Maangai Sadham/ Raw Mango Rice
This being mango season, I wanted to make use of this opportunity and relish as much mangoes in all possible forms as possible. I bought raw mango from the Indian grocery store and was actually thinking of making some pickle with it. But I ended up making this rice. It came out really good. It had nice flavor and great taste. How I landed up with this recipe????? 2 weeks back, we had gone for dinner to our friend's house and there I tasted this rice. We really liked it and immediately what do you think a bloggers' mind would do???? ;-) Yes, made a note of the recipe and tried it out and posting it now. It is very simple and has little ingredients but tastes very good. Its a nice dish for potlucks rather than regular pulao and biryani varieties. Especially if you do not like too many spices added to the dish, this is very good.
Raw Mano - 1 peeled and grated
Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Yellow Onion - 1 medium
Oil -1 tbsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad dhal - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 6 to 10
Turmeric - a pinch
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tbsp or to taste.
Salt - to taste
Asafoetida - a pinch
Soak basmati rice for about 10 mins and cook in 2 cups of water and keep aside.
In a pan, Heat oil, add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add urad dhal, curry leaves, asafoetida. When It turns golden brown, add onions and saute very well till it caramelizes.
Now add grated mango and keep frying till it becomes tender. Sprinkle water to help the mango cook faster. Add turmeric and red chilli powder and keep frying till all water is absorbed. Add salt and mix well. Remove from heat and keep aside.
When the heat reduces, add cooked rice to it and mix well.
Serve warm with chips or raitha.
See you soon!!!
