Mango Ginger & Chickpeas Lemon Rice

Bought some fresh mango ginger pieces during my recent visit to Indian grocery. Back home i prepared thokku with it and this wonderful looking lemon rice with grated mango ginger aka manga inji or maa inji and cooked chickpeas. Its an excellent lunch box dish, gets ready very much easily and quite flavourful,obviously healthy too. This mango ginger is a family of ginger, they tastes like raw mango and looks almost like fresh turmeric.

Ususally we make some fingerlicking kuzhambu, thokku and pickle with this mango ginger, but i want to make something different thats y i went for a quick,easy breezy rice dish with it.This mango ginger have loads of medicinal values and its quite often used various forms in most of the cosmetics, beverages and pharmaceutical products.Sending this rice to my own event CWS-Chickpeas hosted by Kavi.

1/4cup Fresh lemon juice
2cups Cooked rice
1/2cup Cooked chickpeas

For tempering:
1/4tp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
1/4tsp Channa dal
3tbsp Mango Ginger pieces (minced finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
3nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Few Peanuts
Few Curry leaves
3tbsp Oil
1/2tsp Turmeric powder

Mix the already cooked rice,cooked chickpeas with lemon juice and salt, (add lemon juice as ur need).

Now heat the oil and add all the ingredients from the list one by one for tempering except turmeric powder to the hot oil and fry until everything turns brown, add finally the turmeric powder, take care not to burn the turmeric powder.

Add this tempered spices to the rice,toss everything well until the rice and chickpeas gets well mixed.
