This is one of the dishes made for Lord Rama on Sri Rama Navami.

(These quantities are all approximations.)

Moong Dal: 1/2 cup or even less
Raw Mango: 1/4 cup
Shredded Coconut: a little
Green Chillies: 1 (adjust according to taste)
Oil: 1/4th tsp
Mustard seeds: 1/4th tsp

Soak moong dal for a couple of hours and drain all the water. Cut raw mango into small pieces and add it to the moong dal. Add green chillies, salt and shredded coconut.

In a small pan, add oil and when it is hot, add mustard seeds and hing (asafoetida). You can add curry leaves too if you wish. When the mustard seeds splutter, add it to the moong dal mixture and mix it. You can even add some lemon juice to it. It tastes amazing. This also serves as a healthy snack for kids.
