Geeta Subramanium is a Vastu Consultant based in New Delhi. She is an avid observer of human interactions and the results of both good and bad Vastu on the lives of people. It’s a subject that fascinates her.
The other paramount passion in her life is food. She adores cooking and feeding people and feels it is a very important form of creative activity.
She also feels that a unique synergy is created among a group of people who sit and enjoy a meal together. Food is a profound means of communication and the cord that ties friends and families together.
She is currently engaged in a project to collect and document traditional vegetarian family recipes from all parts of India which are in imminent danger of being forgotten and lost forever.
Mangoes have been almost universally accepted as the most delectable and gratifying of all fruits. They are also unique, because they are among just a handful of fruits that are consumed both raw and ripe, like banana, jackfruit, papaya, etc.
I have presented some venerated, traditional Indian recipes for both raw and ripe mangoes. The recipes are pan Indian and do not belong to any one state. They are all easy to prepare, and with the exception of a couple of recipes, are not time - consuming. Do use good quality mangoes to get the best results.
