Raw Mango Dal / Mavidikaya Pappu, a South Indian Andhra style lentil stew recipe, which is easily liked (would be right to say, loved) by all. This is the MUST & SHOULD side dish in any menu, during the celebrations in summer season.

Whole of the recipe, tips & content I wrote here is exactly what I learnt from Amma (my Mom). These days, we do get raw green mangoes throughout the year, so no worries about availability too! Do try it and see! 🙂

Though, this Raw Mango Dal / Mavidikaya Pappu, is very easy to prepare at the same time its entire taste might be ruined if the right mango isn’t selected & cut properly.

  • Select only hard, green coloured mangoes.
  • Before adding the pieces into the dal, do this for sure. Give a taste test, by biting a piece to see if its sour enough and not sweet. The sourer the best.
  • Don’t chop, cut the mango into tiny pieces, rather slice them as shown above.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips mentioned at the end.

Tips:

  • Select only hard, green coloured mangoes.
  • Taste Test: Before adding the pieces into the dal, do this for sure. Give a taste test, by biting a piece to see if its sour enough and not sweet. The sourer the best.
  • Don’t chop, cut the mango into tiny pieces, rather slice them as shown above.
  • I preferred this dal/stew to be NoOnion-NoGarlic recipe, but you can add chopped onions (2 small size) while cooking the dal and add garlic in the tempering pan.
  • I have a small pressure cooker suitable for making the stew/dal.
  • If not you can transfer the dal/lentils, veggies into a suitable vessel and continue with the recipe on stove top.
  • Adjust the salt and spice as per your taste.
  • For the tempering, try to add the spices whichever you have, but try not to skip the tempering.
  • The storage time of this at room temperature is 2-3 days but when refrigerated stays good up to a week.

Result:

  • The taste of this, mamidikaya pappu / raw mango dal is tangy, sour, mild in spice and the texture is very soft with bits of mango in between.
  • It is suitable as a side with any plain rice, quinoa, any bread .
  • We had this, mamidikaya pappu / raw mango dal as a side with steamed white rice, homemade ghee along side of fresh green chillies as condiment.
