Mango Dal

You will need:

  • 1 cup moong dal/ bengal gram dal/ toor dal (can add combination of 2 dals also)
  • 1 onion (chopped)or 10 pearl onions
  • 1 green mango (chopped into bite size pieces)
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • salt for taste

For tempering:
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 5 red chillies
  • few curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp oil/ ghee
Step 1:

Pressure cook the dal along with chopped mango, cumin seeds, garlic, chilli powder, salt and onion till its over cooked.

I used new brand of dal this time and it needs more time to cook. Did that mistake so you can find some whole cooked dals in the pics..

I added frozen mango's. About a cup of chopped mangoes is fine.

Step 2:

When its cooled open the cooker and check for the consistency. If you want to add more water add water or coconut milk. Check for salt.

Step 3:

Now for tempering, take a small pan add oil to it. When its hot add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add red chillies, curry leaves and saute it for just few seconds till you get very good aroma. Then add this tempering to the cooked mango dal and serve it with hot rice, appalam/pappadam and pickle. Enjoy!!!!!!
