    Wow, great use of Mango in everyday cooking recipes! I like to add little bit of Jaggery to it for sweet and sour flavor…

    1. Thanks.That’s a great idea to add Jaggery. Personally I am not a fan of sweet dal lol.

        Yeah,I know many people who prefer Dal without any sweetener added , but I thought Raw mango and Jaggery could complement each other, wouldn’t it be too tangy in taste without any sweetner???

      2. If it is too tangy we add little more cooked dal or less raw mango.That’s why ratio to dal and mango are important for this recipe.
