Tangy rice with lemon,raw mangoes & cilantro...

I was trying to cook up something to go with the Thai-red-curry-based prawns that i made.. Plain rice or something tangy?? I settled for a little tangy experiment & screened the fridge for add-ons. Found some grated raw mangoes & of course, in they went! I just loved the way this turned out & couldn't stop eating it!:D You need:
1.5 cups rice - washed well till the water runs clear
3 cups water
3-4 tbsp oil
1 small onion - diced
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 a lemon
salt to taste
a handful of cilantro/corriander leaves - finely chopped
2 tbsp raw mango - shredded (optional - added them on a whim)
1 tsp chilly flakes - optional
How to:
Heat oil in the vessel you cook rice in. Now add the onions & stir till they are transparent. Add the raw mango,lemon zest, salt & chilly flakes. Add the rice & stir for about a minute. Add water, check for seasoning & let the rice cook. Once done, add the chopped cilantro & mix well. Goes well with anything spicy & is as good on its own too! :)
