Aam Daal

Aam Daal (Lentil cooked with raw mango) a perfect dish to relish in summer time....Raw mango is cooked along with daal, which gives the dish a unique tangy taste. A simple dish with a few ingredients........
While browsing I came found varieties of aam daal, but found this recipe (as posted by Sandeepa) very similar to the one I make at home...

  • ½ cup (100 gms) masoor daal (split orange / red lentils)
  • 1 raw mango (kancha aam), peeled & finely chopped
  • 1-2 cups water (as required)
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar (as required)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp mustard oil


  1. Wash and soak the masoor daal for 10-15 mins. Pressure cook daal with turmeric, a pinch of salt and enough water till 2-3 whistles. Remove from fire, let the cooker come down to normal temp. Pour daal in a bowl and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a kadhai. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter.
  3. Add the chopped mango slices, saute a little. Add the boiled masoor daal and mix well. Cover and cook for some time till the mangoes become tender.
  4. Bring to a boil and adjust sugar and salt. (Add a little water, if required)
  5. Remove from fire, transfer to a serving bowl and serve with steamed rice.

This is going to MBP: Mango Masti event hosted by Neha and started by Coffee of Spice Cafe ....

Also sending Aam Pora Shorbot to the event. I liked the way Rinku of Cooking in Westchester prepared her Smoky Summer Cooler.
