Whenever I have confusion on what to cook for rice accompaniment, or during busy days, Variety rice is the one which helps me. Easy to cook, and a complete meal. I was thinking of coconut rice, but when I opened the fridge, saw raw mangoes and brinjal. Brinjal rice is my favorite, but whenever I buy Mangoes I always do instant mango pickle. This time, for a change, I tried Mango rice and after tasting it, decided I should do this frequently.
Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 – 25 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Entree
Cooked Rice – 3 cups
Raw Mango – 1 cup, peeled and grated ( or chopped in a chopper)
Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
Salt – as needed
Sesame Oil – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds -1/8 tsp
Bengal gram/channa dal – 1 tsp
Peanuts – 1/4 cup
CashewNuts – 2 tbsp
Red chilli – 3 (According according to your spice)
Asafetida- generous pinch
Peanuts -1/4 cup
Curry leaves – few
- Cook rice and spread it in a wide pan
- Add oil to another pan. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds. when it splutters, add bengal gram, peanuts and cashewnuts , red chilli and Asafoetida
- When dal turns golden brown, add turmeric powder, salt and curry leaves
- Add grated mangoes and mix well to combine with the spices. Need not cook for a long time
- Add cooked rice and mix gently. Enjoy this rice with any chips like Microwave potato chips or any fry like Oven Roasted Cheppan Kizhangu, Potato Fry
- Use sour/tangy mangoes for this dish. If your mangoes are not sour enough, then add a little more than 1 cup
- You can also add coconut to this rice
