Spicy & Sour Mango Rice

Do you like Mangoes? Who doesn't like mangoes, after all its the king of fruits. Summer is almost here and we see mangoes every where. Staying in USA for more than a decade now, I miss eating those yummy mangoes everyday. Though we get mangoes here, they just don't taste like the ones we get in India. Anyways be happy with what you get is my policy. 

 Now, its also a season all those yummy pickles are made with raw mangoes, tomatoes, gooseberries and what not. Coming to raw mangoes we get pretty good mangoes here which are rarely sour in taste. They are used to pickles,  juices, jams and also cooked with dal and rice. We use raw mangoes in Fish curry as well,  it gives very nice tangy taste to the dish. As we are cooking with grains for this whole month, I have made a spicy and tangy mango rice. Luckily I got a mango which is very sour / tangy this time from market, which is the key ingredients to the dish am making today. It is other wise called as mango pulihora or mamidikaya pulihora too. Here goes this yummy dish for Day 18 under the theme " Biryani / Pulao / Khichdi recipes with grains".

I don't know whether my earlier comment went through. The tangy rice is one the easiest to prepare and tastes yummy. You are right, we need to feel blessed at least to get hold of ingredients that are not grown locally. I happen to add a little lemon juice if the mangoes tend to be not sour ones.

This is a must have for Ugadi at our place. Love the simple flavor of the raw mango. I also add lime juice if the mangoes are not sour enough.
