Raw mango pulao, easy pulao recipes

Raw mango pulao, a simple and easy pulao recipe made using raw mango, a perfect lunch box recipe. Mangoes are in season and i am posting recipe using ripe mangoes. Raw mangoes somehow we get so often in Singapore, as it is in season everywhere i wanted to post recipes using raw mango too. Generally we make South Indian version of  raw mango rice, but this is a North Indian pulao recipe and it tasted so yum too. I just came across this name of Raw mango pulao in a restaurant menu very long back and just noted down the name. While going through that notebook, i was reminded of that and just tried it randomly and it was well received by every one at home. The crunchiness of the cashew nuts complimented the mango pulao and it paired well with Dabba style dal.
