Raw Mango Dal...completely Andhra Style(mamidikaya pappu)

Print Friendly and PDF
Raw mango dal is one of the few delicious and easy dals which are prepared in Andhra.This dal has a very typical flavor because of the natural sourness of the mango and is complemented well when mixed with hot white rice with lots of ghee and some fry.Here goes the recipe of this simple and yummy dal.


1 sour Raw mango,peeled and chopped into small thin slices
1/2 cup Toor dal
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp red chili powder
salt to taste

for Tadka:
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp jeera
a pinch of hing
5-6 garlic pods,slightly crushed
2 red chillies
8-10 curry leaves
1 tsp ghee/oil

  • Pressure cook toor dal mixed with turmeric and mango slices in different containers until the dal and mango pieces are soft.
  • Add the cooked mango pieces to the dal and mash it properly.Add some water to the mixture and let the mixture come to a boil on stove.
  • Add red chilli powder and salt to it and mix well.
  • Mean while in a small tadka pan heat ghee/oil and crackle mustard and jeera and then add smashed garlic pods,hing and fry until they are light brown in color.Add broken red chillies and curry leaves and give a stir.
  • Add the tadka to the dal and mix well and cover the pan wid the lid.
Serve it hot with hot rice and a dollop of ghee(must) wid some fried papad/fritters.

  • Always cook dal and mango pieces separately,otherwise dal will not be cooked properly.
  • Add lots of garlic to the tadka,it will give very nice flavor to the dal.
  • If you dont have fresh mangoes,you can even add dried mango pieces to prepare this dal.
  • For a Vegan version use only oil instead of ghee in tempering.
