Aam Dal

Ok guys, let me say Sorry first not posting any recipe for a long time. With 7 months old baby boy it's really tough to get any time. But I had to get time and post this family recipe of 'Aam Dal', as it's summer after all. Aam Dal is very famous Dal recipe in Bengal, it's cooked with Raw Mango and serve with 'Steamed Rice' & 'Aloo Bhaja'(potato fry). It should be sour in taste. The sourness comes from the Raw Mango. This is exclusively my mom's recipe, I think she makes the best 'Aam dal'. Let's see the recipe below.
