Mango Rice

Mango rice is a ANDHRA speciality. Rice mixed with grated unripe mango is as simple and easiest as lemon rice and is served during Ugadi festival. People celebrate the season’s fresh produce of mangoes by preparing mango rice. Lets learn how to make mango rice with Archana......

1 1/2 cup peeled and grated raw mango
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds

1/4 cup peanuts
1/4 tsp hing
1tsp turmeric powder
few curry leaves
5-6 green chillies, slit lenghtwise

3: At the end add grated mango and cook for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and keep aside.
