Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add cumin seeds and cook until fragrant and starting to brown, about 30 seconds.

Stir in onion, cook, stirring, until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

Then stir in garlic, ginger, coriander, cayenne and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.

Stir the garlic mixture and mangoes into the lentils.

Return to a simmer, cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are falling apart, 10 to 15 minutes more.
