kairee panhe!! ..

Kairee Panhe as it is popularly known is a summer drink made from the raw mangoes. Its sweet and refreshing and helps cool down during hot summers.

To actually make the drink, we only need to add water and sugar/salt as per taste to this kairee crush. Summers cant be complete without this kairee panhe ... :)

Summery Sweetness ...

Although i hate this weather ... i am very fond of the fruits we get in this season .. the bright yellow Alphonso mangoes and the cool refreshing watermelons ... :)
Had a 'shahi' mango milkshake for dessert this weekend. The recipe in short ..
Mango pieces + milk + sugar. Blend it in a blender
Pour it in glass and add some vanilla ice cream

Watermelon is an amazing fruit and so well designed for summers. It consists of almost 95% water. Me and Hubz finished one 2kg biggie in single sitting ... :)
Simple to server and eat. Just cut manageable slices and top it with some chat masala ... :)


Its that time of the year when the king of fruits is visiting us ... :)
Was lucky to catch hold of some amazing Ratnagiri Hapus Aambe... and man .. can't get enough of them. The fresh, sweet, sunny yellow colored fruit is too awesome to miss.

Looking forward to lots of more mangoes this summer .. :)
