I don’t have sweet tooth. But there is something about Genasale that I end up having more and more when ever it’s made at home. My granny prepares this for me whenever I visit her.

I fondly remember my mom making tok daal or mango daal for us which used to be on particular demand during the summer season. This particular daal is a mixture of sweet and sour taste; will definitely sooth and comfort you on a very hot summer day. It can also be served as a cooling drink alongside a meal during summer. My mom used to make her tok daal extra-special by adding in a few secret ingredients such as ginger, roasted jeera masala. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
