I tried your recipe, my family liked it. Curry is very tasty with chappathies. Saw the rating from Sridevi Jagadeesh. The statement there is no dhal curry with coconut is not true. Kerala parippu curry which is a main dish in sadhyas has dhal and coconut. Also erisseri, some chutneys etc has dhal-coconut combination.

I wanted to surprise my husband who is a food lover, with yr recipe. After making the Potato Dhal curry he has cautioned me not to use recipes from internet and did not like the same even though fresh coconut was used. Tried the recipe because it mentioned the usage of coconut. Never will a dhal in any planet have coconut. Hence pls remove the recipe from the site.
