  • 1 cup raw rice
  • 3/4 cup grated raw mango from a medium sized raw mango
  • 2 tablespoons oil sesame or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons urad dal
  • 2 teaspoons channa dal
  • 3 green chilies slit
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts
  • 10 cashews broken
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • salt to taste


Pressure Cooking The Rice

  • Pick and rinse the rice grains well.
  • Add them to a pressure cooker followed with water. I use 3 cups water for 1 cup rice.
  • Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles
  • Once the pressure settles down, transfer to a wide plate, gently fluff up the rice and let it cool down well.

Making Mango Rice

  • Rinse, wipe and peel the mango.
  • Using a grater, grate the mango finely discarding the stone
  • Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil in a pan. Temper with mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal, slit green chilies and curry leaves. Saute well til the lentils turn golden and curry leaves are crispy.
  • Now add peanuts and cashews. Also add turmeric powder and mix well. Saute till cashews and peanuts are fried well.
  • Add the grated raw mango.
  • Mix well, add required salt and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the mangoes turn mushy and soft.
  • Now add the cooked rice, 2 teaspoons sesame oil.
  • Mix very gently.
  • Serve mango rice warm or at room temperature with a simple raita or pickle or vadam.


Vary salt and green chilies as per taste
Let the rice cool thoroughly before packing in lunch.
