Mavinkayi anna

My mom uses raw mango to make flavoured rice during the mango season. I thought that since I had a small kairi in the refrigerator,why not make use of that.I googled for the recipe.I came across one at Padhu's kitchen .

 Ingredients : 1 cup washed rice , 1/4 cup raw grated mango, 1 tbsp peanuts, 1 byadgi mirchi broken into 2-3 pieces, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds,1 tsp urad dal, 2-3 green chillies chopped roughly, a sprig of curry leaves washed,1/4 tsp haldi,1/4 tsp hing, 1-2 tbsp oil,1/2 tsp sugar ( optional ) , salt to taste.

 Method : Pressure cook rice. After the cooker has cooled down ,spread rice in a large plate so that grains are separated. Keep aside.

 In a kadhai ,heat oil. Add mustard seeds.After they splutter add peanuts.Let them brown a little.Add urad dal.After the dal gets golden brown ,add curry leaves followed by byadgi mirchi & chopped green chillies.Add grated mango. Add haldi & hing .

Mix all nicely.Let it cook for 2-3 minutes.Add salt to taste & if you like. 1 tsp sugar  .Let it all cook for 1-2 minutes. Put off gas. Pour the vagar mix of grated mango on to the spread out rice. Mix nicely so that the grated mango vagar coats all rice nicely.Serve with raita or papad.


 It looks just like lemon rice except for those translucent flakes of grated kairi or raw mango . And kairi is a cooling food.Enjoy !
