An evergreen favourite, the Raw Mango Rice is prepared in South Indian homes at least once a week when the mango season is on. A traditional tempering and partially cooked raw mangoes give this rice a tangy flavour and exciting crunch.
While red and green chillies are used to add spice to the rice, assorted dals and peanuts give it a tantalising aroma and interesting mouth-feel. Although used in small quantities, each ingredient including til oil and asafoetida leaves a mark on the final outcome, so make sure you try to follow the recipe precisely.
Enjoy the Raw Mango Rice with papad . You can also serve with side dishes like Cucumber Pachadi , Mango Pickle and Ginger Chutney .
