Jihva For Mangoes

No other fruit is as delicious and magnificent as mango. Now is the mango season in India and I thought mango would be the right ingredient to start the JFI. I was little bit nervous and was not sure how the response is going to be, since this is the first time I am hosting an event in my blog. The responses I received showed how dear this fruit is to all of us. Mango is not just a delicious fruit; most of us also have very fond memories related with it. That might be the mango tree in the back yard, or might be one of those summer vacations at grand parents’ house where we enjoyed the fruits, or might be the avakaaya preparation that we did with mother – so many precious mango memories!

I would like to thank all the participants, fellow bloggers and readers for your exhilarating enthusiasm, participation and interest. I am humbled to receive such a vivid variety of recipes for this event. Each one of these entries is excellent and I enjoyed them all and am sure you would do too.

Following are the entries that I received for the JFI ~ Mango event.

Mango Memoirs – Short Essays

“Every summer in Madras was filled with the sumptuous, succulent, luscious king of fruits, the intricate and sweet mango,… Maitri remembers. “How I love thee… How many white T-shirts I have stained with your inimitable juice,” she asks in mock humour.”
Mango Fool by Tilotamma of “Apropos of Nothing“.

**** ****

“On the courtyard of my mother�s house in a quiet sunny seaside town of Cherthala (Kerala), stood a large, shady mango tree, on which, as kids, we used to have swings for Onam, and other celebrations. Come April- May, that blessed tree is all drooping down with a heavy load of mangoes, with the finest form and color.”
In a Mango Mood by Archana of Spicyana

**** ****

“When I was a kid, we had 4 different kinds of mango trees in our compound. We never had to buy a mango. Baby mangoes, sour mangoes, unripe, ripe, sweet mangoes were all lavishly available during the season. We, the kids, loved to eat baby mangoes with salt. I remember taking baby mangoes in my schoolbag to distribute among my friends.”
Mango Adventures by RP of My Workshop

**** ****

“The story goes like this – Sage Naradha once brought a Mango fruit as an offering to Lord Shiva and there was a fight between Lord Ganesha and Lord Muruga as to who would get the fruit. Lord Shiva told them they have to go around the world thrice and whoever comes first would get the mango . Lord Muruga at one flew in his peacock around the world. Lord Ganesha cleverly went around his parents thrice indicating that they were his universe. So he won the Mango Fruit.”
Food of Gods by Priya of Sugar and Spice

**** ****

“We will replace our full-fat buffalo milk, that we grew up on, with 2%. We will melt unsalted butter and pretend that it is asli desi ghee. Heck, we will even pretend that tofu is a vegetable. Eventually, we will get used to all of that and stop craving for the original. One thing we will never be able to replace or stop missing is the indian mango.”
For Jihva by Vee of Past, Present and Me

**** ****

“I remember how those mangoes tasted: rich and ripe, filled with honied juice and a heady flavor that was unlike any other fruit in the world. Grandpa would liken them to bananas mixed with peaches and cantelope melons, but I never thought he was right. There was nothing that tasted like them, nothing. They were sweet, like the scent of honeysuckle in high summer, and they were smoother and butterier than a peach. They were so good, I always thought that people who said that the fruit Eve tempted Adam with was an apple were dead wrong. “
It Had to Have Been a Mango – By Barbara of Tigers and Strawberries.

  4. […] Like a little kid, I am very excited! The first blog event I ever took part in was Indira’s original Jihva For Mangoes, and oh, how hesitant and unsure I was! New to blogging, new to Indian cooking, new to the whole *community*. […]

  5. Indira, you are an inspiration to this single mature American of non-Indian descent. I purchased one green mango and greedily attempted to split it between two pickle recipes: Mango Thokku and Maamidi Thurumu Pacchadi. I was nervous about the sourness of the green mango but it is wonderful! It isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. What a wonderful thing to do early in spring! Thank you for your wonderful resource guide.

  6. Hear I sit in my backyard this sunny day in Florida looking at the Mango trees with mouthwatering Mangoes that we cherish and love .They are part of my Family as I was holding on to them when the hurricane broke a few branches I cried . All my neighbours and frieds wait for the season as we wait for the new arrival . I do enjoy the wonderful recipes and hoping to try them out. Thanks
