Mango Rice

This is another recipe which I like a lot. This rice is made out of raw mango. Here is the recipe.

  1. Raw Mango - 1 cup (shredded)
  2. Basmati Rice or Regular rice - 1 cup (measuring cup)
  3. Sesame Oil - 2 tbsp
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  7. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  8. Channa dhall - 1/2 tsp
  9. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  10. ginger - a small piece
  11. Ground nuts or Peanuts - 2 tbsp
  12. Cashew nuts - 1 tbsp
  13. Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
  14. Curry leaves - few
If you are using basmati rice, then soak the rice in water for 20 mts and pressure cook it upto 2 whistles and let it cool. If its a regular rice, then wash it and pressure cook it upto 2 whistles and let it cool. Now take a pan, pre heat the oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dhall, channa dhall, green chillies, ginger, curry leaves, cashews and groundnuts and fry it till golden brown. Now add the shredded mango to it. Add turmeric powder and salt(required for mango and rice) and sprinkle 1/4 cup of water to it and let it cook for 10 mts. Since the mango is already shredded it will take less time to cook. When it is fully cooked, put it on top of the rice and mix everything thoroughly. Garnish it with coriander leaves.
