Kurdai-Gavhacha Cheek-Gavhachya Saalacha Upma
Sheera- is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet, usually served as ‘Prasad’ for Satyanarayan puja. Sheera also is an all time favourite breakfast for many Maharashtrians. If you have unexpected guests and have not time to cook up any other sweet, Sheera is a very good way of showing them you care! 🙂 And Sheera never lets you down… it always turns out good.
Ambadi greens (Gongura/Sour greens) are widely used in various preparations in many parts of India. What makes this quintessential Maharashtrian recipe so unique, is the use of Jowar ‘Kani’( broken Jowar grains or use Jowar Dalia).The tart leaves are cooked together with the broken Jowar, some Toovar/Arhar Dal, peanuts and then tempered with lots of garlic, to make this comforting Ambadichi bhaji. This bhaji can be served as a light meal on its own or you can serve this with Bhakri or Roti.

So here’s one more recipe Red Chili Thechato spice…
Hot is the word you think of when you see a Red Cocktail Dress. Hot is the word you think of when you see Red chili pepper! Both Red hot and both irresistible. 🙂 Freshly cultivated Red peppers are available in plenty this season and like I said I cant resist the neatly stacked slender and juicy Red hot peppers in the Foodmart.
