Mango Dal..

A few years ago, I tasted this Mango Dal for the first time at a friends place and ever since fell in love with it. I love the use of raw mangoes in curries and dals, but a whole dal based with raw mango, is just pure comfort food for me. I could eat this dal everyday without any complaints and works great for us as my family loves it too..

This is how I make my Mango dal, as adapted from my friends recipe.


Toor dal, cooked and mashed - 1 cup
Raw Mango, cut into chunks - 2 1/2 cups
Chopped onions - 1 cup
Chopped ginger - 1 tsp
Green chillies, slit lengthwise - 4
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Garlic, chopped - 3 cloves
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 5
Salt - to taste


- Cook the mango with the onions, ginger, chillies, turmeric, and salt in about 2 cups of water. Cover and cook till the mango pieces are tender but not mushy.
- Add the cooked dal to the above and add water if needed to make the consistency thick or thin and cook.
- In a separate small pan, heat ghee/oil and add garlic, saute till it turns golden in colour, add the cumin seeds and curry leaves. Pour this seasoning over the dal mixture and keep covered till serving.
- Serve hot with rice.
