Mango Dal Recipe / Mango Paruppu/ Mamidikaya Pappu

In Tamilnadu Thur Dal is used as Uppu Paruppu without any addition. It is a regular and must have for all festivals. However in Andhra, they add mango or tomato with the dal for flavor. Since it is mango season I tried the Andhra Mango Pappu. It was liked very much by my family.
