Recipe Marathon: Day 13: Food Art: Mango Mania...

This got me thinking.. I mean 'real thinking'! .

...what should I do?..

mango shaped cookies?..

mango scented candles?..

something with beads .. (Oh no! I am pathetic at stitching too!)..

..finally, I ended up drawing these..

....few illustrations with crayons inspired from a travel magazine which I happen to browse through some time back!

Off these go to Indira's Food Art series with 'Mango Manthram' as the theme. A special thank you to Indira for taking me back to my good old school days and making me realize that I can still sketch! Yeh Yeh Yeh!

Mango Maama(i)

Mango(Leaves) Ballerina

Chotu Motu Mango Bhaiyya

Mango Juggler

Mr.Mango Mermaid

Though, I love all of these, my favorite is 'Mango Ballerina'..:D.. which one is ur favorite..? I am just curious to know which one get maximum votes..*wink*...!!

[EDIT]: For Recipe Marathon, I am supposed to blog about a 'recipe' today - a different variation of Cabbage Poriyal. U ask whats special with this dish?.. It has some unique ingredients which makes it spicier than usual bland variety.


Heat some oil in a wok, add in our usual tadka (Urad dal + Mustard seeds + Cumin seeds + Red Chillies), with some curry leaves. Let the, splutter and then add in boiled cabbage. Season with turmeric, salt, red chilli powder, sambhar powder, rasam powder and kandipodi.
Mix the contents well and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Serve hot.
