Mango Fried Rice


Mango season always brings in festivity and cheer along with it. Chefs come up with new lip smacking mango recipes while there are umpteen mango oriented snacks dished out by proficient bakers. How can one resist the magnificent mouth watering mango dessert spreads at restaurants? On the home front it is chutney and pickles galore where mothers and grand mothers are busy preserving them to last till the next season. Just when I was yearning to post a mango recipe for this season, my sister mentioned about the Thai Mango Fried Rice which she happened to relish recently. I used mango sauce (my own concoction) for my experiment, and my Mango Fried Rice turned out delicious!

Green chilly - 1
Fresh ginger (peeled) - a fat 1'' piece
Garlic - 6 cloves

Finely minced beans and carrot - 1 cup
