Mango Rice

Mango Rice has become a big hit in my family. This is one of the recipe I wrote it down from my Mom long time ago. Planning to prepare this dish I would buy 2 or 3 mangoes every time I go to the Indian stores. But we will end up eating them raw with salt and chilly powder.Still I feel the sour taste in my mouth. Back in India whenever I go to Nalli (Silk House in Chennai) first my eyes onto the mango slices being sold outside the shop. MK would scold me for eating on the road..but I never used to listen. During our last vacation, MK also joined the club and we were roaming thorough out T.NAGAR with the Mango slices in our hands :-)

Coming to the recipe it is similar to our good old lemon rice but addition of mango adds more taste. Shweets started to love this a lot. Whenever I ask what she wants to eat..she says "MANGO RICE" be it breakfast, lunch or Dinner time. Surely kids will like it.Try and Enjoy !!!!
