Mango Dal | Manga Vendaiyam Paruppu | Raw Mango Curry Recipe

Mango Dal have you ever tried it? Its absolutely delicious and it was my first time that I ever tasted it and I cannot stop raving about it because Amma made this yumm dal for me when I visited her a while ago. I really wonder how she does magic to food.. I know all our mothers are great cooks, they perfect recipes and their recipes taste the same every time they make them right? If you are food blogger I have this one question to you, do you only post recipes that are a favourite at home? or your trails too? just curious you know :P

Cooks Wisdom

- Serve hot with white rice and may be top with some ghee for additional flavor
