Mango Breakfast

Puttu with Payar ( Green Gram) and Mango (Kerala Breakfast)
Today there was twist to the usual Puttu with Payar breakfast. For a change I sliced couple of mango pieces to the usual breakfast platter to make it tangy and tasty. Lucky for me, this year too, I got homegrown mango to share and cherish.

You too can try this out at home and tell me how you liked having this awesome combo for breakfast.
