Raw Mango & Mushroom Kodomillet Rice/Maangai Kaalan Varagu Saadham

I have created this ultimate, healthy tangy Kodo millet rice for an event. Yes when you are challenged with some interesting ingredients by an another food blogger, seriously you will break your head to come up with some unique ideas. For this month's Shhh Cooking Secretly, started by myself and now the event is taken by Mayuri Patel,Mayuri paired me with Annam, as usual we chitchatted together and decided to go with two interesting ingredients for both of us. Actually the main ingredient of this month's event is Mango, obviously we are supposed to give two more ingredients to our partner to pair with Mangoes. I gave toor dal and shallots to Annam,while she gave me Millets and Mushrooms. When i got these two ingredients to cook along with mango, i decided myself to go with a savory dish.

Initially i wanted to make a pakora with mushrooms to combine with usual raw mango rice by replacing rice with Kodomillet rice. Since none want to have deep fried fritters i immediately dropped that idea. Then i decided to dish out a simple but yet a delicious healthy millet rice with sauteed mushrooms and grated mangoes. These both ingredients works awesome and this millet rice came out extremely delicious and absolutely mildly tangy. Served along with any spicy side dish or with some boiled eggs, one can enjoy thoroughly this interesting dish without any fuss. Thanks to Annam for pulling me to come up with this interesting millet dish and we loved it.

To Cook Kodo millet, bring boil three cups of water. Meanwhile wash a cup of a kodomillet,add it to the boiling water, cook in medium flame until the millets gets well cooked and the water gets disappears. Gently fluff it with a fork.

I am trying to replace rice with kodo millet and I love your recipe. Hopefully I will be able to try it out soon Priya. With mushrooms added to it, I'm sure hubby will love it too.
