Raw Mango Dal

The much-awaited mango season is started!


And I got some raw mangoes from my friends’ mango tree. There were so many recipes in my mind and all I was waiting to get some the raw mangoes.

Now the confusion was which recipe to make first!. Discussing with my husband ( on whom I try all my new recipes ๐Ÿ™‚ ) listed a few and decides to make raw mango dal first.

Raw Mango Dal – A Simple and Tasty Recipe

There are many varieties of mangoes and sourness of the raw mango varies accordingly.

If the mangoes are too sour then reduce the quantity you use for cooking, else the dal will become too sour.

There is one more method to reduce the sourness. Add about a tsp of salt to the cut mangoes and keep aside for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes it leaves off the water. Squeeze out this water and retain the cut mangoes.

Whatever the case please check the sourness of the mango.
