Dal / Kadhi recipes
In any Cuisine, you will find that a meal combines dishes of many consistencies, because it is difficult to have a completely dry, crispy or liquid meal. In Gujarati meals too, fluid preparations like dals and kadhis are served to make food easier to ingest.
Dals like Gujarati Dal, Lachko Dal, and Kadhis like Bhinda ni Kadhi and Dapka Kadhi are some of the everyday favourites. Discover how to make these as well as other special versions, in this section.
While this is an everyday dal, it takes on a festive hue when ingredients like peanuts and yam are added. For such grand occasions, the Gujarati Dal is boiled over and over again to get the best flavour. Remember that the ideal balance of sweet and sour levels required for the success of this recipe is an art that can be perfected with practice.
This sweet and thick yellow Lachko 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.
