Raw Mango -Flavoured Rice

Mango rice is a great transformation of plain rice into tangy- spicy flavourful dish. There are many variations to this dish. This is one of the simplest method am posting and it truly tastes awesome when had with chutney, pickle or any preserve. It tastes good as it is but you know they say ‘Two is a company’ ;) it’s always better to have an accompaniment.
Before giving out the recipe here’s an awesome joke, got it this morning from my cousin brother, I almost fell off the chair laughing…read on

Santa singh went to a Phone booth and slapped the operator twice!
Guess why?....
Because it was written on a board: ‘Dial karne se pehle krupeya do lagaiye! :)

Recipe for Mango Rice:

1 cup grated raw mango (peeled)
2 cups Rice, cooked and cooled
5-6 Curry leaves
½ tsp Turmeric powder
A pinch of Asafoetida/hing
1 tsp Urad dal
1tsp Chana dal
1 tsp Mustard seeds
2-3 Green chillies slit
Salt to taste
2-3 tsp oil

To Garnish:
2-3 tbsp Coriander finely chopped
2-3 tbsp thinly chopped coconut pieces


1. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel.

2. Add urad dal, chana dal when it starts browning add mustard seeds and curry

3. When they start to pop add slit green chillies, asafoetida,
salt, turmeric powder and sauté for just a few seconds.

4. Next to the tempering add the grated raw mango and mix well so all the
seasoning blends well with it. Sauté for sometime, add the cooked rice to it and
mix well for the rice to mix evenly with the other ingredients.

5. Check and adjust the salt if necessary.
Take it off the flame and garnish with
coconut pieces and coriander leaves

6.Serve hot with accompaniment of your choice

Note: 1. you could use coconut oil for tempering the dish tastes even better.
2. You can also add roasted and crushed peanuts .

I have been going thru your posts. This rice, similar version had been cooked for us by a friend, & i loved it. only once i got to eat this, i never made this, but once it heats up I'll make this.

ok now: santa singh calls the ariline company & asks how long it takes to go from bombay to delhi. The operator was not sure, so he goes.."sir 1 minute".. thinking he will ask someone & get back to him..santa singh says "thank you" & hangs up.
