Raw Mango Rice

This has become my most favorite flavored rice. It’s crazy how I claim every item that I cook to be my favorite. But it is the fact. I seem to develop a liking for almost every rice item I have been cooking these days.

Rice is a very unassuming food item. It can very well harmonize itself with any other ingredient to give a completely different flavor and dish each time never failing to surprise you.
I tried Raw Mango Flavored Rice this time which is a more subtle version of the lemon rice and has an excellent aroma and still very humble.
Add a simple yogurt dip (Raita) and quickly sauté some curry leaves with potato fry . And you are all set for a lavish lunch. Believe me you will call it lavish.
End it with a simple halwa and get ready for the loads of accolades.

What You Need:

1 cup Basmati Rice cooked
1 big raw mango cut and ground to a coarse paste in a blender
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
3 dry chili broken to half
Hing to taste
3 to 4 green chili chopped
Some curry leaves
Pinch of turmeric powder
1 tbsp chana dal
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tbsp peanuts
2 tbsp cashew
Salt to taste

Steps To Make:

We need to start with heating oil in the non stick pan where your cooked rice won’t stick.
Add mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds and then broken red chili. Let them crackle.
Next goes in the chana daal and urad daal. Let the lentils cook a bit.
Then throw in the peanuts and cashew nuts. Cook for a minute on slow flame.
Next comes the curry leaves and green chilies for the flavor and freshness.
Add very little turmeric powder and the blend mango.
Cover and cook for 10 minutes on low flame.
Finally add the cooked rice  and salt to taste.
Cook for 6 to 7 minutes on low flame.
Gently toss so the rice will not break.
