Some things only thrive in full sun. They are happiest in high temperatures and humidity! I am one such creature! Summer is my season of choice. I love everything that comes with it, including all the gorgeous, seasonal fruits and vegetables.
When I was growing up, my Grandmother always said it was good to eat seasonal and that certain foods flourished in certain seasons, because they were what our bodies required in that season. I don't know how scientific this is but definitely believe that Granny knows best and have always followed her advice and never regretted it. Not only are seasonal foods probably good for you, they are also cheaper in their season.
So, stock up on beautiful, fresh Summer veggies and fruits and enjoy them to your heart's content. Here are some Indian recipes for you to try...
