Magai/ Mango Dal

Magai Pappu / Mango Dal

Magai pappu is nothing but dried mango dal. When we make Magai pickle we keep some dried mango slices to make mango dal when ever we want. We can store them in an air tight container for at least 6 months. Here in USA, we can buy dried amchur slices in Indian store and make this dal.


Dried Mango Slices – 10/15 number
Toor Dal – 1 cup
Water – 2 cups
Salt – to taste
Red Chilli Powder – to taste
Urad dal – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Red chilli whole – 1
Crushed garlic – 1 pod
Oil – 1 tbsp
Curry leaves


Wash both the mango slices and toor dal separately and drain the water.
Add 2 cups of water to the cooking vessel add dal, mango slices and cook for 3-4 whistles or till completely done and set aside.

 Now take a pan, add very little oil fry the crushed garlic for few sec., and then add cooked dal, add little water and cook for 5 min. then adjust salt and red chilli powder according to your taste and cook few more minutes. You can add water to get consistency you want.

Take a tampering pan, add oil when it is hot enough add urad dal, mustard seeds, red chilli whole and fry for few seconds or till they turn brown and then add curry leaves and hing and switch off the stove.

Add this tampering to Dal and serve hot with white rice and ghee.
