One of my favorite dish during mango season is Manga sadam or better known as Mango Rice. It is made with raw mango and simply delicious! It is especially loved by pregnant women because of its sweet and sour flavor. I remember how I used to enjoy it during my pregnancy time :)..
I usually add some shredded coconut along with raw mango which enhances its taste. So, sharing an easy recipe to make some Mango rice..

Another interesting recipe – thanks! I LOVE coconut . . . but have never paired it with mango before.
Oh, YUM! I'm going to have to try this – I love rice and mango and even coconut. The combination sounds like a good one!
I love finding stuff like this online, even if I can't find the ingredients locally. I'll have to imagine what it tastes like!
