Mango Rice

Mangoes are the most prevalent fruits in summers.Mostly everyone love to have this thick fruit or use this tangy raw mango in curries .But,how about a tangy flavourful rice using mango.Its a very simple recipe and a nice twist to the usual plain rice.It can be served with a creamy side dish.I had prepared it for the first time and I should say it tasted almost like lemon rice and there were bits of the grated mango to munch in between.I also added grated coconut to make it more tasty ,you may omit that step to taste the simple flavourful mango rice.

Basmati 2 cups
raw mango 1 peeled n grated
asafoetida / hing / kayam podi1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
coconut grated 1/2 cup(optional)
urad dal 3 tsp
Chana dal 3 tsp
groundnuts 1/3 cup
Vattal mulakku / Red chilli 4
green chillies 4
Cilantro 1/2 bunch
cumin seeds 1tsp
mustard 1/2 tsp
oil 3tsp

  • Wash and rinse basmati and soak it in water for 20 minutes.
  • Cook the rice in an open vessel for 10 minutes or till 3/4 coooked.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and fry the red dried chillies.
  • Splutter mustard,cumin seeds.
  • Then,add the urad dal,chana dal ,groundnuts and fry for a minute.
  • Saute the green chillies.
  • Now add the grated mango ,cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the coconut and fry for 2 minutes.
