Mango Dal is an other yummy dal variety rich in Mango flavor. One of my Andhra friend used to do this delicious recipe and from her I learnt this recipe. The addition of very little fenugreek seeds add extra taste to this scrumptious dish. Dal varieties not only goes well with chapati or other Indian breads but also goes well with white rice.
