Raw Mango Rice !

Raw mango rice is always our family favourite. I have already posted another version of this called Mamidikaya Pulihora which is a no onion no garlic version and a very simple version. 
This rice is different as it has onions, carrots, coconut etc.. and sometimes I even add bell peppers which gives a nice crunchy texture to the dish.
It makes a perfect option for lunch box in the morning hurry.


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
  • 3/4 cup grated raw mango (can use upto 1 cup)
  • 2 tbsp oil / ghee
  • 1 tsp Channa Dal
  • 1 tsp Urad Dal
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • a pinch of Hing (Asafoedita)
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 2 tbsp Peanuts
  • few curry leaves
  • 2 broken red chillis
  • 2 - 3 Green chillis (slit)
  • 1 medium onion (sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • salt as needed
  • 1/4 cup Grated Carrot
  • 2 tbsp Fresh grated coconut
  • coriander leaves (chopped)


  • Peel and grate the raw mango. 
  • Heat oil in a kadai/pan and once hot add the mustard seeds, urad and channa dal.
  • Allow them to turn golden brown and then add the peanuts, cumin seeds and asafoedita. (and curry leavesif u have).

  • Fry the peanuts for few seconds and then add the slit green chillis and the dry red chillis.
  • Add sliced onions and saute till it turns soft.
  • Throw in the grated mangoes and saute everything togther.

  • Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder and grated carrots and mix everything well.

  • When the mango and carrot are cooked well, add the cooked rice and mix gently.
  • Finally add fresh grated coconut and give a mix. Garnish with coriander leaves.


  • Adding carrots and coconut are optional, but it gives a slight sweet taste along with the tangy mangoes and adds to the taste of the dish.
  • Adjust spices as per taste.
  • Can be made with left over rice too.
  • Add cashew nuts for a richer version.
  • Serve with padad or fryums.
