Chilled Mango Lassi Recipe


Definitely easy to make and absolutely delicious in my opinion, the mango lassi is one of the most popular drinks in India. The mango lassi is a mix of ingredients easy to find but of extreme importance to Indian culture if we think for example that the mango is the fruit with which we pay homage to the gods and represents fertility and this is declined in various ways, mostly symbolic. If you think you are absolutely right but a smoothie to make a difference is the spice but it is strict NO to using ice to make cool lassi otherwise it loses all its flavour.


In India, where the ayran is called lassi, there are many preparations refined with native spices and recipes very diverse: they can be sweet, with fruit, extract of cannabis and other products, even if the base is exactly that of ayran turkish style. Usually the ayran is served very cold to accompany grilled meat dishes or rice . It is considered the ideal drink to counteract the burning sensation date from very spicy foods.

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.
