Mamidikaya Pappu !

















     Mamidikaya pappu  / Raw Mango Dal is a classic dish of Andhra that is served with steamed rice. 
This delicious tangy dal is made in a different way when compared to the mango sambhar which we make in Tamilnadu. This is our all time favourite and when I get raw mango I don't miss to make this.
