Raw Mango Rice / Mangai Sadam Recipe

Raw Mango Rice
Raw Mango Rice is my fav...I love all tangy rice varieties like puliyodharai,lemon rice etc. I love this rice with little sweet taste so I always choose slightly ripe mango :)

I am taking a off tomorrow so my weekend starts from tomorrow itself :) Its a great relief actually as I've planned few pending works to be completed this weekend and now having 3 days in hand I've to utilise it.This time not much on the cooking front for sharmis passions so my drafts should speak for few more weeks :) When I saw this recipe from a tamil magazine I instantly wanted to try, as it looked flavourful and tempting. And it didnt disappoint me at all, yummy tangy rice ready.

This is sure a easy variety rice which is quick fix for lunch. Potato chips or papad is a nice combination for manga sadam. There are lot of ways this manga sadam can be done but recently I found this recipe suiting to our family taste so this is going to be my keeper :)

Have a nice happening weekend and see you all on Monday.....!
