Osaman is a hot, liquid recipe akin to rasam, but not so spicy! the use of toovar dal water imparts a very comforting feel to this recipe. The dal used to make this recipe can later be utilised in other recipes like lachko dal. Enjoy osaman hot, with rice and lachko.

   Hi Asha The reason for giving recipe ingredients in cups is that most people buy and store ingredients. It is difficult to weigh each ingredient on a daily basis and moreover most of them may not even have a weighing scale at home. So we use a standard cup i.e. 200 ml.
