During the mango season we prepare lot more dishes with mango and one such is Mango Sambhar the taste of which will linger till the next season.It is very simple to make just like the regular sambhar deleting some ingredients

Toor dal-1/2 cup
Raw mango-2
Small onions-6
Sambhar powder-2tbsp
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Salt-to taste

For seasoning
Methi seeds-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves-a few
Asafoetida-1/2 tsp
Coriader leaves -to garnish
Oil-as required

Cook dal in pressure cooker with a pinch of turmeric powder
Cut the mangoes to moderately big pieces with the outer layer of the seed intact,remove the seed
This prevents the mango to be overcooked
Heat oil in a pan and season with the ingredients
Add onions and cut mangoes and saute
To this add little water for the mangoes to get cooked
Add sambhar powder,turmeric powder and salt and allow to boil
When the mango is half done add the cooked toor dal and required water if needed and allow to boil
Remove when the mangoes are just done,as it would get over cooked quickly
Garnish with coriander leaves
Serve hot with rice and ghee
Do not add tamarind extract or tomatoes as done for regular sambhar
