MAMIDIKAYA PAPPU (RAW MANGO WITH YELLOW LENTLES(SPLIT PIGEON PEAS)

Mamidikaya pappu – raw mango cooked with tour dal[split pigeon peas, yellow lentle, kandi pappu]. This delicious mamidikaya pappu is one of the favorites at my place normally we Indian s like to have simple and comfort food like dal – chawal (lentle curry s and rice) especially in Andhra, people like to eat there lentle s cooked with any vegetables like cucumber, green leafy vegetables and mango. Summer is the season for nice sour raw mangoes so in summer every alternate day my mom use to make this mamidi kaya pappu some times she use to mix green leafy vegetable like spinach, fenugreek leaves, amaranth leaves to this mamidikaya pappu and it's a all time favorite for me with hot steamed rice and potato or bitter gourd stir fry. And to day I am here with mamidi kaya pappu recipe.

Some people would like to make this mamidikaya pappu with split moong dal but I prefer mamidi kaya pesara pappu(moong dal) with amaranth leaves or fenugreek leaves not plain mango dal. I like plain mango dal with toor dal so that is your choice which dal you would like to use for this dal.
And one more thing is check the mango before you cook, the mango should be very sour not sweet and sour taste and also it should be fresh raw mango, not a ripe mango.

INGREDIENTS:-
1-- medium-raw mango
1cup--toor dal[split pigeon peas,yellow lentle,kandi pappu]
1 -- small-onion
6 -- green chillis
1/2teasp- chilli powder
1/4teasp- turmeric powder
salt to taste

3. If you are going to cook in a pan add 1cup water to dal and let it cook till half done[dal should split]
