There are 2-3 Mango trees back home but a particular tree yields a lot of Mangoes.Umma says it has given a lot of raw mangoes for curries and pickles and also delicious ripe mangoes.Whenever there is plenty she gives it to our neighbours and relatives,that is every one gets these mangoes to taste every year but hardly I get to taste them.It is really hard to send it through someone because of the weight problems,and only very close relatives might take the trouble,also my Dad doesn't like troubling others with such loads.But as he comes during those six months gap (which now has turned to one year) Ummi sends whatever she could get which would be mostly raw.It's not that we don't get Mangoes here,actually we get a lot of varieties from different countries along with Indian Mangoes but something from our own garden means it elevates the love and taste somehow :)

How fast the time flies,from one challenge we have reached to the next 10th of the month's challenge.That reminds me just after two months its Ramadan Alhamdulillah..This time the theme was to prepare any breakfast.Though we all know how important it is to have breakfast but its the one meal mostly skipped.I always feel there is enough time to have breakfast in India rather than compared to Doha.Specially for the school going children and working people,who have to go very early in the morning here.If children find eating things difficult early in the morning then the best part is to give them something healthy in their tiffin.

Have you tried making Milkshakes or smoothies with Custard Apple.If it's a 'no' just because of the task of separating the seeds from this delicious fruit then no more worries now because the process is so simple which can be done in a jiffy,and you have your other ingredients then bliss...

I have already posted a Paneer recipe earlier and I have mentioned there how my children love eating paneer dishes.Now a days very week once or twice there will be a paneer dish at home.When my parents were here I prepared this chilly paneer and everyone liked it so much,that every thing was mopped up nothing left for packing for the kids tiffin.So this week when I started preparing my little one told me he needed the same for his school too,so I reserved some for the next day.I made chapatis,then I put this Chilly paneer inside and rolled it,that is how my younger one told me to do for his tiffin.
