Green Mango Dal – Mamidikaya Pappu

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr


  • 1 peeled and grated green mango
  • 2 finely chopped shallots
  • 1 cup toor dal split pigeon peas
  • 5 finely chopped green chiles
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • a pinch of asoefetida
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown mustard seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 5 finely chopped cloves garlic
  • 2 red chiles
  • 1 sprig curry leaves


  • In a large saucepan, combine mango, shallots, toor dal, chiles and turmeric with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes - 1 hour, until dal is tender. Using an immersion blender, partially puree dal.
  • In a skillet, heat ghee. Add asoefetida. Once it stops spluttering, add mustard seed and cumin seed. Fry for 1 minute. Add garlic, red chiles and curry leaves until garlic is golden. Add to dal and simmer for 5 more minutes. Add more water, as needed, for desired consistency.
