.

Seafood Curry

Standard

The name of the dish itself will tell you that this dish is completely different from all other seafood dishes I have prepared, because I have induced both fish and prawns to this curry. Usually I never prepare by combining the seafood, this is my first try and the curry was too good. This would be a kids friendly curry, because of less spiciness in it and also they love it a lot. Let us move on to the recipe…
