Raw Mango - 1 
Rice - 1 cup
Salt - to taste

To Temper

Oil -1 1/2 tsp
Mustard & urad dal -1/4 tsp each
Channa dal - 1 tsp
Cashew - 4 or 5(broken into pieces)
Asafoetida - a pinch
Split roasted peanut - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

First soak the rice for 15 mins and cook it with 2 cup of water in a pressure cooker for 3 whistle or till it's done. Then allow the rice to cool completely

After that peel the mango & grate it finely and keep the ingredients ready for tempering.
Heat the pan with oil , first add mustard ,urad dal, cashew & channa dal  & saute it well.
Then add red chili & peanut,roast it slightly.

After that add green chili,curry leaves ,turmeric powder & asafoetida , give a quick stir & add grated mango & saute it well.
Finally add salt & saute the mango until it turns mushy .Switch off the flame and allow to cool a bit.
Now add the mango masala into rice and mix it well. Check  the salt , if needed ,add it now. I didnt add all the rice cooked from 1 cup of raw rice, around 1/2 cup of cooked rice i kept it aside. Based on the masala, add the cooked rice & stop adding the rice when you felt that the tanginess of the rice is perfect for you.

Tasty & flavorful Mango rice is ready. We had it with masala vadai. You can serve it with appalam or vathal too.


  • Adjust the green chili according to your taste.
  • You need plus or minus extra 1/2 cup of cooked rice for this recipe based on the tanginess of the mango. 
  • Mix the rice with mango masala, once it's completely cooled, otherwise the rice would turn mushy
