How to Make Plain Mango Dal

  • Cut mango into small pieces and place them along with dal, garlic, green chillies along with 3 cups of water in a pressure cooker. Pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  • When pressure drops, mash the mixture well with the back of a spoon or a potato masher.
  • The mixture should have a creamy consistency with a little bit of water left in it.
  • Add a couple of tbsps of cooking oil to a frying pan and prepare seasoning with mustard, chana, curry leaf and jeera, and add it to the dal.
  • Allow dal to boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Then add salt and little chilli powder to get colour, and stir.
