Bajra Bhakri(Bajri BhakriGluten Free/Pearl Millets Flatbread)

      For this winter, a soft, versatile gluten-free flatbread made with only two ingredients. No butter or oil needed in this vegan dough. Try this traditional gluten-free flatbread, Bajrichi Bhakri / Bajra Roti / Pearl Millet Flatbread. Pearl Millet is known as Bajra in India. It is rich in essential compounds like protein, fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron. Due to its rich composition of minerals and proteins, Pearl Millet or bajra has many health benefits. Bajra Bhakri is naturally gluten-free and non-allergenic.

Pithale(Chickpea Flour Curry)

         A mouthwatering, healthy, and spicy feast for spicy food lovers. Maharashtrian pithale is a vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and healthy curry recipe. Mainly pithale prepares using besan/chickpeas flour and is often serves with bhakri, bhat(rice) along with green chili thecha. The consistency of Pithal can be changed according to the way you want to enjoy it. It can be runny, thick like curry or it may be dry.

Spring Onion Stir Fry(कांद्याच्या पातीची भाजी)

         Kandyachya Patichi Bhaji is a typical Maharashtrian recipe, and it tastes awesome with bajrichi / Jwarichi Bhakri. I have prepared this curry in 20 minutes and a very simple and healthy way by adding just green chilies and chana dal in it. There are two ways of making this spring onion; one is dry and the other is the wet version.


         Crispy, Juicy, and Instant Jalebi can be made at home quickly with simple steps and some tips. You can make 200-250 g Jalebi using 3 Tbsp of maida/flour. Simply the ratio of flour and yogurt/curd is 3:3:1. If you're a dessert lover, then this dessert recipe will surely make you go gaga over it. With Independence Day is around the corner, a few days away, I wanted to share a homemade jalebi recipe with you foodies. In this recipe, I have not used cornflour/besan flour.

Dry Peanuts Chutney(शेंगदाण्याचीचटणी)

           You can use peanuts chutney as a vada-pav chutney or sprinkle it over buttered toast or stuff it inside a paratha with a dab of ghee. Spice up a cucumber-onion-tomato salad with the dry peanuts chutney and squeeze of lemon. Use it as raita masala instead of the usual salt, Mirchi, and jeera combination. Every kid's and many grown-ups favorite.
