If you are ever in Mumbai at the peak of mango season—especially when the sweet Alphonso variety abounds in the markets—try this dal. In the U.S., I find that the variety known as champagne mango—light yellow skin; firm, juicy, sweet pulp; not too fibrous—is a suitable stand-in. This sweet curry actually has a chile-aftermath, thanks to the garam masala.
