Raw Mango Rice (Mamidikaya Pulihora)

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
Coconut powder 3tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Green chillies 3-4 nos (verticaly slitted)
Peanuts 1/4 cup
Cashew 10 pieces (Optional)
Coriander leaves for garnish
Salt to taste
Seasoning (oil, chana dal, urad dal, mustard seeds, jeera, dried red chilli, curry leaves)

Method of Preparation - 
Grind coconut,green chillis and salt.

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 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.

Serve hot.
