Melting moments of May have turned up the heat a notch higher…..Weekend Breakfast Blogging, the event started by the lovely doctor at Saffron trail, stops by at Escapades this month. Yes!! WBB# 22 will spring to you from here…..

The brightest spot in the scorching summer is reserved for the king of fruits – the mango!! That’s what makes the summer all so worth it……summers become mango centric…..when life is all about harvesting, storing, buying, pickling, ripening and digging into this luscious fruit……

Weekend Breakfast Blogging #22 – May Mango Madness

Mangoes – the national fruit of India (and Pakistan, Bangladesh and Philippines – source Wikipedia), is said to have a mention in the Ramayana and Mahabharata…..the mango is believed to be a native of india though it is prolifically grown in most south Asian countries…..a tropical fruit with more than 30 species, the mango is a rich source of nutrients, particularly high vitamins A, C and E and is also a rich source of dietary fiber and carbohydrates. While pages and pages can be written about the taste and texture of the luscious ripe fruit, the raw form of the fruit is also put to use in pickles, chutneys , dried and used as a souring agent (aam chur) etc.

So put fish out your thinking caps then (I doubt it will be needed though)…..and join me in the may mango madness…..send in your recipes which have mangoes as the focal point in a breakfast preparation(vegetarian including eggs)….cooked, raw, sliced, grated, pulped, pureed, cut or squashed….Mangoes of any variety, used in any form…..cakes, muffins, breakfast breads, cookies, beverages, salads, chutneys, salsas…..and am sure much much more that can be done with this king of fruit….. Bring it on….the rules for WBB#22 – May Mango Madness are as below. There is no limit on the number of entries…so go ahead…flood my inbox!!

    oh, what lovely pics…though I dont have a food blog…I am not not going to give a miss to this Anu 🙂 yummy

  13. Hi there

    I have just stumbled upon your blog. I love the clean design and fantastic photos. I am a blogger myself and always thought that design was key and you have certainly captured that! There are so many food blogs out there these days and being different to all the others is key. I have just started http://www.ifoods.tv which is a website for chefs, foodies and food bloggers to hand out, share recipes, photos and videos. When i was blogging I always thought i should be getting more traffic as my blog was getting lost in the masses of stuff out there so my new site is aimed at giving food bloggers and chefs a bigger platform! Hope you enjoy it and keep up the good writing and design here! I have now bookmarked you so will be regular reader, Cheers!

  14. my favorite fruit but during childhood days I used to gulp 2-3 mangoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I don’t mind if I have to snack on them either! Boy! U can think how many I would have eaten in just a day and this would be my routine through out the season. Anyway need to think about the breakfasts usign them. sure will do 🙂
