Raw Mango - Corn Shavige

This is the season of Raw Mango and it is used in day today's cooking. Raw Mango - Corn Shavige is prepared using Corn and Raw Mango. We can prepare many dishes using Shavige also, like Shavige Uppittu (Upma), Shavige, chitranna , Puliyogre and Sweet baat, curd baat, Shavige bisibele baat, etc.
Here I have tried Shavige with raw mango. I used raw mango instead of tamarind pulp or lemon. It is some thing like Mango Rice but done with Shavige. (Vermecelli). Shavige is something like noodles, it is thin and mixes well and taste good, This is a simple dish and added corn to the Shavige. I added fresh grated coconut, since I come from Udupi ( South Karnataka) normally use fresh coconut, that you must have noticed in my preparation. Coconut contain lot more good qualities. For spice green chilly is used, curry leaves and coriander leaves to top up the aroma and health.
Lets see some benefits of having Corn.
Sweet Corn is gluten free and it is a dietary fiber. It is full of vitamins and antioxidants and some portion of minerals. It helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Corn helps to prevent cancers, aging and inflammation in humans. It contains good levels of B- complex group of vitamins. It also contain healthy amounts of some important minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, iron and manganese.
