This is a dish prepared mainly during summer since that’s when green mangoes are plenty in Bangladesh. During a scorching hot day, the lentil with green mango(aam dal) soup will cool you down with a comforting warmth. This soup can be consumed either hot or cold, with rice or just as is as a soup. No matter how you serve, your taste buds will be brimming with zesty, luscious, lip-smacking flavors. —Lail | With A Spin
