How to make Mango rice (manga sadam)
Prep time -under 10 mins
Cook time - under 10 mins
Raw Mango - 1 (medium size)
Cooked rice -3 cups
Chilli powder - 2 tsp (my homemade powder is not very hot)
Turmeric powder -a generous pinch
Salt as required
For the seasoning
Sesame seed oil -2 tbsp
Mustard seeds -1 tsp
Curry leaves -few
Peel the skin of mango and cut it into small pieces.Discard the seed.
Cook rice is such a way that each grains are separate. After cooking rice, spread it in a plate adding a tsp of sesame seed oil. This is done so that the rice will not stick together. Leave it to cool
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seed,curry leaves, when mustard splutters, add chopped mangoes, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt needed.
Saute and cook mango for a few minutes till the raw flavor of the chilli powder goes.Do not over cook the mangoes.
Add cooked rice and mix well.Check for salt. Enjoy with any raita /pachadi,chips or papads.
