Raw Mango Rice Recipe | Mangai Sadham | Mango Rice | Lunch Box Recipes

As mentioned in few of my earlier posts, I am very crazy about mango and jack fruit. I can sit and eat just the mangoes and jackfruits, the whole day skipping all other food. During my recent India trip, dad has reserved some homegrown fresh mangoes and jackfruits. I enjoyed it to the core and along with the ripe mango, dad had some raw mangoes too. Vanitha akka made mango pickle, aviyal and fish curry using those raw mangoes. Jany was eating the raw mango with some salt and chilli powder. Being a blogger, the first thing comes to mind after seeing raw mango in the tree, is to use it for the blog. Hence, I planned and prepared this mango rice to post it here. It came out very well and dad liked it very much. We had it with Drumsticks Thoran, Mutton Chukka Varuval and Sambharam. Let us move on to the recipe:
Cooked Rice - 3 Cups 
Raw Mango(Grated) - 1 Cup
Green Chilli - 2(Slitted) 
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp  
Asafoetida - a generous pinch 
Salt - as required
To Temper: 
Oil - 1 tsp 
Mustard - 1 tsp 
Channa Dal - 1 tsp 
Curry leaves - a sprig 
Cashew Nuts - 10  
1. Cook the rice and allow it to cool completely. Peel the skin of the mango and grate it.
2. In a pan, add some oil and allow the items under 'To Temper' to crackle. Then add the grated raw mango, turmeric powder and asafoetida.
3. Saute it in low flame until the moisture leaves completely. It takes 5 to 7 minutes. Add required salt and switch off the flame. Now, add the cooled rice and mix it all together until everything is well combined.
Serve the yummy rice with any poriyal and appalam.
I served it with Murungaikai Thoran, Mutton Chukka varuval, Sambharam and Appalam.
Points to remember:
  • You can replace the green chilli with dry red chillies too. You can also roast the cashew nuts in ghee and add it at the end.
  • I have used basmathi rice and normal rice can also be used for the same result. 
  • Before adding the rice to the thokku, allow the rice to cool completely. If it is hot, the rice becomes mushy while mixing.

Warm Regards,
