    Method

    Whenever a Konkani is asked what is the ingredient in the "Masolu", they tend to answer with "nothing" or "kothambari" or "kothambari and Urd dhal". I am sure this is quite confusing if one is not familiar with Konkani cooking. As such I thought it may be of interest to all to know what "Masolu" means to a konkani and what are the variations. I am sure there are any number of combinations and variations other than what I know of.
