Summer reminds me of mangoes in all forms. Especially, the start of summer brings memories of childhood days where we used to have curd rice and vadu mangai or maavadu(baby mangoes) for lunch everyday. Though I was brought up in Mumbai, we always had the tradition of preparing pickles and storing it for the whole year. Be it maavadu or narthangai or avakai, pickles are a specialty. Nowadays we get all types of pickles in the market, but homemade pickles are always the best!
