Mamidikaya Annam/Pulihora/Mango Rice

Mango rice is basically  cooked rice mixed with grated mango and tadka. Ammamma(mom's mom) and amma made (still ) mamidikaya annam/ mango rice every summer. We have a mango tree in our backyard and also get mangoes from our groves in the village. All the kids looked forward for this treat. I bought these mangoes to make chutney but opted to make this instead and am so happy I did :).

2 cups rice (raw rice)
2 cups grated sour raw mango(adjust to your taste)
15 cashew nuts(optional)
15 peanuts(optional)
1 tsp avalu/mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
3 dried red chillies torn
5-6 green chillies slit (adjust)
8-10 curry leaves
2 pinches turmeric
1 tbsp urad dal
1&1/2 tsp chana dal
1/2 tsp chopped ginger
2-3 tbsps oil
A pinch of hing

Method :
Cook rice with a little oil in it (it should not be mushy and should retain its shape) and fluff with fork, keep aside. Heat oil in a kadai and when hot, add the mustard seed, cumin seeds. When they start to splutter, add cashew nuts and peanuts, urad dal, chana dal  and saute for 2 mins or until they are roasted. Add the dried red chillies, slit green chillies, curry leaves, turmeric, hing and saute for a min. Add the grated mango and salt and saute for 2-3 mins, check for salt and switch off. Add the cooked and fluffed rice and mix/fold in gently. You can also add a tbsp of chopped cilantro if u like. Enjoy!!!
