Summer is so so amazing back in Kerala. I guess its just the same everywhere , people have great times in parks, doing different activities which they enjoy. The most amazing part is that you get to have so much varieties of fruits. Back at home we just enjoy summer with lots and lots of raw as well as fruit mangoes. When mangoes get filled in our kitchen we used to have a special treat with a bowl of spiced green mangoes. This is not much recipe oriented post, but im much sure that anyone who tastes is going to go crazy over this.
Summer also indicates that we need to take in lots of liquid be that in any form. Spiced butter milk is one drink that is made most of the times during summer season, to fight with the hot weather a glass of buttermilk would be just perfect. A bowl full of Spiced Mango is well accompanied with a glass full of Spiced Buttermilk. Im sure you will try this out and surely would fall in love with this combo.
