Raw mango rice is also known as  Mangai Sadam or Mamidikaya Pulihora. There is another version of mango rice from Karnataka cuisine known as mavinakayi chitranna. In this, mangoes are pureed unlike grated mangoes in this recipe.

In the summer, mangoes are widely available in fresh produce section. How can you miss the recipe made from raw/green mangoes? So today, I come up with raw mango rice. This rice recipe is from Andhra Pradesh, a state of India.

This mango rice is sometimes a part of menu on Ugadi festival in place of lemon rice. Green Mango Rice is prepared almost same as Lemon rice. But here tanginess is coming from mangoes instead of lemon juice.

This recipe is very easy to make and very quick if you have cooked rice ready or have some leftover in fridge. If so it will be ready in only 10 minutes. If you are making on special occasion then you can add cashew nuts along with peanuts in the recipe.
