Raw Mango Rice

Raw Mango Rice

I work full time and every day there is a struggle to finalise on breakfast and lunch menu. At times when this uncertainty is to its fullest, I prepare toasted bread and eat bread and butter for breakfast.

Long ago when I moved to this city, I had heard of different rice recipes which people quickly whip together to have a hearty breakfast which can also double up as your one dish meal.

so I embark upon this journey of making my first ever
