Amiya Ki Dal

Amiya Ki Dal

Mangoes are coming back in season and I’m all too excited for them. Not just that I love them eating them, I also use them for many of my recipes to give a unique and delicious taste. Just today I used the raw mangoes or amiya as we call them to make my day to day dal extra tasty. The tangy flavor of the dal went very well with the rice and chapati and everybody enjoyed the meal. It is a very simple addition and let’s you go out of ordinary in regular meals. I’ll share more mango recipes as we go through the season, however for now use this Amiya Ki Dal Recipe and enjoy it any day you like.
