Maavinkaay Chitranna/Raw mango rice/ Maamidikaaya Chitrannam

Print Friendly and PDF

This is a very common breakfast at my place during festivals as it is easy to prepare and saves time to prepare the other special time consuming dishes. I absolutely love this simple rice because of the tanginess of mango.In any case mango in any form,is liked by everyone.

I am sending this entry for Single Serving Recipes @ spicy rasam hosted by sahaja.

2 Cups Cooked rice
1 cup grated raw mango(thotapuri/Bengaloora)
7-8 slit green chillies
3-4 tbsp chopped coriander
1/4 cup groundnuts
6-8 curry leaves
1 tbsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp haldi(turmeric)

Heat oil in a big kadai, crackle mustard seeds, add groundnuts and fry until skin comes out. Now add urad dal,chana dal,green chillies,curry leaves and fry till the chillies are crisp.Add grated mango(save 1/4 cup for the finishing touch) and turmeric and fry for 2-3 minutes.Cool the mixture completely.Now add rice,salt,grated mango(kept aside),chopped coriander and mix everything well(hand or a long ladle does the job here).

Note: Rice should not be hot while mixing,otherwise it becomes mishy-mashy.

Its been so long since i eat maamidikaya pulihora (raw mango rice). I don't prepare it here bcz my husband doesn't like pulihora and whenever i visit india, raw mangos are not in season... although there days, looks like raw mangos are available year round... :)
