Mango Rice

Mango rice or Manga sadham will take place almost in all the baby shower functions. I am dedicating this recipe to my dear friend Subbu, who is expecting her baby in March. I wish her good luck and a safe delivery.

Subbu is one of the important persons in my life who stands with me in all  ups and downs. I am very lucky to have her in my life. She used to take care of me like my mom. Such a innocent and and lovely person to be with. She is not much into blogging or other social media, if i share this link to her, she will be happy for sure.

Now about Mangoes... who doesn't like the tangy mangoes with chili powder and salt mix.. hmmm.. In childhood, I used to eat this without my mom's knowledge. That tastes awesome...
Ok.. Let us get into the recipe and make  a virtual treat for my friend.
