How to make Raw Mango Sambar

  1. Pressure cook toor dal with 2 cups of water for 4 whistles. Turn off the heat. Let the pressure release by itself.
  2. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil in a pan and crackle mustard and cumin seeds.
  3. Add urad dal and fry till it starts becoming golden brown in colour.
  4. Add Asafoetida and curry leaves.
  5. Now, add the onions,salt and turmeric powder. Saute until the onions turn translucent.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cook for a minute.
  7. When the tomatoes are almost done, add the mango pieces, and 1/2 cup of water. Cook till the mangoes are soft, but not too mushy.
  8. Add the sambar powder and tamarind pulp. Tamarind pulp is optional. It should be added only if the mangoes are not tangy enough. If the mangoes are enough sour, avoid adding tamarind pulp. Let it come to boil.
  9. Mash the cooked toor dal with back of your tumbler or with a potato masher and add this to the curry. Mix well and allow it to boil.
  10. Add jaggery. Check for seasoning and add accordingly. If you find the sambar is too thick, add some water.
  11. Sprinkle a lot of coriander leaves and then turn off the heat. Cover the lid and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  12. Enjoy this hot, spicy, tangy and sweet mango sambar with rice.

My Tip:

You can also add 1/4 cup of coconut milk if you wish. It adds flavor.
