I had promised myself that I’ll blog more regularly, I mean 2-3 posts a week and I was working towards it until I picked a novel to read. Yes, a novel by Danielle Steel was the culprit behind me not posting or reading any other blogs. I’m addicted to reading and that’s the reason I avoid it many a times, as I can disappear into the book for hours without eating, sleeping or doing any other activity. Any free time available will go towards the book, till it gets over. I can miss out watching my favorite serials on the TV too when it comes to reading a good book!!!
Anyways, today I finished reading the book and I quickly cooked a Tofu pilaf and made some boondi raita for the dinner. While making the boondi raita I suddenly remembered that I did not post my favorite Cucumber and Tomato Raita till date. Now, one would ask me what’s the big deal in making this raita? My answer to that is, Wait till you try this one.. Believe me, it’s different!!!

Let me start by thanking all of you for appreciating my previous post, Braided Corn and Coriander Puff. I’m glad to tell you that this post got the highest number of hits till date, on the first day of posting, here on Foodelicious.
Everyone in India is thoroughly enjoying the mango season and I’m no exception. I have made use of mango in various ways like chutney, panha, milkshake and so on.. Recently I got hold of very good quality Alphonso mango and decided to make Ice Cream. I made a very basic Ice Cream using the condensed milk. The condensed milk provides good flavor, thickness, creaminess and volume to the Ice Cream.
To go along with the Ice cream, I made a Tucmaria and Menthol sauce. Tucmaria or Subja are seeds of holy basil. These seeds do not have a flavor of their own but are good digestive in this heat. I added menthol extract to add the cooling flavor to the sauce. The menthol itself is very good in this heat at the same time it reduces throat irritation.

Finally today, I decided to make it. After S and the younger kid left for office and school respectively, I let the elder one sleep longer and finished all the cleaning and other chores before he got up. I must confess, I can be a fanatic at times when it comes to cleanliness. Then I did all the chopping, grating and kneading required for the preparation. By that time the elder one was up, so gave him milk and breakfast and then headed towards finishing the product.
