Mango Rice

I learnt this recipe from my dad. Didn’t know from whom he learned this. It is a simple and tasty dish. We used to make this in mango season. But nowadays most of the vegetables are available in supermarkets through out the year. The hybrid type of mango is preferred ( ottu mangai/kili mooku mangai ).
