    Chocolates and Pickles

    You all must be thinking what Tittle is this Chocolates and Pickles, will it go together. For me Chocolates and Pickles are my favourite. Everyone serves vegetables first , for me with Pickle is a must. Some have pickles with dahi rice, but I start having it with Sambar rice itself, with Rasam pickle is very tasty and with dahi everyone loves it.Now a days you get pickle masala , soyou have just to cut the mangoes or Nimbu , add salt, add the pickle masala and then put oil in it. I like Mango pickle more . In January my husband had brought lot of Nimbus and we made pickle, after giving to my son and daughter the pickle was there till 17th June as here because only we both are there and my husband does not have much and only I have. For him if pickle is not there he doe snot mind but for me pickle is a must. Also like the Mango pickle cut into tiny bits

    I love Chocolates too very much. What a surprise that my gran ddaughter is not fond of chocolates for that matter she isnot a foodie like me.. Once she was telling my husband while talking my mouth does not pain but when I eat my mouth pains when he asked why you are not eating . All children will be very fond of Chocolates and Ice cream but sh eis not. Whenever I go to Dubai or my daughteror son comes here they will buy fo mer lot of Chocolates especially the ones with something inside, other chocolates I dont like that much. After lunch or dinner I like to have Chocolates, now Chocolates are over so have bought a sweet to have.
    I have grown up by age but still young at heart , thats why I act like a kid sometimes. Senior Citizen control themselves about eating Chocolates but I like them very much

    Viji ji, The title of your post caught my attention right away. The write up was very sweet like the chocolates you love !
    It is good to be young at heart.
    Can you please share your pickle recipe ? I hope I can make pickles for my sons and their families when they are older.

    Lovely title I I too start read immediately. Thanks for several helpings of choco-pickle. Lemon pickle with curd bath & mango pulp together in my favourite.
    A lovely picking. Thanks for your vigour and vitality. You never age.
    Regards.

    I wonder why men don't enjoy pickles as much as we women do. I love pickles. But my husband hardly eats.
    My sister, mother and sister in law are pickle experts. So they give me.. Me and mother in law will enjoy pickle very much. Both hubby and FIL will be telling both of you don't eat pickle daily..

    Your snippet is as sweet as the chocolate you have mentioned.. :)

    Vijima, I have always loved pickles. Whenever I sat for food, mom, dad and my sister would start shouting saying are you eating pickle with rice or rice with pickle. i used to tell them look at your plates and eat, why are you all looking at mine. Then due to various issues, I stopped eating for a long time. Recently I thought what sin have I done to avoid all this. Now am facing the consequences. Sigh. It is all so unfair!

    Dear Viji Madam,
    I love both chocolates and pickles. Chocolates I do not eat much....because I tell children not to eat and so I also do not eat....occasionally.
    Pickles.....Andhras make and eat a lot of pickles. With mango we make half a dozen varieties.Gongura (I do not know the equivalent English name), raw tamarind, red chillies and on and on. Hot rice with pickle and ghee....nothing can equal to the taste.
    Syamala

    Glad to know you liked the post. For pickles we use the ready made pickle masala in which everything is there. You just have to add that according to your taste
