We can also prepare wide varieties by using mangoes like mamidikaya bendakaya (mango bendi) curry, mamidikaya vankaya(mango brinjal) curry, mamidikaya pulusu etc. Different chutney’s are also there like mamidukaya pachadi (mango chutney), mamidikaya kobbari pachadi(mango coconut chutney) etc. sweets like mango halwa, mango burfi etc.

To prepare this pappu mamidakulu(mango dal) recipe we use raw Mango, toor daal, onions and green chillies. We enhance the taste by adding tadka at the end. I prepare this recipe in pressure cooker because daal takes little extra time to cook. If you don’t  have pressure cooker then you can use regular curry pan.
