Simple and Scrumptious - Mamidikaya Pappu & Some awards

Raw sour mangoes make a excellent combination cooked with toor daal. This is a very simple and quick dish, yet when served with hot rice and ghee makes it a mouth watering Yummy meal. Although mangoes are a seasonal tropical fruit, these are made available in our local grocerers almost all year long and I like to have this warming meal for lunch on these chill days. This is a nice way to reminisce those summer tastes in fall and the approaching winter. My kids also love this one and it is an excellent source of protein and vitamins they need.



Make sure to really pick the green raw mangoes for this dish that are really sour, the ones used to make pickels are the best kind for this (The sweet ones do not give this that yummy tangy taste).


Ingredients:
1 big raw mango peeled and cut to cubes
2 cups toor daal
2 green chillies chopped
4-8 curry leaves
corriander for garnish
for tempering:
3 tbsp oil
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp urad daal
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp hing

Method:
cook together the toor daal and cut mango in a pressure cooker with 4 cups water until soft and keep aside.
Heat oil in a deep pan for tempering and add all the ingredients in order. When the seeds start to splutter, add the chopped green chillies and curry leaves.  Stir in the cooked daal with mangoes. Add more water to desired consistency and cook on simmer for 5-6 min., while stirring occasionally. Adjust the salt. Take off the flame and garnish with corriader. Serve hot with steaming rice and ghee.
