Q- How do you know the mango season has arrived?


A- When you are on your way home and cross a shop whose board proclaims this:



Sandwich Centre


And the shop contains this:






I kid you not. I saw this shop only yesterday evening.  A sandwich shop that had been converted into a full time alphonso selling centre! Not a sandwich in sight. Not a table or chair. Not even the stray tomato. Just stacks and stacks of mango crates.



Apparently selling mangoes is more profitable that selling sandwiches! But I am not complaining- I am partial to the fruit myself! 🙂 Nothing beats a sweet, juicy mango on a hot sumer day.


PS: I am hoping the foodie bloggers post some exciting recipies on mangoeeesss..Homecooked? Laxmi? Shyam?Any ideas?

    I remember having devoured 3 full mangoes at once as a kid. We never ate mangoes that were cut into slices or cubes. We preyed on it like vamps 😀
