Green Mango Pickles are very typical along an Indian vegetarian meal.

I’m eating mangoes by the case these days. The soft and sweet texture makes it a great breakfast food as it’s filling, nourishing and nutritionally rich with vitamins A and C, beta carotene and a good source of fibre. They make a great snack too.

The last case I bought, the mangoes were completely unripe. Watching and waiting for my mangoes to ripen was frustrating since I’m in the routine of having mangoes almost daily. So I turned these green mangoes into a pickle, perfect as a side to an Indian vegetarian meal.

For this recipe, choose green unripe mangoes.

Toronto’s historic Evergreen Brickworks is a community environmental centre, a hub of social innovation and green design, promoting a sustainable lifestyle.

Tourists visiting Toronto during the summer months have to make a pit stop at the Evergreen Brickworks Farmers’ Market on a Saturday. In 2010, Evergreen Brickworks was named one of the top 10 geotourism destinations in the world by National Geographic.

Arvinda’s will be featuring some Indian inspired recipes perfect for a Father’s Day brunch at the Evergreen Brickworks on June 16th.

The atmosphere and plethora of amazing fresh, local and organic produce and artisan products inspires us to cook and create, engage and learn, and leave with a feel-good, fuzzy feeling about the great things happening in this city.

This is a ‘must-do’ on any foodie’s list, especially if visiting Toronto for the first time!

Variety is definitely the spice of life! You can have a different dal cooked in its own unique way and never feel bored with this amazing protein source.

Mom usually cooks with Indian spices on most days. So this past weekend’s Mother’s Day Brunch, I treated Mom with some savoury treats only mildly spiced with Arvinda’s Curry Masala to give her a change from the everyday bold curry flavours she’s used to.

Saag Panner ~ Indian cheese with spinach also known as Palak Paneer.

So they say it takes 21 days to make a new habit (or break an old one!). With the arrival of spring comes a time of renewal, rejuvenation and restoration after the winter months of hibernation–and a perfect time to wake up and wash away some old habits that could be dragging us down!

As we’re into the month of April, this is also a time we can take positive actions to make our ‘environmental footprints’ smaller as Earth Day approaches. This year, Earth Day Canada is challenging Canadians to Take It Up. Just say yes to taking up a new challenge and do your part. It’s the challenges that are our greatest motivators for change and for pushing our boundaries further! They also keep life fun! 🙂
