Getting married has been quite a fun filled ride ,

Everyday I would try new recipes as a new bride !

No, It wasn’t to prove myself or win over ;

It was simply to celebrate each new day together !

Since then I have made quite a few discoveries,

There was pasta, pizza and a lot of curries !

But the love of mango left them all behind,

When I put mint, mango and curd to grind ;

What I got was this delicious dish ;

Mango was available all year round I wish !
