Mango rice

Mango is rich in nutrients. It has vitamins A,C,E ,K and B6 and also has, potassium,copper and amino acids.Its very healthy to eat mangoes either raw or cooked. India is the "number 1" producer of mangoes with 13,501,000 tonnes, produced every year.

Besides its nutritional values, it has a bond on everyones life. U can never forget the days when we used to buy mango pieces in front of our schools , with our little pocket money.The mangoes which are a like semi circles, with slighlty sprinkled salt and chilli pwdr........hmmmm i am just going back to St'Marys school - Chengalpet. "Memories"- the only vitamin ,which keeps man to move on. And i still remember my days with my twin sister in Tamilnadu ,where we used to eat mangoes from a big basket- both hiding at each door.........

wow..thank u mango for making me so happy..

Sorry , iam bit carried away.....Lets get into the dish.When we think of variety rice, we think of festivals.Bcoz variety rice are cooked during pregnancy for poo mudi,baby shower etc......
I have taken a medium sized green mango as in pic.Wash and peel the mango. I hav grated the mango in the larger holes of the grater as it shud be seen in the rice.

These are the ingredients for tampering. Six to seven red chillies, 4 green chillies, 1 tbsp of chana dal,1 tbsp of urad dal, a pinch of asafoetida,curry leaves cilantro and salt to taste.

Take 1 1/2 cup of basmati rice and cook it with a tsp of oil and transfer it to another bowl.
In a heated pan, add mustard . Once it gets splattered, add the chana dal and urad dal. Fry the green chillies and red chillies along with hing and curry leaves. Once the red chillies gets its light brown color, add the mango and saute.Make sure that, u dont cook the mango too much.Add salt to taste. Now add the rice to the mango mixture and saute it .

Garnish with cilantro and serve it.Wow wat an aroma...................


Make sure that the mango is little sour ( pulippu).If not just add some lemon juice to restore the sourness of mango.
