Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. Last year - 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Mango Curd Salad

Saturday (4/2) was Telugu New Year also known as Ugadi. It is usually celebrated with the reading of the New Years' almanac and traditional foods. You can read more about our previous years celebrations here: 201420152016201820192020, 2021.

This year, we celebrated another Covid-19 style Ugadi. We had Lime Rice, Mango Curd Salad, Spinach Coconut Dal, Potato Fry, Papadums, Tamarind Chutney, Onion Pakora, Paneer Vada, and of course a little Ugadi Pachadi.

This year was dominated by complementary fruit dishes of Lime Rice and Mango Curd Salad. This delicious tropical side dish has just the right amount of warm savory, spiced coconut mixed with pert, slightly sweet tart green mango, evoking thoughts of warmer, happier days to come.


Here's my recipe for Mango Curd Salad:
