Ingredients for rice:

  • 1.5 cups grated raw mango
  • 4 tbsp peanuts
  • salt to taste

Ingredients for masala:

  • 1.5 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp asafoetida powder
  • 4 red chillies

  • 1/2 cup grated coconut

Ingredients for seasoning and garnish:

  • 1 red chilli
  • a few curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

Start with rice: cook it in a casual way and leave for getting cold. Then take a half of mango and all the ingredients for masala, and grind them to get a paste. Heat a pan with oil. After that combine the ingredients for seasoning with the peanuts and bake it till the peanuts turn golden. Then add another half of mango, and cook for a couple of minutes. Then add masala, and keep cooking for a while. Take the rice and slowly mix it with masala, and garnish it with coriander leaves. Enjoy your meal!
