If I ever choose to overlook my favourite Mangoes(which is a task in itself) this summer season does give us some lovely fruits here in India. Each different in taste,texture and appearance, just like India..Diverse and yet common in character ! I remember enjoying juicy “Tadgolas”, a fruit native to the coastal belts of India, and some luscious Lychees with my cousins during vacations. We had a white apple or water apple tree in our compound…a blooming tree implied vacation time.I still get nostalgic when I get back home.Sometimes, I terribly miss my home , especially for the ease and convenience with which fresh and seasonal fruits and veggies were available. Surprisingly,in this scorching heat in Indore, miles away from Mumbai, I still got my hands on lovely plum lychees..thanks to the enterprising young entrepreneurs, who hand delivered every and any fruit and vegetable asked for! With the heat already knocking out the hunger, I chose to fix a quick salad for lunch. The fruits and the salad leaves are not only refreshing, but filling too. You may add other summer fruits , preferably citrus to the salad as well. Planning to add  Tadgolas and White apples and a few cuts of fresh tender coconut when I make this one again for my parents in  Mumbai!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
