If you like lemon rice / Lime rice, I am sure you will love mango rice / maangai Saadham. It can be made in 5 minutes and tastes lovely. If you have never tasted this or tried this before, why not make use of this mango season and try this at home.
Raw Mango – 1
Steamed rice – 2 Cups
Mustard seeds – 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds – 1 teaspoon
Urad dal / Black gram dal – 2 teaspoon
Red chillies – 2
Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
Turmeric powder – 1 pinch
Wash and peel mango
Some mangoes can be very sour. So amount of shredded mango required depends on the sourness of the mango. Make a little extra and the extra mango can be made into yummy mango pickle in 5 minutes.
Heat a teaspoon of oil. I prefer ghee or gingelly / sesame oil. Any cooking oil can be used.
Add mustard seeds and when it has stopped spluttering, add cumin seeds and stir fry for a few seconds. Then add black gram dal and stir fry till it is reddish brown in color.
Add red chillies followed by shredded mango. Stir fry for a few seconds till the moisture evaporates. Add salt and a pinch of turmeric powder.
Switch off the stove and add steamed rice and stir it gently till the masala coats the rice evenly.
Enjoy Mango rice / Maangai sadham with chutney.
