A hot afternoon and tangy dal for lunch go hand in hand.Summer time ,mangoes in season and often I get to taste this delicious dal.
Arhar or toor Dal
Raw Mango diced into small pieces.
Red chilli powder or green chillies(whichever preferred)
Dal with turmeric,garlic,onions,chilli is set to boil.The mangoes can be boiled along with the dal or added along with seasoning to the dal.However I prefer the latter.
A little oil is heated in a pan.Seasoning is added along with the mangoes .The mangoes are reduced to a pulp with a spoon in the oil.And when the magoes becomes pulpy dal is added to the seasoning and boiled withthe seasoning for 3-5 minutes.Mango Dal is ready for the afternoon.
