Mango Rice

Easy breezy recipe that my co-worker who is an excellent cook had made it and shared with us all and I must admit that I am a fan ever since. I would have never in a million years thought of such a recipe which could be easy and delicious too. It’s like making lemon rice with a twist yet preserves it’s uniqueness and stands out in taste and texture from those shredded mangoes. My son thoroughly enjoyed this rice dish. And if I can please my fussy 2 year old, I am sure it tastes good. Enjoy making this simple dish when mangoes are plentiful and fresh in season.

    Hi, I’m learning to cook Indian food. Do I need to use unripe mango, or the soft ripe mango we get here in the United States? Thanks!!

      Hi Gaile, Good Luck with Indian cooking. It’s not as hard it seems as long as you have some basic ingredients. Please use raw green unripe mango.

    Hi, I did try to make the Mango rice last weekend. It was very tasty! Except, I probably added a little bit more water to the rice than I should, it’s kind of sticky, not as fluffy as yours. What kind of rice did you use?

    • 365DaysVeg says:

      Amy, I used basmati rice. You can also sona masoori rice. Just cook rice with excess water in a sauce pan or vessel and when you feel it has cooked to the consistency it has cooked, drain the excess water and let it cool. this way it wont be mushy. This is how we prepare rice mostly in north india. Hope this helps.
