Mango Rice | Raw Mango Rice

This mango rice is prepared with grated raw mango and fresh ground coconut, fenugreek seed and red chili masala. The sourness of mango and the bitterness of fenugreek seeds are well-balanced with coconut and red chillies. This rice is an amalgamation of all flavors and its a complete meal on its own when served with vadagams or appalam.

I first tried this recipe at my friend’s place. I really enjoyed the dish and got the recipe from my friend. But I didn’t write it down and I didn’t try it right away. It’s been two years. :-) When I saw fresh green mangoes in the stores, I wanted to try something different other the mango pickle. I remembered the mango rice recipe that I tried at my friend’s place and  wanted to try the same. I still remember the taste, so went ahead with experimenting the recipe on my own instead of calling my friend again. After couple of attempts, I got it :-) I love these experiments. :-)

Notes:

  • If the fenugreek seeds are burnt it spoils the taste, so make sure your roast for the masala in low heat.
