Raw Mango Dal

This space has been silent for a very long time, much longer than intended. I haven't got my blogging mojo back as yet but I will still manage a post once in a while. Also,it's been so long since I wrote something, I have a major writer's block & I seem to have nothing much to say :)

Summer is here & so are the Mangoes. And along with it comes loads of mango based dishes. This Raw Mango Dal is easily one of my favorite summer recipes.

My Neighbour makes a killer Mango Dal & this recipe is hers. I have of course tweaked it a little to suit outr taste buds. The only change I have made is the addition of garlic which in my opinion takes this dish to a different level
