In a bowl, mix together yogurt, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, red chili powder, and salt. Add the chicken cubes to the bowl and coat them with the marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In a pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil and add the marinated chicken. Cook the chicken until browned and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, heat another tablespoon of oil and add chopped onions. Saute until translucent. Add minced garlic, grated ginger, and chopped green chilies. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes, salt, and the remaining spices to the pan. Cook until the tomatoes have softened and are mushy.
Drain the soaked black lentils and add them to the pan. Mix well and add 2 cups of water. Cover the pan and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the lentils are tender.
Add the cubed mangoes and cooked chicken to the pan. Mix well and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot with rice or naan bread.
