Oh the mango. The queen of fruit! Wouldn't you agree?
There are so many wonderful varieties of this sensational fruit. Pick up a fresh, ripe mango and breath in its sweet aroma. There is nothing quite like it. If you are like me you can hardly wait to cut open the ripe fruit. Behold the vivid yellow/orange color, spoon out the juicy flesh and sit back and experience the aromatic flavors.
This month I am dedicating a whole mingle in the honor of this delicious fruit. Fill your shopping bags with juicy mangoes and create extravagant dishes with the fruit. The selection is huge as mangoes are so versatile. They can be used in savory and sweet dishes. My only request is to use fresh fruit, because only then will you enjoy the full aroma and exceptional tastes of this wonderful fruit.

Now I come to the fantastic part of announcing the lucky winner of the Monthly Mingle Bollywood Cooking. The spectacular roundup was stunning with 37 entries who were competing for the star studded The Bollywood Cookbook by the lovely Bulbul Mankani. But it was not just the book - it was a personalized autographed book by Bulbul herself! After a few hurdles we finally managed to pick out the lovely winner.
I am so glad to announce that the gorgeous Arfi of HomeMades is the one to walk away with the prize. Arfi created a splendor of a feast with a spicy Bombay Lamb Curry and a Pistachio Saffron Almond Kheer. Both Bulbul and I agreed that it was a feast that was fit for a Bollywood Superstar. Arfi the book will be on its way to New Zealand from India. Congratulations!
