The green mango dal is a must have in most Bengali families during the summer time. Green mango has some very good health benefits too. The raw mango contains more Vitamin C than the half-ripe or ripe mangoes. It also contains a good amount of Vitamin B1 and B2.As I still had some raw mangoes,tired my hands on it.I like it with plain rice,so try dis if u can:)
