Magic Masoor Dal

Here in this recipe I cooked whole masoor dal( red lentil ) with raw mango to give it a tangy taste.Believe me just give it a try once and you are going to make it again and again.It goes well even with plain rice.
Whole Masoor Dal 1 cup
Turmeric pw 1/2 tsp
Raw mango 1 small
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Red Chili pw 1 tsp
Ghee 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Onion 1 small
Garlic 2-3 pods

1. Wash and soak dal for 15 minutes.Peel and cut mango in small pieces.Now pressure cook dal with 3 cups of water,salt,mango pieces and turmeric powder till the dal is cooked.
2. In a pan heat ghee and add cumin seeds,asafoetida.When the seeds crackle add chopped garlic and onions.Fry till golden in colour.
3. Add dal with all the spices and check the consistency.If required add some water.

Note: If you don't have raw mango use dry mango powder.
I am sending this recipe to the event Sunday Snacks-Spill The Beans hosted by Priya of Akshayapaatram.
