Raw mango rice is one of my favourite rice dish as like lemon rice. But dunno why i havent posted my favourite rice till now in my space. Since i chosed mango for this week's blogging marathon as theme, this time i dont want to miss to post our family favourite mango rice.This raw mango rice is cooked with grated raw mango and the tanginess for this rice comes from the raw mango and there is no need to add lemon juice in this rice.
We make two version of mango rice, one version is to mix the cooked rice with grated raw mango and the another version is cooked rice mixed along with raw mango paste and then seasoned. Obviously for the second version,the seasoning plays an important role while in the first version, the grated raw mango itself plays a fabulous role. Tangy raw mango will works out wonder for making this mango rice. I usually add the peanuts in the tempering and the addition of peanuts gives a fabulous taste to this rice.If you dont like peanuts, you can also add cashewnuts in the tempering.
