Hing/ Asafoetida - 2 - 3 pinch
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves - for garnishing
Wash and cook rice separately. Cool.
Meanwhile peel the skin of the mango( have used medium sour tasting mango ) and grate them.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, channa dhal, cashewnuts and raw peanuts and saute. Within seconds add hing, red chillies and curry leaves. Wait till peanuts turn in color. See to that it is fried in high heat or it will burn soon and dish will be bitter.
