Mango Dal with Yellow Split Peas

Mator dal / Yellow Split Peas - 3/4 cup
Water - 2 cups
Turmeric - a pinch
Peanut Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Green Chili - 2 + 2
Yellow Onion - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
Green raw mango - 2 very small ones or 1 big one, peeled and chopped
Ginger - 1/2 inch, julienned

Cook the dal with water, salt, turmeric in a pressure cooker or rice cooker till done. The dal should be very soft. Mash it well and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. Once they pop, add the green chilies, ginger and chopped onion. Cook till the onion gets soft and slightly caramelised.

Add the chopped mango pieces and a little turmeric. Cook till the mango pieces become soft.

Add the mashed dal. Add a cup of water, if required. Check the seasoning. Bring it to a boil and cook till desired consistency is reached. Break a few green chilies on top and serve hot with steamed brown rice.
