Fruits & Nuts Mango Cake with Homemade Yellow Cake mix

Its been a while i posted fruits loaded cake, especially with mango. Since i want to finish some leftover mango pulp, i baked this beautiful cake with loads of fruits and nuts. Actually am running this week's blogging marathon with an interesting theme 'Readymade Produce - make at home'. Earlier, actually before blogging, i will always go for store bought cake mix, as they were quite easy to whisk and bake the cake.Then later, once i came to know more about baking cakes at home, i have completely dropped buying those ready-made products even though they are easily available.. Its always good to make cake mix at home by ourselves rite, we know what we have put in our cake batter, hence we can feed our family easily with our own bakes.

Parsi Style Brown rice is one among the traditional rice dish served along with their famous Dhansak,a Parsi gravy. Most of the Parsi's sunday's favourite is this Brown rice and Dhansak and even for few this Brown rice means Special occasions. I crossed many delicious Parsi style brown rice, but however i want to stick with the traditional one, obviously i picked this brown rice from here. I just loved the spice mixture used in this dish and this brown rice is quite easy to make. Obviously i grinded up the spice mixture before starting the cooking process and the spice mixture gives an excellent flavour to this beautiful mildy sweet brown rice.
