MANGO RICE RECIPE

     Mango rice is an easy one to make and i can say this is a perfect lunch box menu. Recently i made this and my son who never tries any new food apart from usual rasam and curd rice, ate this and he relished this a lot. What else can make a mom happy. Here comes the recipe of the simple mango rice.

Note:

  1. The addition of mango depends on the sourness of the mango.
  2. If it is very sour then reduce the quantity.
  3. Do not add the mango when the rice is very hot.
  4. Do not over cook or mash the rice.

  26. Jayashri the mangai sadam looks fantastic. Very beautifully clicked, I add little bit of ginger also to this. If you like its flavor next time try it and I think ginger makes it taste even better.
