Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the water and rice in a large saucepan. Put heat on high and allow to boil.
  2. While waiting for the water to heat up, dice the mangos, preferably skinning them first with a knife or a potato peeler. Cut along pit to get the large chunks off and continue to dice.
  3. Once rice gets boiling turn heat down to low, allowing it to simmer.
  4. Once rice is about done, or has just a little moisture left, add can of lentils (draining most of the fluid) and mango. Add milk and brown sugar, stirring into the mixture.
  5. Let simmer for another few minutes or until the mango has combined its flavor with the rice and lentils, and the water/milk has been taken up by the rice.
