I got the inspiration for this recipe from a South Indian Cookery class I recently visited at Food at 52.

I made my recipe in the The Optimum 9400 blender which was sent to me by Froothie to try out, you can see the original review here.

It crushes ice in seconds and you can create the most amazing icecreams in minutes. But that is not all, you can also create hot soups and sauces in the same blender too.I love using the blender for creating smoothies, soups, icecreams and nut butters too. It can even make scrambled eggs!!!

  9. I thought I had eaten every type of mango dish there was to eat in South India. I certainly put on the weight to show it! But i never came across this dish before and it looks so intriguing. It reminds me a little of khadee which I make with yoghurt but that's a savoury dish. I'm going to have to search out some mangoes to make this Nanya because I am so intrigued about what it will taste like. Thank you for sharing

  13. This is a new type of curry to me. Hardly any cooking either! I like the idea of the cooling contrast of the buttermilk with the spices and sweet fruit. Very balanced and interesting, Nayna. :-)
