Habanero Mango Rice

March 31, 2019


    As most of you have figured out, I am a fan of the sweet and hot combination.  I find it especially true in this side dish.   For those of you who find the habaneros to be too much spice,  you can substitute a milder pepper or eliminate peppers from the recipe. It's a great dish.



1 cup of basmati rice

2 cups of mango juice

½ cup of water

1 ounce of fresh shredded ginger

1 habanero pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1 tablespoon of butter

1/2 teaspoon of salt



Rinse the rice and set it aside. Melt the butter in a pan.  Reduce the heat and add the pepper, salt and ginger.  Sweat the pepper and ginger for 1 to 2 minutes, make sure they do not brown.  Add the mango juice and water.  Bring to a boil.  Add the rice. When the water returns to a boil, stir.  Reduce to a simmer and cover.  Allow to simmer on low for 18-20 minutes or until rice is


This produces between 4 and 6 servings as a side dish.
