Mango Rice / Mangai Saatham

I want to prepare this mango rice for a long time and now only got the time. My mom used to prepare this when she gets a chance. She add turmeric to the rice and it becomes light yellowish rice. But here, I have not added, since i wanted it to be with the natural colour itself. 


  • Cooked rice - 2 cups
  • Raw Mango - 1
  • Onion - 1
  • Mustard seeds - 2 pinch
  • Urud dal/black gram - 1/2 tsp
  • Chana dal/Bengal gram - 1 tsp
  • Green Chillies - 2 (chopped finely)
  • Curry leaves - few (10 to 15)
  • Cashew nuts - 10 to 12
  • Ghee - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tsp


  • Grate the raw mango.

  • Cut onion lengthwise.
  • In a kadai/wok, add oil and when hot add mustard seeds, urud dal, chana dal and fry till light brown colour.

  • Add the curry leaves and onion and green chillies.
  • Fry till onion becomes translucent.
  • Now add the grated mango and fry for another 2 min.

  • Add the cooked rice and mix well.
  • In another small pan, add ghee and cashews and fry till it becomes slight brown colour.

  • Now transfer the fried cashews with ghee to the mango rice and mix well and serve.

Nice looking dish! I've never tried mango in a rice dish before - I've been missing out, because this is spectacular. Putting tumeric in the rice sounds like a great idea, although I enjoyed seeing it portrayed in its natural color. Good post - thanks.


Wow I'm stunned at all your latest mango oriented dishes!!! Simply awesome and this rice makes me terribly hungry!


I love tangy food like tamarind & lemon rice. This is very new to me.
