I Tried it, but was nothing like a gujarati dal. I think It should not have Coconut and lots of Corriander-cumin powder, as suggested by one of my gujarati friend.
I only had Masoor dal on hand, so that is what I went with. It was a hit with my eight year old daughter (my toughest critic). We like coconut, so I used one cup of the milk. I spiced it to our tastes and served it along side sweet onion rice with peas. My daughter is already begging me to make it again, and we just finished supper. Thank you for posting this treat!
