How can a “Pregnancy Recipes Collection” be devoid of Raw Mango Recipe ?! No pregnant woman would say “No” to this tangy treat! Pregnancy and Raw Mangoes share a wonderful bond..
We have a 20-year old giant Mango Tree at our backyard in Coimbatore. To capture the top view of our tree, I climbed my neighbor’s terrace on one summer morning and have saved the click in my Pregnancy diet Menu page(Click here). Good memories to reminisce…
We readily enjoy summer mangoes cooked in different varieties from pickles to pachadis! This nutty raw mango rice is a quick meal loved by all ages. I have used this in my varagu vadagam pic clicked on the same day 😉
