Mamidi Tenkala Majjiga Pulusu

Mango is a seasonal fruit..and a favourite fruit to many..Use in making different varities right from starters to Sweets.Raw mango is mostly used in making pickle that can be stored for the whole year and not only in the form of pickle,mango can also be stored in form of Tenkalu..I'll be posting the pic in this post. Mamidi Tenkalu this is know by very few of us..I knew about it from my mom's Mom...They live in Orissa and we find them there...Every summer my grandma send us this Mamidi Tenkalu which we store for a year and make Majjiga pulusu and Tenkala pappu which tastes yummy and we feel as it we r having mango be frank I love Tenkala pappu rather than normal Mango Dal.
Mangoes are dried under sun for few days..they add little salt to the mangoes before drying
them in sun.Now here is the recipe for Mamidi Tenkala Majjiga Pulusu.
