Malli manga brinji rice

Mango coriander spiced rice

The tang and freshness of raw mango with the sweet flavour of coriander mixed with spices soaked up by softly cooked basmati rice…

Another lunch box try! Pretty simple…


1.5 cups of basmati rice.

2 handfuls of green coriander with stalk

Half a raw mango (kili mooku mangai)

1 onion chopped into thin 1 inch juliens

1 large potato

1 large green chilli

4 cloves of garlic

1/2 inch of ginger

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Oil (I use coconut oil) and salt


Warm 2 table spoons of coconut oil in a deep wok. Add bay leaf and chopped onions and let them caramelise. Add chopped potatoes. ( I use only organic produce and so I dont peel potatoes in most cases).

Drop in the basmati rice and let it fry a bit. Now pour in 3cups of water and throw in some salt and turmeric powder. Close wok and let the rice cook.

Meanwhile, in a food processor add the rest of the ingredients- ginger, garlic, chilli, corinader, raw mango. Make a fine paste.

When the rice is just about to cook fully, add the paste and let the remaining water absorb flavours and induce them in the rice.

Top it up with ghee and that is it!!
