Here is a tongue-tickler from the Marathi culinary files! Dalimbi Usal, a traditional accompaniment to rice and rotis is made by cooking field beans with a traditional tempering, tangy kokum and everyday spices.


Jaggery creates a nice sweet and sour effect, while other ingredients like ginger, onions and coriander add their peppy touch to this Maharashtrian vaal preparation. You will notice that this dish uses a lot of coriander, and not just a sprinkling of it. This is essential to improve the aroma and flavour of the vaal usal.


Serve along with Chawal Bhakri , Methiche Varan , Dodkyacha Bhaat and Shrikhand for a lip smacking and delicious meal.
