ಮಾವಿನಕಾಯಿ ಚಿತ್ರಾನ್ನ – Mavinakayi Chitranna – Raw Mango Rice

Two ways of making the ಮಾವಿನಕಾಯಿ ಚಿತ್ರಾನ್ನ  – Mavinakayi Chitranna. This is the first method. Quite easy, very similar to other rice dishes. I didn’t add ginger, peanuts. Ginger overpowers the taste, and I wanted the taste of raw mango here. You can add it if you wish. Same with peanuts.

Ingredients:

  • Cooked  rice
  • 1/2 raw grated mango
  • 4 green chillies slit length wise
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 3-4 springs coriander leaves
  • 5-6 tsp freshly grated coconut
  • 3 tsp oil, mustard seeds, jeera, urad dal, channa dal, haldi, red chillies, pinch of hing,

Method:

  1. Cook the rice in your rice cooker or pressure cooker. Spread it on a plate and separate the grains.

    Meera, add a bunch of finely chopped menthya soppu with grated mango and fry on low flame. This will give a great flavour to chitranna. Menthya and mavinakai together is heavenly!
