Ambe Dal recipe
Ambe Dal is a traditional Maharashtrian preparation, specially made during these hot summer days when green Mangoes are abundant. It’s super quick and easy to make and requires just a few easily available ingredients.

unripe , peeled and grated (depending on the tartness the amount can be adjusted)
For the tadka (tempering)

Grind the dal coarsely in a blender .

Add this tadka over the Mango Dal mixture and mix nicely .
