Mamidikaya Pappu/Mango Dal

Its mango time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yesterday went to the Indian store and there I see tempting looking fresh green mangoes. I am not extremely fond of the fruit, but the raw mango makes my mouth water. They are a little pricey but i had to buy them. After all they are only available 2-3 months a year. Three things that are made of raw mango that I like a lot are 1.Mango pickle 2.Mango Dal 3.Mango Rice I made Mango Dal yesteday. Nice, thick, tangy, mouthwatering "mamidi kaya pappu" Ingredients Big Raw Mango -1 Toor Dal - 1 cup Small Red Onion - 1/2 Garlic - 3 Big pods cut into pieces Cummin seeds - 1 tea spoon Turmeric powder - a pinch Red chilli powder - As desired Salt - As desired. Oil- 3 drops. Mix everything except salt and pressure cook. Open the cooker, mash the mixture nicely and add salt. Now's the time for popu or tadka or seasoning Heat 1 Table spoon of oil in a pan. Add chana da, urad dal, rai, jeera, whole red chillies, cut garlic and curry leaves in the order. Mix it with the dal. Divinely tasting mamidikaya pappu is ready to eat. Thats what we had for dinner yesterday and lunch today.
