The unique spice blend, combined with the style of making these dishes are the main reasons why Maharashtrian cuisine is complete on its own. So, without wasting any further time, let’s dig into the most unique and spectacular dishes of this Indian state.
Kothimbir is also known as coriander in Marathi. Using the fresh coriander leaves, you can easily make one of the detectable dishes from Maharashtrian cuisine. Chop the leaves coarsely and mix them with besan, gram flour, ginger, rice flour, lemon juice, and powdered spices. Since it needs to be deep-fried oil, you can use horsegram flour from Aazol. Serve it with sweet tamarind chutney or yogurt for the evening snack.
This homemade food online hails from the Konkan coast of Maharashtra. People mainly drink it after having a rich, spicy meal. The ingredients used to prepare it help cool down the digestive system. If you have problems like heartburn, gastritis, or acidity, prepare this drink within minutes using aamsol and coconut milk. The heavenly combination of sweet and sour flavours will relieve you from the burning aftertaste of spices.
Samarkand is one of the healthy sweet snacks you can have in the evening. It is a mix of yogurt and mango that will captivate you with its taste profile and freshness. Since it is the summer and the mango season, you can easily get the ripened ones. Just make sure to drain the yogurt water since that can destroy the consistency of Samarkand.
Shankarpali is an everyday sweet snack recipe that you can make at your home only. All you need is semolina, flour, sugar, and milk to make the dough. Once it is made, roll it out and cut it into small pieces. They will have a kite shape. Deep fry them into ghee and serve them hot. You can also make a huge batch and store it in an airtight container.
If you love chillas, then thalipeeth is nothing but a healthy version of the same dish. It is made with four types of flour, namely rice flour, gram flour, ragi flour, and whole wheat flour. You can add vegetables of your choice, like chopped onions, tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, etc. Make the dough similar to pancakes and prepare the snacks on a non-stick pan.
