This South Indian mangai sambar recipe calls for green mango pieces, cooked toor dal, onion, and sambar powder. I do not add tomatoes and tamarind water as the raw mango is enough to give the sour and tangy flavor. Along with raw mango, you can also add veggies like drumstick, small onion, potato, and brinjals, making a great combo in sambar.

Sambar is one of the basic recipes in our home, so mango sambar is a must in mango season. It is one of the most flavorful lentil-based gravies; the spicy and tangy flavors from raw mango make the sambar so aromatic and appetizing. I love to consume sambar rice, a dollop of ghee on top, and potato fry as a side that makes a wonderful combo meal that is absolutely lip-smacking and blissful.

Mango sambar is usually served before rasam rice in the Southern part of India. This tangy sambar goes well with plain rice, idly, dosa, uttapam, ven Pongal, upma, etc. I like to relish it with roti, chapati, and phulkas.

This mangai sambar is prepared in a Tamil Nadu style. I usually prefer the kilimooku manga or tottapuri variety, but it was unavailable in San Diego, so I used a Mexican green mango. Feel free to use any sour mango for this recipe.

I have been preparing many mango-based recipes at home and posting them on my blog. We can also make raw mango rice, mango pickle, mango kadhi, mango sassive, mango gojju, mango dal, mango ice cream, kulfi, mousse, and so on...

Tips:

3. You can add veggies like drumstick, brinjal, potato, small onion, and raw mangoes.

4. Do not skip jaggery/sugar as it helps to balance the sambar flavor.

5. Adjust sambar consistency as per choice. Pour little water if you like it thick and more water for soupy consistency.
