Spinach & Mango Dal

Few days back, attended wedding function in my husband's colleague house and got a wonderful chance to learn lots of delicious authentic Telangana style cooking. His family members were so generous to share few recipes and also made me so comfortable to click pictures and videos. Among all the recipes, this delicious dal was on my cards to prepare first. While pressure cooking both the dals along with mango and other ingredients, my home filled with lovely aroma of mango and fresh coriander leaves. The addition of ginger garlic paste at the last stage of cooking enhanced the complete taste of the curry. This yummy dish goes delicious with hot rice and ghee.
