Maavinkaayi Chitranna (Raw Mango Rice)– Recipe 1, Step Wise|Karnataka Cuisine

 
DSC_3871-001

Hello friends.
As I have mentioned earlier too that with the onset of summer the markets get flooded with Mangoes. We try to use mangoes in all forms whether it’s ripe or raw. I make many recipes using raw mangoes and this is S’s favorite. He had reminded me several times that I had not prepared this and his favorite Maavinkayi chutney which I have posted earlier.
Today I decided to please him so I made this Chitranna, which is a preparation with rice. Now when it comes to regional recipes from Karnataka my ultimate source is my MIL so to re-affirm the recipe I called her up and am glad I did that because she gave me more variations to the basic recipe, I thought mentally ‘Sone pe Suhagaa’. This is the very basic recipe and the  many variations  which I learnt will surely post gradually.
 
 
This particular recipe is extremely close to the basic vaggarne anna or what we call phodnicha bhaat in Marathi or baghara chawal in hindi. If you have grated mangoes and cooked rice this is a quick one to make. I love the simplicity of this recipe as with minimum ingredients an extremely tasty preparation is made. I personally love such recipes, as they are always a winner and perfect to impress others!Wink So here goes the recipe..

3-4 grated raw mangoes (small ones)
7-8 green chilies
1/2tsp turmeric

mustard seeds
4-5tbsp chopped cilantro

Method
The rice should be cooked in advance, cooled and the grains separated using hand.
Heat oil and add the mustard seeds and let them splutter, now add the urad-chana dal mix and peanuts and fry them, once they turn golden, tip in the curry leaves and chopped green chilies.
Add the grated mango, turmeric and salt to taste, mix and saute till cooked soft.

Mix this to the cooked rice along with some chopped cilantro. Mix gently without breaking the grains.

Verdict- The rice is extremely tasty, when I mixed the rice and tasted it to check the salt I could not control myself with one spoon and landed eating more. It is tangy and spicy and tantalizes the taste buds. Too good to resist and extremely simple to make.
The ingredients here are as per our requirements one is free to adjust as per one’s taste buds.
