Raw mango rice / Mangai saadham

Happy Ugadi / baisakhi / nouratha everyone !! :)

I am a lover of mango it might me be raw or riped one , I just love have them any time . Summer season is coming and i was not able control my hands and picked lots of mango from groceries. So here i am with a recipe for mango lovers. This is simple south Indian rice variety which my friends and neighbours used to share with for any occassion . I also made +Aishwarya Srinivasan  "White pumpkin moor kootu" for side dish for this rice. So lets see for the simple and easy mangai saadham/ raw mango rice.


Raw mango-1 ( Peel the skin of the mango and grate it till you reach the seed from all sides)
Turmeric-1/4 tsp
Rice-1 cup 

For tempering

 oil-2 tbsp
Mustard-1 tsp
Urad dal 2 tsp
Channa dal 2 tsp
Peanuts-1 tblsp
Asafoetida-1/4 tsp
Green chillies- 2 no
Red Chillies- 2 no
Curry leaves-1 sprig
salt to taste


  • Cook rice is such a way that each grains are separate. Leave it  to cool
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seed after they splutter add curry leaves, urad dal,  peanuts, channadal saute till light brown. Add chopped mangoes, turmeric powder,  and salt needed.
  • Saute and cook mango for a few minutes . Do not over cook the mangoes.
  • Add cooked rice and mix well.Check for salt. Enjoy with any raita /pachadi,chips or papads or kootu which i made Pumpkin moor kootu - which was an entry for my event " Come on- Lets cook buddies" which i will re-post it in a separate  post.

You even add red chilli pd to this rice and make it masala mango rice.
