A popular, easy to make Maharashtrian dish. The combination of jaggery and kokum gives a sweet and tangy taste to the usal. Vaal provides you the much needed protein and iron. A thoughtful addition of vitamin C rich coriander improves the absorption of iron. Serve this usal with hot with rotis of your choice.
