**Maharashtrian/Konkani Dal Dishes

A tasty and delicious collection of various dal recipes straight from my scenic home state of Maharashtra & the lovely Konkan region, located along the western coast of India.

Black-Eyed Peas with Spinach & Coconut Curry star
My Black-Eyed Peas with Spinach in a creamy coconut curry is a healthy and delicious dish from the state of Maharashtra, located on Indiaís west coast. This dish represents typical Maharashtrian coastal cuisine at its finest.

Chincha ani Goola chi Amti Recipe star
Try my sweet and sour dal, it's a typical Maharashtrian favorite. The combination of unique ingredients allows for exceptional flavors and tastes in every delicious bite. Enjoy it simply with roti and rice.

Dali Thoi Recipe star
This simple coastal Maharashtrian/Konkani dal dish is both easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. In fact, Dali Thoi is always requested and made on a weekly basis in my house.

Eggplant Dal Recipe star
One of my favorite Maharashtrian recipes - this simple eggplant & dal dish is loaded with yummy, complex flavors! In just one bite, you will taste spicy along with sour & a subtle sweetness as well. Just serve with warm phulkas (flatbreads) & fragrant Basmati rice for a delicious & healthy meal.

Khatkhate Recipe star
A traditional mixed vegetable & dal stew that is a staple in India's Saraswat community. Use seasonal or handy vegetables to make this delicious dish. By the way, this classic recipe contains absolutely no onions or garlic! I grew up eating this dish :-)

Masoor Dal Amti Recipe star
Masoor Dal Amti (Masoor Dal Curry) is a delicious, healthy & simple Maharashtrian dish combining dal with stir-fried onions. Whole Indian masoor dal looks like smaller brown lentils but when itís skinned & split, the dal is actually orange in color and when cooked Ė itís yellow!

Masoor Dal with Spinach Recipe star
Maharashtrian comfort food at its best, my Masoor Dal Amti with Spinach is always a winner in my home. Simple, delicious, healthy & nutritious - this dal can be eaten with phulkas/rotis, fragrant rice or served as a warm soup on those chilly days. Either way, it is satisfaction in a bowl :-)

Matki chi Usal Recipe star
This delicious and simple recipe using moath beans is healthy, nutritious and very high in protein. An usal is a typical Maharashtrian stir-fry dish made using dals, beans or lentils. This dish is another Maharashtrian favorite.

Methi chi Amti Recipe star
My delicious & healthy fenugreek dal is a classic Maharashtrian favorite. Fresh fenugreek leaves (methi) have a wonderful, ever-so-slightly bitter flavor that mellows out beautifully when combined with yellow lentils (chana dal). Served simply with rice & rotis, this tasty dal is sure to please :-)

Sprouted Moong Dal Curry Recipe star
Sprouting your own lentils and dals at home is much easier than you think. My Sprouted Moong Dal Curry is healthy, nutricious and always a real treat to eat. This dish is always made for celebrations and special occasions.

Swiss Chard Dal Recipe star
Swiss chard is a healthy, nutritious & delicious leafy green vegetable that should be a part of your family's diet. I add it to creamy yellow moong dal & gently simmer the two together until cooked to perfection.

Varan (Dal) Recipe star
For most Indians, dal & rice is a true staple that is eaten daily. But for Maharashtrians, "Varan Bhath" (dal & rice) evokes wonderful, nostalgic, childhood memories. It is the absolute, quintessential Maharashtrian comfort food Ė hands down. Varan is so simple, so easy to make & delicious too!

Vatli Dal Recipe star
This spicy ground dal dish is very easy to prepare, delicious to eat and a rich source of protein to boot. My Vatli Dal is a wonderful example of what Maharashtrian cuisine truly has to offer.

Whole Masoor Dal Recipe star
In this delicious & simple Maharashtrian dish, masoor dal is used in its whole brown lentil form. Bold spices & wonderful aromatics make this dish a true favorite in my house. Serve simply with chapatis (Indian flatbread), fragrant Basmati rice or even as a hearty soup for a truly comforting meal.

Zucchini Dal Recipe star
Sometimes simplicity is a wonderful thing, especially in the kitchen on a busy weeknight! My Zucchini Dal is healthy, delicious & easy to prepare. Serve it along with some rice, roti (Indian flatbread) or even as a soup! Any way you choose will bring smiles around your dinner table :-)
