What are the best summer dishes?

Summer is a season when the sights, sounds, and refreshing aromas come together to create a symphony of all things beautiful and bright! It is when you start taking much anticipated halts amidst the busy streets just to enjoy some masala chaas or a tall glass of lassi on a sunny day. Be it planning a tropical summer vacation on the beaches under the shade of the palm trees or just staying back at home to enjoy mom's handmade Aam Panna, this is the season where the beauty of nature and the joy of life are in full bloom. As the temperature rises, so does our desire for refreshing meals and beverages that can quench our thirst and satisfy our hunger pangs! From the crispy and spicy Bhel, to the sweet and tangy Mango Lassi these summer picks are truly delicious.

Mango Lassi
Remember the good old childhood days when grandmother would make us delightful mango lassi during lazy summer afternoons? We would all gather around in the kitchen, eagerly waiting for her to pour us a glass of the delicious drink. The aroma of freshly blended mangoes and cardamom filled the room, and our taste buds were already anticipating the thought of taking the first sip. If you’re looking for one beverage that will feel like a calm shade on a scorching hot day, it's Mango Lassi!

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy refreshing and colourful dishes and serve them to your loved ones. One such dish is chaat, a popular street food that is loved by many. Serve it in a colourful serving bowl, with a spoon to scoop up the crispy potato patty, garnished with onions, freshly cut tomatoes and chickpeas.
As kids, we all have memories of enjoying chaat with our friends on the bustling streets of the city, right? Indulge in these sweet, spicy, and tangy flavours by recreating these mouthwatering snacks at home this season!
