One of the most iconic recipes in Maharashtrian cuisine is Varan (yes, you’ve probably never heard that word being associated with Daal before ?)!!! It is true, ask any Maharashtrian!!! Every family has their own version and their own little variation that exemplifies ‘comfort’, ‘home’….now who would pass up on a dish like that?"Return of Varan (Daal) Flashback from 2007 to NOW!

This no-frills daal recipe was given to me by my Mother-in-Law. Varan is a Maharastrian style daal which tastes great with chapattis or plain white rice. For a detailed recipe, click HERE."Varan (Maharashtrian Daal) How-to video"
Varan is a Maharashtrian style no-frills daal that is made in every home in the region and completes every meal. It’s a very comforting dish and is usually served with plain white rice. The classic combination of the two – the Varan (dal) and Bhaat (rice) is usually said together and is considered one word – Varan Bhaat. There is no hard and fast rule that you cannot enjoy this Dhal with Chapatis or parathas.…"Varan (Maharashtrian Daal)"
