Mango Pulihora or Mango Rice is an South-Indian recipe and this rice variety generally prepared during festivals or any occasion and the preparation process is quite similar to lemon rice but her we are using raw mango instead of lemon. It is seasonal food because raw mango is obtained only at summer so everyone try this recipe because raw mangoes is available in only one season.
