Masala Mango Dal

Cooked this in record time today :) Had to go and pick up my darling daughter from school. Arms are hurting like hell after the rigorous workout given by my teacher yesterday!!!

Anyway here is the recipe:

You need:
Dal - 2 cups
Raw Mangoes - (Should be sour) chopped 2 tbsp

Onion - 1 med finely chopped
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Jeera - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 10
Red chillis - 2
Green chillis - 5 (slit into 2)
Oil - 1 tsp

Pressure cook the Dal and Mangoes separately.
Drain the mangoes, Mash them and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add the mustard when it starts spluttering add all the other ingredients for seasoning.
Add onion in the end. Fry till onion becomes pink in color
Add the cooked dal and mashed mangoes. If the dal is too thick add a little water.
Add the red chilli powder and garam masala powder
Stir well
Add salt and cook for 10 mins on mid flame.
Serve hot with rice or roti.

Note: You can add garlic too in the seasoning. I have not added it here.
