About Pappu varieties with tangy vegetables/fruits

In Telangana and AP regions, apart from green leaves, dal is prepared with various sour vegetables like tamata (tomato), dosakaya(lemon cucumber), maamidikaya(Mango), Chintachiguru(tender tamarind leaves), cihntakaya (raw tamarind). The later three are seasonal. Also, the sourness/tangy taste gets very well compensated with hot green chillies. So, these kind of dals are both sour/tangy as well as hot. Adding a nice helping of ghee or white butter minimizes those tastes and also enhances the taste of the entire dish. Jowar rotis are staple in Telangana region.

Ingredients to make Pappu varieties with tangy vegetables/fruits

  • 2 cups of toor dal
  • 1 cup of diced mangoes or tomatoes or dosakaya
  • Or 5-6 pods of raw tamarind (veins and seeds removed)
  • Or 1/2 cup of tender tamarind leaves cleaned and washed
  • A pinch of turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for tempering
  • 1 teaspoon each of mustard seeds and cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon of methi seeds
  • 1 cup of water

How to make Pappu varieties with tangy vegetables/fruits

  1. Clean and wash the dal. Soak in water for 1 1/2 hour. Then add in a pressure cooker.
  2. Add the main vegetable/leaves as mentioned in the ingredients to it.
  3. Pressure cook along with turmeric.
  4. Cook for one whistle.
  5. Let the pressure settle down.
  6. Add salt and mash the dal. But, not completely. This step can be skipped if one doesn't like mashed dal.
  7. Check for the consistency. Dal shouldn't be too thick or too runny. If it is thick, add water and let simmer for few more minutes.
  8. Turn off the flame and prepare the tempering.
  9. Heat oil in a tadka pan. Add mustard seeds, let splutter. Add cumin seeds, methi seeds and fry for 5 seconds. Add green chillies and fry for 10 seconds. Add curry leaves followed by whole dried chillies and fry for 10 seconds.
  10. Add this tadka to the dal just before serving.
My Tip: Based on one's taste sliced onions, garlic, hing can also be added. Also, green chillies can be replaced or supplemented with red chilli powder or green chilli paste. The latter two can be added during the simmering process.
