  3. Next, add green chillies, curry leaves and fry for a few minutes.
  4. Add the finely grated raw mango as shown below.
  5. Fry for a few more minutes. At this point, I also added the fresh grated coconut.
  6. Now add the rice and gently mix all the ingredients. Add salt as well.

Notes: Add a bunch of finely chopped menthya soppu with grated mango and fry on low flame. This will give a great flavour to chitranna. Menthya and mavinakai together is heavenly!
