Maharashtrian Bhakri Thali Recipes | Special Maharashtrian Veg Thali Recipe

 How to Make Easy & Quick Vegetarian Thali
Hello Foodies,
        Maharashtrian Bhakri Thali is a complete meal served on a single plate. On our one month trip to India(Back home), both our meal(lunch and dinner) a day was used to be a thali. I remember the wellbeing through my body when a platter adorned with piping-hot food made by Aai, was set down before me. When Aai(mother) serves Bhakris soft, thin, airy, and perfectly round on my plate, I thought this is the taste and food I was missing for the last few years(You got it correctly, Maa ke hath ka khana). So yum!!! So today, I made this Special Maharashtrian Bhakri Thali. 

         Do you ever stand in front of the refrigerator and decide on what to cook? Well, that dilemma is quite common! I was in the same situation today, and I opened the fridge and had some eggplants in the refrigerator, and they are all ready to use. And so here I made Bharlelya Vangyachi Bhaji (Bharwa Baingan/Stuffed Eggplant), Vangyach Bharit (Baingan Bharta/Roasted Spiced Eggplant) and served with Bajra Bhakri.

In the thali, you can see:
  • Bhat(Steamed White Rice)
  • Vangyach Bharit (Baingan Bharta/Roasted Spiced Eggplant)
  • Bharlelya Vangyachi Bhaji (Bharwa Baingan/Stuffed Eggplant)
  • Instant Raw Mango Pickle/ Kairiche Lonche
  • Homemade Yogurt/ Dahi /Curd
  • Bajarichi Bhakri(Pearl Millets Flatbread):
  • Lemon slices
  • Salad(Cucumber and Carrot)

Bhakri(Millets Flatbread)i is a mouthwatering and healthiest recipe of Maharashtrian cuisine and is a type of flatbread that can be eaten both for lunch and dinner as well. However, there is a lot of difference between the types of different millets flour bhakri. The one that's commonly enjoyed during winter is bajrichi bhakri(Pearl Millets flour flatbread) flavored with garlic, salt, and sesame seeds, and topped with ghee. While the other one is known as jowar bhakri(Sorghum Millets flour flatbread), and both are enjoyed along with bharwa baingan or baingan bharta, and sometimes with kolhapuri mutton, chicken curry. The Bhakris are soft and are enjoyed with curries. From being a rich source of protein and fiber, it has high-complex carbohydrates and is known to improve digestive health. Pearl millets, finger millets, and sorghum are a gluten-free grain and help you lose weight as it has very fewer calories.
