Gatari Amavasya is around the corner, and have you yet decided on how to celebrate it? Here is our meat plater to celebrate this day.
What is Gatari Amavsya?
      Gatari Amavasya which falls on a moonless night before Shravan begins. Gatari Amavasya is the last day of the month of Ashadha and is on July 20th this year. It is the last day of celebration before the month of Shravan begins. Many Maharashtrians who follow Shravan, refrain from eating non-vegetarian food during this period. As Maharashtrians await the start of the Shravan month, they also look forward to celebrating Gatari Amavasya a day before it. After eating and drinking to their heart’s desire the whole day and night, people get ready to eat simple food for Shravan.

Chicken fry is Dr.K’s (my husband) all-time favorite chicken recipe and pretty regular at my home. He just loves the spiciness, the tang, and the aroma of the freshly-made masala paste.
