Bonus Dish for Week 3: Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh Dish: M for Mamikidikaya Pappu (Raw Mango Dal) This pappu for my first pick for the Letter 'M', but it fell off the regular A-Z Vegetarian dishes from A.P. truck because of various reasons. One reason was that I made 'Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya pachadi' for N and I didn't want the same ingredient (mango) to be used in the dishes that I was posting on consecutive days. So for M I posted Menthikura pappu.
