This Varn is one of the most loved dal dishes at my home. This is the Konkani version with coconut in it. At my place, this is served with rice and lemon saru or kokum kadi. The saru or kadi gives the sour-sweet taste to the meal. While serving, first serve rice, then pour a ladle of varn on it, then on top, pour a ladle of saru. Enjoy :).
