Eat to live or Live to Eat!! Fruit salad with a Mango base.


I had no clue my kids thought so much about my eating craze. Here i was in a " I can't take it anymore " kind of mood the other day. Hubby and kiddos had tried some tricks to cheer me up, but not to much success . So my almost 7 yr old Dev gets busy thinking and writing, giving the impression of someone doing a thesis on the creation of the Universe. Within minutes, he hands a five point plan to his dad on "How to cheer Mamma". Given below is what he had written down:
1. Whenever she wants to eat something, we give it to her.
2. We keep her enganged. ("engaged" in proper English)
3. Make her laugh and laugh.
4. We take her to a Restaurant.
5. Treat her like a Qeen !!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( "Queen" in proper English)
Just a peek at the note was enough to cheer me up until i noticed that 2 of those points was about eating. When i questioned him, his earnest reply is "Well ! thats what you do most of the time!" Seeeeee....
Anyways, here is the recipe for another favorite desert of mine . Everyone who has tasted this until now has fallen in love with it. You will too and so does Dev! Its a fruit salad with a Mango base with all the stuff which adds to the yumminess of the taste of Mango!
The picture was sent by my dear friend Pratima who like others loved it.

This looks so yummy and so simple to make. Thanks for posting. On my to do list in India. With Indian mangoes, this might be even better.

Keep revealing your secrets here :)

Hi Divya, I am so glad you visited this little space of mine. I am sure you will get heavy cream in the Nilgiris located on Brigade road.I also spotted it in Reliance fresh once. Have you tried Spencers and Food world? Good luck with your search :). nice to bump into anyone from my hometown.
