Raw mango rice / mavina kayi chitranna  is a delicious rice preparation from South India. It is known by different names as mavin kayi chitranna in karnataka , mamidkayi pulihora in Andhra pradesh or mangai sadam in Tamil nadu.

Today is Mother’s Day and this post of raw mango rice is dedicated to my mother and mother in law. I am greatful to them for all the values and love they have showered on me. God could not be everywhere and hence he made mothers goes the saying.  They are the source of utmost strength which keeps the family sailing smoothly.

We really know the value of mother when we become one. We then realise the number of sacrifices they made for us. It is so true that the heart of mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will find forgiveness.

The best thing about summer is the mangoes. One can enjoy this fruit only in this season. We tend to prepare a huge variety of dishes with mango, from pickles to desserts. Raw mango rice is one such preparation which is not only tasty but can be made in half an hour.

Raw mango rice is a dish relished by all South Indians. It is usually prepared during Ugadi and paired with papads and some sweet dishes.

    Chitranna is an all time favorite. I used to trade my box with a colleague as I had tamilian stuff or parathas and she always had Chitranna. We both enjoyed the trade off.. Thank you for bringing back the memories.
