Bonus Dish for Week 3:

Theme: A-Z  Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: M for Mamikidikaya Pappu (Raw Mango Dal)

This pappu for my first pick for the Letter ‘M’, but it fell off the regular A-Z Vegetarian dishes from A.P. truck because of various reasons. One reason was that I made ‘Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya pachadi’ for N and I didn’t want the same ingredient (mango) to be used in the dishes that I was posting on consecutive days. So for M I posted Menthikura pappu.

Mamidikaya pappu screams summer for me, even though we get good quality raw mangoes in the Indian store almost all year long. It is one of the dishes that is made on special occasions, festivals, when guests are visiting etc. If your mango is not sour enough, then feel free to add some tamarind paste.

This recipe is from “Cooking with Pedatha” cookbook. I loved the addition of jaggery at the very end, gives a ymmy twist to regular dal.

  1. First time here, I saw your post on one of the FB pages and followed. Very nice blog. Mamidikaya pappu is a family favorite, hint of jiggery sounds delicious.

  2. My girls love this but they do not want the raw mango cooked. So this has to be made on a sunday. Will try this version.
