Raw Mangoes in Spring/early Summer are a treat for fans of mango pickles. I have nostalgic memories of eating sliced raw mangoes with salt and mirchi powder at the street hawker's stall near home..Yummy...Any way I have made some small changes to the traditional mango rice (Mamidikaya chitrannam or mamidikaya pulihora in Telugu). Raw mango is primarily rich in Vitamin C. A delightful rice to enjoy indeed!!

Ingredients -

Cooked rice 3 cups

Mango 1 medium (1 cup approx) Grated
Roasted Fenugreek powder 1 pinch
Turmeric  1/4 tsp
Green chillies 4-5 nos (vertically sliced)
Coriander leaves for garnish
Salt to taste
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 2 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Dried Red Chili 1-2, Curry Leaves few, Peanuts handful)
Lemon/Lime juice 1-2 tsp (Optional or if the mango is not sour enough)

Method of Preparation - 

In a skillet on a medium-high flame, heat some oil add seasoning, peanuts and cashews. 

After the mustard seeds start crackling, add green chillies turmeric, roasted fenugreek powder and coconut powder.

Add salt and the grated mango. Mix for a couple of minutes.

Remove from the flame, add this mixture to a bowl with the cooked rice and mix well.

Squeeze the lemon juice if required.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot.

This makes its way to Anupama's Mango Moods Event.

Serves 3 Adults
Preparation Time 25 min
