This blog is dedicated to Mum, my greatest mentor. It is a compilation of simple recipes - Bengali, Indian, Burmese and Continental, among others. All of these recipes have been tested in my kitchen. Most use everyday ingredients found at your local market, but some use specialty ingredients available at Asian and/or Indian markets. Comments are welcome and members are invited to send in any recipes they would like to share.
This is a delicious, refreshing dessert that hits the spot on a hot and humid summer day. Mango pulp is easy to make with a ripe mango that is blended with sugar. But, lucky for me, the pulp of alphonso mangoes is available in cans at the Indian market which saves me the time it would take to peel, cube and blend a fresh mango. The mango pulp is sweet enough for me but, if need be, more sugar can be added according to taste.
