Memories and office potluck
I remember eating it for the first time when one of my office colleagues made it for potluck.My friend Saranya belonged to Tamil Nadu.She was new to Mumbai and decided to use this opportunity to showcase her cooking skills.She asked us if we would like to taste a rice recipe with mangoes.We agreed enthusiastically.After all,food binds you together as a team.
Initially thought it will be sweet considering it is a mango based recipe.
However,it was all tangy and delicious to our surprise.Life does surprise you isn't it?
