How to make Mamidikaya Pappu

  1. Peel the mango and cut into small pieces.
  2. Pressure cook the mango and onion pieces for around 2-3 whistles or till soft.
  3. Similarly, pressure cook the toor dal with enough water till soft and mushy. Keep aside.
  4. Mix the dal and pressure cooked mango and onion, sambar powder, turmeric powder, salt and enough water.
  5. Simmer the above mixture for 10 minutes till it comes to a boil.
  6. Heat oil/ghee in a pan. Fry garlic till golden brown and add the red chillies and curry leaves. Keep aside.

My Tip:

-- You can add green chillies too while tempering. -- Sambar powder can be replaced with enough quantity of chilli powder according to taste.

Looks like a nice substitute for the everyday sambar that we eat here in North India
