Raw Mango Rice

When mangoes are in season, mangai sadam (raw mango rice) is a must in my kitchen. I never miss the chance to make mango rice. It’s one of those simple recipes which can be prepared in a jiffy. Grate mangoes and then saute them with few other ingredients and mix rice. This will be a perfect lunch box recipe and the color full, flavor full rice will be kids favorite too.

I am lucky enough to have cool neighbors who very generously distribute the mangoes grown in their garden with me every single year without fail. And I never fail to make mangai sadam and mango pickle(both instant and authentic mango pickle) whenever I get my hands on these delicious, organically grown mangoes.

Now that I am talking about my neighbors and their delicious mangoes, it reminds me how I missed posting something that I make regularly whenever mangoes are in season. I mean both mango rice and mango pickle. It’s surprising that I haven’t posted any pickle recipe yet! Not that I do a lot of pickling at home, but I do once in a while and I have clearly ignored taking photos and posting them on my blog. My to-do list just got updated with “shoot and post pickle”.  :)
