No Bake Mango Cheese Cake...Eggless too


Mango Cheesecake
After much of waiting, Summer has finally arrived bringing longer days to enjoy outdoors...And along with it, the seasonal fruit, mangoes have also arrived to the markets...While enjoying mangoes the only fact that makes me a bit sad when I compare the summer vacations in India is about the quantity of mangoes which we used to enjoy...We used to get them in heaps whereas I need to buy them in numbers here.....Anyways as I always  keep in mind, Something is better than Nothing......And every time I go to the markets , there will be a few mangoes in my shopping bag...

Now that hardly a week left for my Kerala trip ,  pantry cleaning is on the go at home.....I had to finish up my cream cheese which was not a hit at home otherwise...So thought of trying out  some cake with it and this yummy mango cheesecake was the result........

Kerala Fish Curry........Version 2


Kerala Fish Curry

Last day I was putting together all my recipes to make a Recipe Index...And then  I noticed the fact that being a Blog which is supposed to have more recipes from Kerala and being a hardcore fish lover myself, there aren't enough fish recipes here.. That made me think about the problem..

Mostly I prepare fish curries in the evening for dinner ...And then the lighting will be poor to get a good snap...So I will postpone, thinking to take a click in the morning, which never used to happen...

The mulberry bush near by house makes me nostalgic at times.....

As a kid I used to wander about along with my mom in our garden back home, where there was a mulberry bush and it fun waiting for them to ripen.....I get to do the same with my son, as he seems interested in plucking them too...So got a handful of them last day and here is the recipe that I tried..
