Mango Dal Dosa & Mango Chutney

During childhood days, Tasting Raw mango with Red chilli powder and salt is the only fun during summer holidays. Markets used to be completely filled with varieties of mangoes and gives lovely fresh aroma while stepping in. I never knew that people in AP celebrate Mango festival every year. I was recently invited for a special Mango pooja, where mangoes are kept for pooja along with few recipes like mango rice, mango raas etc... And only after pooja ,distribution of mangoes and Thambulam to all guests, people eat mangoes but nowadays this custom was followed by only few families.  I felt very happy to attend and know about this interesting pooja and ofcourse, enjoyed my mango meal alot :)

Coming to my Today's post....
I love adding twist in my regular food and being its mango season, thought of trying out healthy dal dosa with a twist of adding grated raw mangoes to give a mild tangy taste. Mango chutney is also an easy to prepare recipe which can be served with dosa and personally I loved my leftover chutneys with curd rice.
