A wholesome Parsi dish made of sprouted and peeled vaal perked up with tangy tomatoes and crunchy onions in a soothing base of coconut milk, the Tittori Dal has a very pleasing flavour that will appeal to everybody. While on the one hand, coconut milk gives a rich but soothing flavour and texture, the other ingredients including the spice powders give it the required zing, making the Tittori Dal a well-rounded accompaniment to Rotis , Parathas or even rice preparations.

woow.. aromatic tittori dal.. a great variation in dal.. the sprouted vaal gives a nice crunch in every bite.. the flavour of the coconut milk rules this dal.. giving it a creamy texture.. and mildly spiced up..

Love the val dal and its cooked with coconut milk. I reduced the spice a bit.
