Mango Lassi Recipe | How to make Mango Lassi | Mango Recipes

I am back to the blog after a long time and the break was not intentional. I was a bit occupied with my personal things and I was really lazy to post something here. When people started to ask about my absence from the blog, I realised the long break. I sincerely thank each one of you who personally messaged, emailed and rang me to ask about the break. Hope everyone in India is relishing the delicious and juicy mangoes. In my part of the world (Sydney), we are entering the winter season and mangoes are not in season. In Australia, we get mangoes in December.  However, I have few mango recipes in drafts from the last season and I thought of posting it now. Let us move on to the recipe. Do check out my other Mango recipes from the blog:

Radish Sambhar Recipe | Mullangi Sambhar | Sambhar Recipe for Rice

Jany loves Sambhar very much and especially he likes the Capsicum Sambhar. I always try to explore different sambhar recipes. Once my friend, Florence was sharing her lunch scene with radish sambhar. It reminded my hostel days and I almost forgot this sambhar until I saw her photo. I was very much tempted to try it and I was waiting for the availability of white radish in the market. However, I was able to find only the pink radish and I end up making with it. There is no compromise in the taste and it turned out super yummy. Check out my other sambhar varieties like Mixed vegetable sambhar, tiffin sambhar and varutharacha sambhar too. Let us move on to the recipe:

Pineapple Kesari Recipe | Pineapple Rava Kesari | Pineapple Sheera | Pineapple Kesari Bath

Happy Vishu and Happy Tamil New Year to everyone out there. Hope you all are enjoying the long weekend. I have not prepared any special items to celebrate this occasion since it is Good Friday. We were busy with the Good Friday rituals in the church and the day went peacefully. Before winding up the day, I thought to share a special recipe of Pineapple Kesari from my drafts. 
During my recent India trip, dad got us few fresh pineapples and it was very tasty. After having few slices of pineapple, I thought of making few dishes using it. I made this pineapple kesari for our special lunch during the church thiruvizha in my native. It came out very well and everyone liked it very much. My uncle (Jany's dad) was asking for a second serving of the kesari since he liked it. Check out my other Kesaris like Milk Kesari, Rava Kesari, Aval Kesari, Semiya Kesari and Wheat Flour Kesari as well. Also, check out the other pineapple recipes from the blog: Pineapple pachadi and Pineapple upside down cake.

Payaru Kanji Recipe | Green Gram Rice Porridge | Cheru Payar Kanji | Pachai Payaru Kanji | Payaru Kanji with Thengai Chammanthi | Good Friday Special

Payar Kanji is a comforting and traditional food for many Keralites and for people from Kanyakumari District. It is very nutritious, filling and easily digestible.  My mum and grandma make this payar kanji at least once in a week and it is very close to my heart. Still, I follow the tradition and make it once in a week for dinner. It is very easy to make and it goes very well with coconut chammanthi or pickle. Whenever I feel bored to cook or I am sick, we end up making this since it is nutritious than buying from hotels. Since Good Friday is nearing, I thought of sharing this recipe on the blog. We make Payaru Kanji for lunch on Good Friday and even in Churches, it is served. Check out my Cheru payar Thoran which goes well with Plain rice Kanji. Traditionally, they make it in a big pot. However, you can make it in a pressure cooker too. (check notes)Let us move on to the preparation of kanji:
