Mango Ice Cream

Whatever the season is, love for ice cream is something which never dies. Spring has shown its colors in our city and the onset of spring means, here there would be days which are really warm like summer alternating between some moderate temperature days and some cold days. But 2-3 weeks back we had such an awesome temperature. After season of chilling cold winters, it was a pleasure to luxuriate in the warm Sun outside and bask in a cone of one's favorite flavored ice cream.
I was like they definitely have good amount of loaded sugars and artificial colors or flavors in them, why not try one of our favorite flavors at home and guess what, it is mango ice cream. Yes, you read it right, I added no sugar, no colors! Bingo yet it turned out yum.

Holige/ Havyaka style sakkare holige/Kadalebele holige

Any big function at native (ooru) is not without this holige complete. My kiddo calls it sweet chapathi, though now she knows the name 'holige'. It is famous throughout India. In different states it is made in their authentic way, named puranpoli in the north, obbattu or holige in Karnataka. I love this Dakshinakannada way of sakkarekadalebeleholige. I could just make 8. In native they get prepared in '3 digit number' say 200 or 300 for moderate functions. Today my husband ate them and told well from next time we can skip calling our adigebhatru(cook)😉 for functions, as this has turned out to be very close to what they prepare a day ahead of function at native.
