For Mango mix

  • When it starts to splutter add in the slit green chillies, grated ginger and red chilli
  • Once its cooked for a 3 sec add in the grated or ground green mango to the mix. Let it all cook for about 5 minutes. you will see the mango change color.
  • Then add in the dry powders, Turmeric, red chilli powder, salt and Amchoor(dry mango) powder to the pan.
  • Let tis all cook together for another 5 mins
  • Once the oil starts to leave the sides add in the cooked peas and grated coconut and mix well. Give the mixture another 5-8 minutes to mix in.
  • Now the thokku or the mango rice mix is ready.

Preparing the rice dish

  • Remove half of the mango coconut mix in a clean bowl. In the remaining half of the mix add in the hot rice and let it rest.
  • Do not mix right away. Let the mix cool down so to avoid breaking of the rice. When the rice is cool down mix it well with the mango coconut mix
  • You can adjust the thokku mix to adjust to taste as needed. I used about 5-6 tbs for 2 cup cooked rice.
