Lachko is a feel-good dish in every respect, and usually features along with osaman in a gujarati menu. This sweet and thick yellow dal is generally served with rice as well as oodles of ghee to add to the aroma and flavour. The lachko dal and rice combo is similar to the maharashtrian varan bhaat.
