Tak Dal ( Tangy Lentil ) is a very healthy and tangy dish which is consumed in the Eastern Part of the country during summer period. It is very useful to replenish all the necessary nutrients which our body loses during peak of summer. Mostly it is accompanied with steamed rice and an additional fried vegetable to complete the meal. Mangoes add to the tanginess of the dish and dal provides all the proteins required for a hard days work in summer time.

1 cup Masoor dal (Red lentil)

1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
1 Tomato, chopped
2 Whole red chilly 
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Ginger, finely chopped
Mustard oil for tempering


Method:
Wash the raw mango, peel the outer skin and cut the mango into 4-6 pieces lengthwise. Keep aside. Wash dal properly, rinse in running water then drain. Repeat the same till water is clear. Add 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker and add chopped tomato, turmeric powder and salt. After first whistle, switch off the burner and when the steam goes off add mango pieces. Close the lid of cooker and heat again for 5 -7 minutes. Later mash the dal with a ladle.
