Journey of making a magical snack

If you are a fan of mangoes as well as ezhanda vada(i), you will instantly fall in love with this one.

Invention of a devine-yummy sweet, tangy & spicy snack - Mango Zing
As the proverb goes, “Necessity is the mother of all inventions” there is an interesting story behind the invention of Smartika’s Mango-Zing. Like many of the folks in my village Elampillai, near Salem district, my grandmother too was a die-hard fan of ezhanda vada(i). She used to prepare these lip-smacking delicacy by herself, at home for decades, purchasing jujube fruits from the local market.
Two years ago, post return from her pilgrimage to Kasi, in line with the Hindu belief that one should give up on something that is close to one’s heart after Kasi yathra, my grandmother chose to give up on ezhanda vada(i). A seemingly easy task, initially. As an unfortunate twist of fate, the “tangy snack” did not give up on her and soon started haunting her in her dreams, during her visit to the markets, people by her side savoring ezhanda vada(i), etc. But there was no going back on her “sacred vow”. She had to find something that will re-instate her inner calm and restore peace.
As it is the case for all mortals, the insatiable desire for this tangy-snack ezhanda vada(i), set her on the search for a killer-recipe, that would shadow her craving for ezhanda vada(i). Over many months she kept herself busy, trying out several recipes with various fruits, vegetables, spices that were within her reach.
Last summer, as she was rejoicing fresh cut tangy mangoes at her home, the strong tangy mango flavors were shuttling as signals between her nerve buds in the tongue to her brain and suddenly a flash of light illuminated her mind. She instantly knew what would make ‘that’ killer recipe.
In a matter of weeks, my grandmother had perfected the recipe with the right ingredients to ensure a love-at-first-bite taste with loads of natural nutrients and a dash of love.
...... and the divine-yummy, Smartika’s Mango Zing was born!
