  3. Heat 2tsp oil in a pan, add the masala paste and cook on medium flame until mango doesn’t smell raw anymore, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add rice to the masala and mix well. Season with salt.
  5. In another small pan, heat 1tbsp oil and add mustard seeds, both the dals and peanuts. Fry until seeds and peanuts are golden and then add the curry leaves. Add this to the rice, mix well and Enjoy!!
Recipe Notes

Masala paste can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 3 days. So when ready to make, just cook some rice or use leftover rice, mix the masala for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
