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.
- Combine the dal with 1½ cups of water and pressure cook for 2 to 3 whistles. Keep aside.
- Heat the ghee in a deep pan and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the dal, turmeric powder, jaggery and salt, mix well and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or till the dal thickens, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve hot with rice and ghee.
