Mango Masala Rice

Mango Masala Rice

Simple, easy and quick recipe for all those busy days when there ain’t enough time to make an elaborate dinner.  During my school days and in no internet era, I was somehow fond of collecting recipes, attending cooking classes and documenting all of those in an artistic way in my recipe notebook.

I came across this notebook while I was on a de-cluttering and cleaning spree a few days ago. I realised, that is my treasure which has so many authentic recipes and I am go glad to now share it with all of you.

This recipe is a combination of raw mango and ripe mango which balances the sweetness and tart in each other. Use of coconut highlights the flavour even more. The use of red chillies is towards on the high heat side. You may adjust the heat quotient as per the dietary and taste preferences. Add the jaggery or sweetener only if the ripe mangoes are not sweet enough. I hope you enjoy reading the detailed recipe in the recipe card below.
