Mango dhal/mamidikaaya pappu/Manga paruppu.

I wanted to try mango dhal from a long time as I missed eating it, but could not find them in stores until recently. This time made sure I got couple of them to try many dishes with fresh mangoes and one such is this dhal.

Toor dhal or mixed dhal - 1 cup
Raw mango - 3/4 - 1 cup chopped
Onion - 1 small chopped
Tomato - 1 small chopped
Green chillies - 3 or 4
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 4 pods crushed well
Mustard seeds - few
Urad dhal - few
Curry leaves - few
Jeera/cumin seeds - few

Red chillies - 2 or 3 broken
Asafoetida/ hing - 2 pinch
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 -2 tbsp


I have scrapped/peeled the skin of mango with a knife and then chopped into pieces( Just used half a raw mango which came upto to 1 cup).

Wash dhal and add 2 1/2 cups of water...along with chilli powder, turmeric powder, chopped tomato, green chiilies , chopped mango and half of the chopped onion....pressure cook in a pan/cooker for 3 to 4 whistles. Remove and mash the dhal with a masher till dhal and mango are soft and mashed well.

Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds, urad dhal,jeera, asafoetida, broken red chillies and curry leaves....when they start to splutter up add crushed garlic and remaining chopped onions(optional can skip adding) fry till onions and light brown...next add cooked dhal, salt and cook till it comes up to a boil...remove and enjoy with rice and pickle.
