Mango Fried Rice (Mamidikaya pulihora)

Mango fried rice also known as mamidikaya pulihora in our regional language. After a very long time I was able to bag some raw mangoes form the Indian store. I am glad that I found them, because I was craving for this rice since last month. I didn't even remember when was the last the time I had it. Mango pulihora is easy to prepare and delicious in taste.

Serves: 2; Total time: 30min
Mango medium size- 2
Cooked rice- 3 cups
Green chili- 5 in number
salt to taste
Chana dal (Senaga pappu)-1tbsp
Urad dal (Minapa pappu)-1tbsp
Cumin seed- 1/2tbsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2tbsp
oil- 2tbsp
Cashew nuts-few (Optional)
curry leaves (optional)
Turmeric- pinch

Cut mango and grind it to a coarse paste along with little salt and green chili. Heat oil in a pan and add Chana dal and urad dal and fry till they turn light brown. Now add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and wait till they splatter and add green chili, red chili, cashew nuts and curry leaves (optional). When the green chili is cooked add in turmeric and salt and mix well, now add mango paste and mix well. Cook for 5min stirring in between under medium flame. Now add rice and mix well, cook this for about 1min and turn off the stove. The pulihora is ready to serve. I hope you like my recipe.
