A delicious combo of mango and spinach

Mystery Spot.


OK. I will tell you! Yesterday we visited a place called “Mystery Spot” in Santa Cruz, CA. It was awesome.  We were taken to a special cabin where the strange effects happened. There was a friendly guide who was making funny jokes showed us some tricks like balls rolling uphill and water flowing up the spout. We were like standing around in impossible angles defying gravity. I felt like I was riding a roller coaster and it was fun to lose control for some time, but not for long. Totally it was so fun.

OK. I am done! I won’t bore you much :)

Now let’s go the recipe today: I recently prepared a rice item for dinner with a combination of mango and spinach. Adding mango to rice (just like mango pulihora) gave it a little sour touch which was so good. 

Ingredients: (For 2-3 persons)
  • 2 cups Basmati Rice (I used brown Basmati Rice) + 4 cups Water
  • 1 cup grated Mango (Green Mango)
  • 1 cup chopped Spinach
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 4 small Green Chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp red Chili Powder
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, thinly sliced
  • Salt


  1. Wash and soak basmati rice for 15 minutes. While it is getting soaked, let’s do the other preparation.
  2. Heat oil in a pressure pan and add cumin seeds + green chilies + spinach + mango and sauté well.
  3. To this, add turmeric powder + garlic + chili powder and mix well.
  4. Finally add soaked rice and stir well.
  5. Then pour water and mix well. Add required amount of salt and mix well again.
  6. Put the cooker (pressure pan) lid on top with the whistle on and leave it for some time on medium flame until you hear 3 whistles.
  7. Then turn off the flame and allow all the pressure to go away. Fluff with a fork and serve with raita or just plain yogurt.
  8. Yummy!!
