Maagaya Mukkala (Orugula) Pappu (A dal with pickled mango pieces)


Yellow lentils (Toor dal / Kandipappu) : 1 cup
Pickled mango pieces (Maagaya Mukkalu) : 2 handfuls
Red Chilli powder : 2 tsps or as required
Garlic Cloves : 3 to 4 (sliced lengthwise)
Mustard seeds : 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds : 1/4 tsp
Urad dal : 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice : 1 tsp or as required
Salt : as required
Oil : 2 tsp

  • Take toor dal in a pressure cooker, wash and soak for a minimum of 15 minutes.
  • Pour enough water (almost more than double the quantity) in the dal and pressure cook on medium high flame until three whistles.
  • Meanwhile in a microwavable bowl,  take the pickled mango pieces and pour 1/2 cup of water.  
  • Microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the mango pieces are well cooked.
  • When the steam is released from the pressure cooker open the lid and mash the dal with a potato masher or pappu gutti.
  • Similarly mash the boiled mango pieces.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan, do takda/popu by adding garlic slices, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal. 
  • When mustard seeds splutter, pour the tadka into the pressure cooker with dal and add salt and red chilli powder.
  • Boil the dal again for 5 minutes and adjust salt.  If the dal is not sour enough, add some lemon juice.
  • Serve hot with rice.
