Mango Dhal ‪‬

Mamidikaya Pappu or Mango Dal


  • 1 cup toor dhal – soak for and hour
  • 1/2 cup moong dhal – soak for an hour
  • 2 large raw mangoes – peel and cube
  • 5-6 green chillies – chopped
  • 1″ ginger – minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder


for tempering

  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon jeera
  • 10 cloves garlic – chopped
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asafoetida
  • dried red chillies

Pressure cook all ingredients (except for those mentioned under tempering) for 2 whistles in 6 cups of water. Allow pressure to drop naturally. Taste the dal, if it’s not sour enough add in diced mango at this stage too. When cool, slightly mash the dal / mango.

Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds and add garlic. When garlic begins to colour add curry leaves, chillies and asafoetida. Mix into dal, cook on low for 2-3 minutes for flavours to blend in, adjust the liquid consistency and flavours but checking the salt to taste 😉
