Mango Rice/ Maamidikaya Pulihora

Mango rice is a traditional rice dish of Andhra that is nourished during Ugadi/ Telugu New Year. This is also a usual summer dish when we find plenty of mangoes during summer season.

This Rice is prepared using ripe mangoes and rice which has unique tangy taste and with aromatic tempering of peanuts, green chillies, red chillies, curry leaves. I love this Rice

I learnt this recipe from my friend Tulasi. Simple and very easy to make which is usually prepared during festival season.
