Kokum Amti is a popular Maharashtrian dal, that is cooked with tur dal flavored with kokum, coconut and jaggery. This lentil dish is simple to make and tasty.
If kokum is unavailable, you can use tamarind. Soak it in warm water for 15-20 minutes, squeeze the pulp and use the juice in place of kokum.
Goda masala is a must for this recipe. Using garam masala would give it a different taste to it.
Both these ingredients are easily available in the Indian market.
