“Cooking with Pedatha” is my go-to cookbook for Andhra style dishes. Even though I’m from Andhra and I cook my mom’s style (both my parents are from Vijayawada), I find that Pedatha’s recipes are slightly different in the spices added or the technique used. I’ve made a lot of recipes from the book and everything turned out delicious till now.
So for day 2 of our BM# 7, I made this raw mango rice which is tangy, spicy and delicious. Adding the spice paste of coconut, mustard seeds and green chilies makes the dish extra special. Make it for a simple dinner or as a dish for an elaborate meal, this mango rice is sure to wow the crowds.
