Mamidikaya Pulihora | Raw Mango Rice | Mavinakayi Chitranna

Mamidikaya Pulihora or Mango rice - a simple and delicious quick rice recipe made with raw mango and tempered with spices.  This is very similar to lemon rice.  If lemon rice is one of your favs, you will love this one too. I am a fan of all quick rice varieties from South India - Lemon rice, Tomato rice/pulao, Puliyodharai, Coconut rice to name a few.  These come in handy when you are running short of time as they are simple and do not require too many ingredients, plus they taste yummm too.
