Mavidikaya Pulihora - Mango Rice

Mavidikaya Pulihora - Mango Rice
 Ugadi celebrations at home were low key, made traditional Ugadi Pachadi and mavidikaya pulihara as prasadam/offering. Well it sure was a challenge to get the kids out of home by 7.30 with lunches packed and then being able to get to work to attend an early meeting. Some times I think I work and feel like a robot, there is constantly something to do or attend to.

Coming to today's recipe mango rice is a favorite of mine, the raw and sour the mango the better rice taste, we how ever in bayarea are not fortunate  to get raw mangoes that taste sour, for most part the greenest of the mangoes taste sweet, yesterday's was no exception except it was not too sweet.


1 cup rice
1 raw mango peeled and grated
2-3 tbsp of lemon juice ( in case mango does not taste sour or has sweet flavor)
1 tbsp of turmeric

For seasoning
3 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp mustard seeds
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tbsp jeera
2-3 tbsp Channa dal
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
5-6 green chilies
2 tbsp of ginger finely chopped
pinch of hing
20 curry leaves

1. Boil rice in a rice cooker add tbsp of oil or spray pam and allow to cook, adding oil will make rice not to get sticky.
2. Remove from cooker add haldi, grated mango and salt to the rice and mix till all of them are well incorporated. Keep aside and allow to cool down. You can leave for couple of hours and allow the flavors to soak in.

3. Now heat a pan add oil when oil is warm add all the ingredients mentioned for seasoning.
4. Saute till mustard starts to splutter, remove from heat and add to mango rice.

5. Mix seasoning well and adjust for salt, garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

This tastes even better as left over, wishing all of you belated Ugadi.

Yay! You are back in business :) Sri- I've been dreaming of mango rice for a while now. Mom is coming next month, I'm going to get her to make this- double happiness! We also have another version of this called chitranna where the mango and spices are ground and then mixed with semiya or rice. Happy ugadi to you too!
