Raw mango rice- microwave cooking

I have learnt to make raw mango rice after I came to Bangalore. I think this is a Karnataka special dish. Thanks to Lakshmi, my friend and colleague, for this recipe. I have posted this recipe earlier, but I am reposting this with a pic and microwave cooking directions.
Earlier recipe is here-
Ambrosia: Raw mango rice

My recipe-
A handful of roasted peanuts
You can roast peanuts in the microwave.
Oil or ghee for cooking
Mustard seeds for tempering
curry leaves - a few
1 Onion-chopped
1 tomato - chopped - optional
One small raw mango (can be peeled), grated
Salt to taste
1 tsp Turmeric
1 cup white rice- cooked

Soak the rice for about 20 mins to half an hour in 2 cups water, cook in the microwave for 12-15 mins on 75% power, let stand for 10 mins.

Keep the cooked white rice ready.
In a microsafe dish, add the tempering,curry leaves and onions. Micro for a couple of mins.
Add tomato, micro for another couple of mins, mash with the back of your spatula.
Add roasted peanuts, turmeric, salt and cook for another minute. Now add the raw mango, mix and cook for another minute.
Don't overcook the raw mango or the flavor will disappear.
Mix plain rice very well, and cook in the micro for another couple of mins.
Let stand for about 5-10 mins for the flavors to mix and serve hot.
