Amti – Maharashtrian Style Tuvar Dal with Kokum and Coconut

I have been banned from eating tamarind for a while. As a result, the regular Sambar and Pulusu are off the menu in my home. And that is a problem as they are regular fare. So I have been subsisting on all kinds of dals: Tomato Pappu, Palak Dal, Lasooni Dal, Hare Lehsun ki Dal, Varan, and more…

However, I do miss the tangy taste of tamarind. So I timidly broached the subject with my doctor when he suggested that I could occasionally use Kokum and you should have seen me beaming.

So this past weekend, I made Amti, which is a simple and super tasty tuvar dal flavoured with Kokum, Coconut, and Goda Masala. It is super simple to make and super tasty. I made it along with Batatachya Kaap or Maharashtrian style pan-fried Potato Slices. Simply heaven!
