Raw mango's season has already started. So I usually make this Karnatak special dish "Chitranna" on Ugadi. This is a variety of rice and can be made with Lime and in season with raw mango.

Cooked Rice - 2 Cups (preferred basmati)
Grated raw Mango - 3 table spoon
Roasted peanuts - 2 table spoon
Roasted gram dal - 2 table spoon
Green chilies (chopped) - 2-3
Grated fresh coconut - 1/4 cup
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 table spoon
Curry leaves - 5-6
Oil - 1 table spoon
Mustard seeds -1 tea spoon
Asafetida - 1 Pinch
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Sugar - 1 tea spoon
Salt as per taste.

Spread rice in a plate. Add salt, sugar, grated raw mango (you can substitute it with Lemon juice) and mix wel. Heat oil in Kadai, add mustard seeds, when it starts spluttering, add Asafetida , turmeric powder in it. Then add curry leaves, Green chilies, roasted peanuts, roasted gram dal and cook it for 1 minute. Let the tadaka get cool. Pour it on rice. Mix well with hands. Garnish it with coconut and coriander leaves. I love to eat it with curd.
