MaambazhamAAM MaambazhamAAM

The weekend was filled with Mambazhams - It started with vanilla icecream topped with Haaphus pieces. Monday was the mega mambazham day with a mango milkshake and mango kulfi at Elco's. A, the rockstar at office decided to treat S and I and so we travelled all the way to Elco's for some pav bhaji, bhelpuri, parathas and an overdose of mambazhams... Yummmmmy!

Thank you A! You are the next super star, I say!Haapus a.ka Alphonse is priced at approx. Rs.42 per piece - yes per piece! This year's mambazha output is 5% less than the usual. Even otherwise, the average price is somewhere close to Rs.24-25/- which is etta-k-kani for AAM junta like me.

Kanigalilee aval Maangani...Kannadasan's ; Mambazhamaam mambazham, malgova mambazham - remember the school poem? and ofcourse the latesht Maambazhamam Mambazham *Ouuuuvvv* from Pokkiri. Can you think of more mambazha songs ?

PS: Somehow the engleees word mango does not do justice to the juicy 'Maambazham', right?

WOW !!! the mango shake looks nice. It's been 2 years since I had a mango :(

Reading this makes me crave for the fruit.

True. Maambazham gives that succulent twist to the fruit rather than the plain Mango!
