Mango Dal / Mambala Paruppu Kulambu – Mango Recipes

Recently when I have been to Rajdhani for their Aamlicious, I got to taste this Mango Dal which was fantastic and that I liked to the core.

Mango Dal was little sweet, tangy and spicy, which went goes out well with pulav’s, rice, roti or Indian flat bread. I have prepared it using both ripe and raw mangoes for the perfect taste, I had there. We all like it and accompanied it with pulav, potato fry and appalam / pappad. Let me share the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta friday #172 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
