Mangoes are everyone’s favorite. Be it a fruit or used as. a vegetable, Mangoes are loved by everyone. In Indian cooking, raw mango is widely used in many regions to make pickles, pachadi, sambar, curries, and rice too. I usually make mango sambar, which is our family favorite, and sometimes this rice too for the lunch box. Trust me this mango masala rice tastes great for a lunch box. As always, the taste of any variety rice enhances more when it is left to stand for some time.

This Mango Masala rice is a blend of spicy, fresh masala powder that is combined with the tangy grated mangoes in every bite. I have used cashew nuts for the crunch and you may replace them with peanuts if you like that way.
