{NEW #RECIPE ALERT} Aam ka Panna (Sweet and sour Indian raw mango cooler) - http://www.monsoonspice.com/2017/06/aam-panna-recipe-indian-raw-mango-cooler.html (link in profile)

Aam ka Panna is a very popular raw mango recipe from the northern India. It is a refreshing raw mango cooler flavoured with spices and good helping of fresh mint. It is this Aam ka Panna, with its sweet tangy flavour makes it extremely rejuvenating and its health benefits make it a go to drink and a must try recipes for the summers. Aam Panna is consumed in the sweltering summer days as it acts as a coolant, rehydrates body and provides the essential electrolytes lost during the hot weather. A glass of this drink in a summer afternoon can combat fatigue and energize a person. I beg you to give this recipe a try before we bid adieu to the mango season. If there is one drink you want to try this summer, then let this Aam Panna be the one. Trust me, you will not regret spending few mins of your time and energy to make this absolutely refreshing drink. #monsoonspice #summer #drinks #drinkstagram #hautecuisines #stilllife #stilllifegallery #stilllifephotography #desi_diaries #indianfood #indiancuisine #desifood #healthydrink #mango #lonelyplanetindia #foodie #foodporn #foodpics #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodstagram #feedfeed #seasonalfood #instagood #instayum #instafood #instapic #foodtalkindia #indianfoodbloggers

It’s officially summer and for the last two weeks the heatwaves have swept across the nation. I am not very active on social media these days as it will be considered sin to spend time within the four walls. The windows and doors are wide open, and I spend most of my time pottering around the garden, laying on grass and snoozing under the perfect blue skies. My morning walks have become longer, walking in the woodlands under the protective umbrella of giant trees. The kitchen is the last place in my mind as ice creams and ice popsicles have officially become our meals and washing them with gallons of water to quench the thirst and to keep the body cool.

Apart from herb and berry flavoured waters, I find myself reaching out for a tall bottle of Lavancha (Khus roots or Vetiver) soaked water which I grew up drinking during hot summer months in my native of Udupi-Mangalore. Before this berry and herb infused waters became the rage, this khus root flavoured water has been used in India for millennia. The dried roots or the powdered roots of Lavancha/Vetiver/Khus grass is added to the large earthen/copper pots or bottles to naturally cool down the water. The water is quite refreshing and is mildly fragrant, making it one of my most favourite flavoured waters. You just need to wash and clean the dry roots to remove any soil particles and then soak it in a pot or bottle of water. You can use the roots for 4-5 days and then dry them and reuse them for 3-4 times. They are easily available in most parts of India, and you can buy them online stores like ebay and amazon.
Lavancha is a tall, tufted, perennial, scented grass with long narrow leaves and an abundant complex lacework of underground white roots and is mainly cultivated in the tropics, such as India, Tahiti, Java and Haiti. These Lavancha roots are also used in making sherbet. They are also used in making the mats, blinds, and hand held fans and are sprayed with water to keep the house cool during scorching Indian summers. They not only give rooms an exquisite fragrance but also keeps the insects away. (More info in comments below) (📷: @siakrishna Copyright of http://monsoonspice.com) #monsoonspice #summer

{NEW #RECIPE ALERT} BasaLe Soppina Koddel - http://www.monsoonspice.com/2017/06/basale-soppina-koddel-udupi-mangalorean.html (link in profile @siakrishna )

A kaleidoscope of images, people and colours flash in my mind as think of one dish that is very close to my heart. It is called BasaLe Soppina Kodhel or Kodhilu or Koddel, a simple coconut based #vegan #curry of Malabar spinach cooked in a freshly roasted spice paste and tempered with generous amount of garlic fried in coconut oil.

With the gloomy and windy rains, it feels more like cold autumn days than beginning of summer season and this BasaLe Soppina Koddel is perfect thing to cook and serve piping hot with some crispy akki rotti or ragi rotti or with just a bowl of rosematta (Kerala red rice) or white rice with a generous spoonful of desi ghee and a side of papad. It also goes well with some hot chapatti or shavige (rice string hoppers). Did I tempt you enough? If yes head over to blog to check the recipe, food story and more photographs. #monsoonspice #southindianfood #mangalorediaries #mangalore #food #veganrecipes #veganfoodshare #hautecuisines #lonelyplanetindia #dslrofficial #desi_diaries #indianfood #indiancuisine #indianfoodbloggers #desifood #desi #foodie #foodporn #foodpics #foodtalkindia #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodstagram #foodphotographer #recipeoftheday #instayum #instafood

Colour splash with some bling always helps to lift my spirit when the howling wind splatters rain drops in a size of little eggs against the window panes... It's a dull and grey day in our neck of woods with torrential rain weather forecast for the rest of the week. the temperature has dipped couple of degrees and the humidity has risen up, making it wee bit uncomfortable for me as I suffer another episode of migraine! I hope you are having a better day :) Take care guys...

{NEW #RECIPE ALERT} Raw Mango and Bottle Gourd Dal or Khatta Meetha Lauki-Aam Dal ~ http://www.monsoonspice.com/2017/06/raw-mango-and-bottle-gourd-dal-recipe.html (link in profile @siakrishna )

To celebrate the mango season, I made this simple and yet delicious dal. Making dal or Indian lentil soup with raw mangoes is no new concept as it is one of the most loved and celebrated dals during summers when mother nature blesses us with her bounty. Since I had lauki or bottle gourd, and also the fact that I love using them in dal, I added them along with raw mango and the result is creamy, summery Raw Mango and Bottle Gourd Dal or Khatta Meetha Lauki-Aam Dal. The recipe is simple, ingredients not too many and the flavours are amazing. Perfect dish to make this summer and serve it with a bowl of steaming rice topped with some pure desi ghee or just with some puffed rotis smeared with ghee or butter. Oh, a spoonful of pickle or papad takes this dish to another level. I, personally, love to eat it on its own as a bowl of hearty soup.

As evening unfolds , take a moment to remember the good things already in your life. Then with arms and heart open wide, gently move towards rest. As thoughts drift into your mind, carefully sort them. Those that are worthy and helpful will be used to shape your actions, and those that are unworthy and hurtful will be gently moved aside and forgotten.
