Mango rice, a tangy south Indian rice dish made with unripe green mangoes.
Green Mango rice is a very traditional rice recipe from South India. It’s mostly made when the green mangoes are in season which is during the spring and summer time.
How to make Indian style mango rice?
To make the mango rice, we sauté the grated mango in a tempering of mustard seeds, green chilly, turmeric, asafotedia and nuts.
This mixture is added to the cooked rice. Make sure the grains are separate. Mushy rice will not work in this recipe.
White rice tastes best in this recipe, but you can use brown rice and quinoa as well. I have made it number of times, it tastes pretty good with brown rice and quinoa.
You can also add some green peas to the recipe.
If the Mango is not sour enough, add some lemon juice as well.
