Raw Mango Rice

The good thing about being a part of blogosphere world is adding  more recipes to your  repertoire of existing ones :) Not a bad bargain, right? It is even better as they are all on the web, so it is  hassle free ,especially for someone like me,who moves every 2-3 years this really is an appealing preposition  but mind you-My recipe books are very precious and even if I don't refer to them too often they still are amongst my very dear belongings. Today's recipe was inspired by http://pappuskitchen.blogspot.com/ (Raw mango Rice) the only modifications I have made to the recipe is fresh cooked rice instead of left over and peas instead of carrots. I would have preferred to use left over rice,but there was none:( and I would much rather have used carrots but again there were none:( Not a very happy scene ,I need to go shopping !!!

I have to admit ,that I made the right choice when I decided to prepare this rice,it is FANTASTIC !!! I urge everyone to try this  at least once. I liked the use of raw mango's with curry leaves . Also my daughter loves to eat dinner or lunch without me fussing over her to finish the vegetables on her plate. This rice dish could not get any better for her :)

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

Rice: 2 cups cooked and drained in a colander and then spread on a paper towel to soak excess water
Raw mango's : 2 grated
Oil: 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Red Chilli: 2 whole
Chana dal/ split  Bengal gram : 1tbsp
 Urad dhuli/ Split Black Gram hulled(washed): 1 tsp
Curry leaves: 15-20 dried or fresh
Green Chilli: 2 with a slit through the middle
salt: 1 tsp
Turmeric: 1/8 tsp
cashews: 8-10

Take a kadai and heat 2 tbsp oil in it.
When the oil is hot ,add the mustard seeds,cumin seeds,red chilli,daal's,cashews ,curry leaves and at the end add the grated mango,green chilli  and saute till the masala looks dry and oil starts to appear at the edges. Now add the salt and turmeric and add the rice and very gently mix the rice well,taking care not to break the rice. I enjoyed the rice with bread rolls for dinner.Will post the recipe for bread rolls soon :)
