KOKAM DAL / AMTI
Kokam dal is one of the easiest dal to make. No cutting chopping involved, you just need all the ingredients in your kitchen , that’s it. This is one of the best recipes if you are having a time crunch. It is a traditional maharashtrian preparation, loved by all age goups. A complete balance of flavours – sweet jaggery, sour kokam , hot chilli , salt and the aromas of curry leaves and Goda masala ( Marathi style garam masala)
Hot steaming white rice, kokam dal and ghee makes a complete meal and is the ultimate comfort food for me and my family. Its one of the best options , if you want to eat something light and tasty!
KOKAM : The outer covering of kokam fruit is dried to get amsul or kokam. It is used as a staple souring agent in Goa and Maharashtra. Kokam yields a peculiar flavor and a blackish red colour. It is a preffered substitute for tamarind in Goa and Maharashtra.
