Green Mango Masoor Dal
Green Mango Masoor dal is simple yet delicious preparation of red lentils with raw mango which adds tangy flavor to the dish. Raw mango is highly rich in vitamin c besides pectic, acids like citric and succinic. Raw mangoes have more nutritional value than ripen one.
This wonderful dish is a great accompaniment to plain rice and is a quick dinner or lunch. The tanginess of green mango combined with sweetness of coconut makes it a irresistable dish.
One of my keralite colleague taught me this dish and told to add drumsticks which were not available so i replaced it with potato. Drumsticks would definately taste yum and is a healthy option. I will add it next time for sure.
1 cup masoor dal (presoaked for half an hour)
1/2 big raw mango chopped in small chunks
1 small potato chopped or few drumsticks
Haldi big pinch
Red chilly powder
Give 3 Whistle the above ingredients with 3 cup water on medium flame. Let it cool.
Grind 1/4 fresh coconut with little water and mix it in dal.
In a pan heat oil. When hot add rai 1 tsp, red chilly sabut, kari patta. Let it splutter. Switch off. Add the tadka over dal.
Serve hot with plain rice.
