The nice part of living in India, and I'm sure other countries in Asia, is the vegetables get delivered to your door. And fruits. And sometimes knife sharpeners come by to see if you can give them some work! Its pretty cool. I cave in occasionally and buy the products - seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables delivered to your day - nothing could be better!

This was the case with the Mausambi vendor - he showed up just as I was leaving for work, but I couldn't resist. Mausambi is of the lime family - its actually a large sweet lime. And the juice is amazing - sweet and slightly sour.

Just juice the mausambi, add sugar, a little bit of lemon juice and if you'd like, some salt. You could even add some powdered roasted cumin seeds. Its absolutely delicious especially for a summer day!

Check out the stuff my fellow marathoners have been cooking up:
DK, Siri, Srivalli, Ranji, PJ, Curry Leaf, Medha, Priya, Bhawna, Raaji, Ruchii, Kamala, Roopa, Divya Kudua, Rekha, Divya, Lakshmi, Raaga, Lakshmi, Sripriya, Viji, Kamalika and Pavani.
