This is a recipe known only to people from my small community in the state of Maharashtra in India. Such recipes, using coconut and mangoes are specific to the western coastal belt of India, especially Maharashtra because of the abundance of these fruits. During Spring, raw mangoes start appearing in the markets and a countless dishes are made from these tangy treats. One of these is a salad prepared using fresh coconut, raw mango and raw chickpeas soaked in water to soften them. All of this is ground together with chillies and tempered with spices. Garnished with salt, sugar and fresh coriander, this is a unique and unknown savoury salad which I can eat in bucketfuls!
Refreshing and pretty, these summertime treats use the sweeter varieties of edible flowers, including perfumed violets, fresh chamomile reminiscent of apples, young dandelion flowers with honey flavours, cucumbery borage, fragrant and lemony lilac, citrusy marigold, floral and fruity rose, and cranberry-like hibiscus. For the EDIBLE FLOWERS CHALLENGE.
Many people find these ice-cream flavours strange. But in the Philippines, the Ube (purple yam) and Macapuno (mutant coconut) ice-cream are the most common ice-cream. Serving ice-cream inside a young coconut is a great way to enjoy it. The soft, jelly like meat of the young coconut is a refreshing addition to the taste.

On a recent sugar-craving marathon, I recalled my breakfast and holiday memories in Vietnam of this fellow heart-warming dish - sweet sticky rice assorted in the vivid red of gac fruit, bathed in the tang of full-cream coconut milk, and marinated in granulated white sugar. Eat this alone, or as a combo with some pork cake, mung bean paste, or coconut shreds, all work!
I am very fond of South Indian cooking! It has such a great variety, many different vegetables are used, as well as many spices – and most of all because it is cooked with coconut oil and freshly grated coconut. So here is one of my favorite curries, acutally very simple to make and sooo tasty.
