For the unversed, varan stands for Maharashtrian toor dal and bhat stands for rice. This traditional dal recipe is made using grated coconut, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, onion and more. It is extremely flavourful and tastes best when served with bhat (steamed rice). If you want to give it a try, click here for the recipe.
