Raw Mango Ice Lollies

Mango, the king of fruits is available only during summer and sweet and sour raw mango ice lollies can give the perfect refreshments during hot hot summer. No artificial color is added in these lollies. Raw mango is used to make these ice lollies together with some mint leaves, sugar, salt and some mild spices. Just blend all the ingredients and transfer into ice pop or ice lolly molds. If you don't have ice lolly molds, you can use paper cups and wooden sticks.

Instant Green Chilli Pickle in Mustard Recipe

Hey!  I'm back again with another Green chilli pickle. Hope you are not bored with my continuous pickle recipes. Summer is meant for pickling and I have still many pickles to made in my mind. Hope you liked my previous green chilli pickle recipe. Today I'm going to share an instant green chilli pickle recipe which you can serve to your guests instantly after making. This green chilli pickle is very easy to prepare. The taste of this pickle is hot and sour.  This is similar to the chilli chutney that is usually served in marriage parties. I'm using medium hot Indian variety of  green chillies for making this Instant pickle. Green chillies are dipped into the mustard seeds' paste and the use of vinegar makes the pickle sour to taste. You can serve this pickle with rice or roti (Indian bread)  as a side dish,  but I like to have this pickle with fritters (pakoras) too.

Green Chilli Pickle

Hey!  I'm back again with another Indian style pickle recipe. Today I'm going to share a simple recipe of green chilli pickle. Do you know that green chillies are rich in dietary fiber. Well, green chillies are one of the must ingredient of Indian cooking. Slit,  sliced,  chopped or diced, we like to add green chillies in our cooking.  Green chillies are also often served as raw. As green chillies are available throughout the year,  we may not need to preserve it by pickling.  But Indian pickles are more than just preserving.  Because of the use of oil and spices, the pickles become more flavourful and we like to have pickles with rice or roti (Indian bread) in lunch or dinner as a side dish. 

There are many different ways of making green chilli pickle.  This pickle is hot and sweet in taste.
