Raw Mango Dal

I have a lot of bachelor friends/cousins and some students living in groups of 3 or 4 who need quick and easy to make nutritious meals either for themselves or for their entire group. 

When I come across them or when they message me for ideas, I hear from them how they crave for certain dish which they used to eat etc. For such people and others, I shall try to showcase some easy to make dishes this week as part of BM #49. 

Come spring/summer and there would be an abundance of mangoes (in India). Raw mangoes with their tartness captivate our hearts in numerous ways, right? Eat raw with some sprinkles of masala or make different pickles or make dal out of it; It tastes just as divine in either of the dishes. 

Luckily for us, raw mangoes are available all through the year and it sure is a treat to eat mango dal with steaming hot rice and ghee. Don't you all agree? Here is how we prepare mango dal at home.

Ingredients - 

Raw Mango peeled and chopped 1 1/2 to 2 cups
Toor Dal (Kandi Pappu) 1 cup
Salt as per taste (approximately 1 1/2 tsp)
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Roasted Methi Powder just a pinch (Optional)
Sugar 1/2 tsp (Optional)
Green Chillies 6-7 (or as per taste) [My mom uses red chilli powder]
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Urad dal 1 tsp, Jeera (Cumin seeds) 1 tsp, Hing couple pinches, 1 Dried Red Chilli, Curry Leaves a few)

Raw Mango Dal
A typical meal at home - Easy to make 

Method Of Preparation - 

Boil Toor dal in a pressure cooker.

After the cooker cools down, heat a sauce pan and add oil and the seasoning ingredients. 

Once the mustard seeds splutter and urad dal is brown add the chopped mango and chopped green chillies. Cover and let the mango pieces cook.

Add boiled toor dal, roasted methi powder, sugar, turmeric and salt.

Let the dal simmer for couple of minutes and serve over hot rice and ghee.

  10. Kammani vanta. This is one of the favorite dals in most Andhra homes, I bet. Somehow the mango variety I get here is never that sour that I don't have to use tamarind.

  11. SUch a comforting dal! Would love to have this tangy dal on cold nights :)
