The Season of spice & Sweet Mangoes

Is there A season in the 24/7 & 365 days culture.

Read this as it unfolds……

Though the Conservative households in India religiously follow the norm of Pickle making during Summer, must we rephrase this as “throwback summer” , time associated with memories of  fun & pickle making.Playing cricket with cousins & watching the women in the house busy gearing up for the pickle making project.

So it all starts with obtaining the raw mango  in bulk from the market,cutting them into required dimensions.Then comes the time for spicies, oil & all.Not to forget arranging for big vessels while waiting for bright sunshine.

The pickle making is at par with a ritual or a religious ceremony where besides the do’s & dont’s there are ample superstitions to be strictly followed till the tasting of the final product & preserving it for a year or more.

Try these homemade ones & savour the taste for a lifelong.
