  • 1 cup Rice 
  • 1 Raw mango medium grated
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 Green chillies chopped
  • 2 Red chillies
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 tsp Chana dal 
  • 1 tbsp Groundnuts 
  • Few Curry leaves
  • Pinch Hing


  • Wash the rice thoroughly. Add 1 ½ cups of water for 1 cup of rice and cook.
  • Take the cooked rice in a wide bowl and let it cool.
  • Heat oil in a pan for tempering. Add ground nuts and fry till brown. Then add urad dal, chana dal, red chillies and mustard seeds.
  • Once they splutter, add green chillies, hing (Asafoetida) and curry leaves.
  • Now add the grated mango and cook on a low flame till the mango turns soft. 
  • Quickly toss the contents and turn off the flame. Do not burn the grated mango. 
  • Add turmeric and mix well and turn off the flame.
  • Now add this mixture to the cooked rice. 
  • Add salt and mix well with hands making sure not to crush the rice grains.
  • Check the taste and add salt if required.


* You can also add chilli paste instead of chopped green chillies to make it much hotter.
** You can add the grated mango directly to the rice and mix it instead of cooking in the tempered ingredients. For this, let the rice cool and add the grated mango and mix well. Add the tempered ingredients later.
*** You can also fry all ingredients one by one and add to the rice if you feel the ingredients will get burnt.
