Mango Rice

A simple yet my favourite one pot meal is this mango rice. U can make this rice in no time , ofcourse u can use any other veggie ( which gives flavour to the rice when cooked ) rice following the same method . I's so happy to make this rice when VJ said he is gonna eat outside , I know, u guys must be thinking, what ..?!  Yep, again the same fact, he hates mango. Before  my baby A , I used to make two seperate meals, one for me and the other for VJ , But now, I hardly find time to make one quick set of meal, ohh yeah, he is keeping my hands full, all day..  :)  . At the same time I grab every single opportunity to make my tummy happy by making such kinda quickie yet delicous n flavourful meal..

Ingredients :

Cooked rice -- 2 cups ( preferable Basmati )
Grated raw mango -- 3/4 cup ( acc to ur taste )
Cashews -- a handful
Peanuts / Groundnuts -- a handful
Turmeric Powder -- a pinch
Salt -- to taste
Green chillies -- 2 no, slit opened

For Seasoning :

Ghee -- 1 tsp
OIl -- 2 tsp

Method :

Take a wide bottomed kadai and pour the oil and ghee together. Add the mustard seeds once the oil is hot and let them crack. Then add the hing . Now add the cumin seeds and fry them. Later add channa and urad dal and fry them in the medium low heat until they turn golden. Add the peanuts and cashewsd as well. Fry them till they turns crisp. Now add the dry red chillies and mix them well in the oil. Drop in the grated mango along with the green chillies and turmeric powder and saute them for 2 minutes.
