This dhal is a rare combination of Channa dhal and ripe mango. I used Neelam variety mango. Normally we frequently use tur and moong dhals , so this time, I chose channa dhal, which is in no way less as far as protein content is concerned.
Don't think, just because we add mangoes, dhal will be too sweet. Not at all. Just that  the flavor of mango had fully seeped in  there, the softly cooked mango pieces just melt  in your mouth.
This is certainly a summer delight, pardon me for my slightly delayed post.

Channadhal - 3/4 cup, soaked in hot water or 1/2 hour
Ripe mango - 1, chopped
Pearl onions - 10-12
Slit green chillies - 2
Sambar powder - 1/2 tsp
Bay leaf - 1
Salt to taste
Coriander for garnishing

For seasoning
Oil and ghee mixed - 2 tsps
Jeera - 1 tsp
Red chillies, broken - 2

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Lunch / dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 15mts

Serves 3-4

Picture below shows channa dhal with tomato pieces, turmeric powder  and sambar powder ready to be pressure cooked, the other is the cooked one.

Mango pieces, small onions, green chillies and bay leaf set to boil. The other picture shows the nicely boiled mixture

Cooked channa dhal mashed up nicely, then added to the mango mixture, salt added

All mixed well, seasonings mentioned above done, coriander leaves garnished.

Serve this amazing tasty dhal, where you get the soft mango pieces now and then, at the same time, the spice of the green and red chillies always there, with Carrot mung rotis
