Tangy Mango Rice~ Mamidikaya pulihora

Ummm.. aaahh...errghh. My reactions  when I had to cook after a 9 hour shift and then eat something before I doze off for the day. Constant changes in the shifts sometimes get on your nerves and hunger pangs are quite common.  You have to search for left over ingredients in the pantry to dish up something and satiate your stomach.
I love one pot meals which do not require side dishes to accompany and they are easy to prepare if you can boost up the nutritional profile of any dishes by adding some veggies. One such one pot meal is Tangy Mango rice aka Mamidikaya pulihora which is prepared in Andhra when you have loads and loads of mangoes available in harsh Summer season. I learnt this recipe recently and I am completely hooked to its taste and the flavor. Every alternate day I crave for something tangy and I know tangy means this rice. Tangy mango flavor is balanced with spices like red chilly, curry leaves, jeera etc. Enjoy this delicate yet taste flavorful recipe.

Salt -as per taste
Bengal gram -1/2 tsp
Onion- 1 medium sized chopped (optional)
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp

How do I go about it/ Preparation-

Take a heavy bottomed pan and heat oil in it. Now add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add jeera, dry red chillies, bengal gram, onions, green chilly, curry leaves and hing. Toss them till golden brown. To this mixture add grated raw mango and saute for 1-2 mins. Add salt, turmeric powder and roasted ground nuts. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Finally add cooked rice and combine all the ingredients well.  Cook for another minute and transfer the contents onto a serving plate. Serve hot.

My Notes:
I love the taste of onions which catch the sourness of mangoes and give a twist to the recipe. The original recipe does not include onions.
I find it really difficult to mix the ingredients in a pan. Ideally I will mix the ingredients in a plate with my hand to ensure that they are combined well and then cook it for 2-3 mins
Use left over rice or rice cooked in Electric cooker.
