While in India , we bought these tender mangoes  for making pickles. Maavadu pickle is a great combo for thayir saatham / curd rice. The recipe was  in hand, but alas, there were  no vadumanga remaining  after they were soaked in salt, for the next step.  All got ate up!  Anyway, I just have the photo atleast to share with you!

    Hi Ashaji,
    Thank you, I am thankful to Lord for such a pleasant trip and evergreen memories it has made.

    I did enjoy the trip, Thank u Viji!

    I know Salem is famous for the mangoes, I even remember the nursery tamil rhyme mentioning ‘selathu mampazham’. Do you, Mythreyee?

    Dear Lakshmiammal,
    I can’t blame them for be gobbled up prematurely! I hope you do not mind my using the picture of the mangoes for an article on my blog. In case you do not entertain it, do let me know.
