Maharashtrian Khichdi: Recipe by Simintini Patil

Every region of India has its version of Khichdi and Maharashtra is no exception.

This Maharashtrian Khichdi recipe is from Simintini Patil, an avid foodie. It is a moong dal and rice khichdi flavoured with a kopra (dry coconut)-lavang-dalchini-dhania-jeera masala.

I also used Indrayani rice (a variant of Maharashtra's famous Ambemohar rice) and that made it fragrant as well.


Sprouted Methi Seeds Sabzi | Mod Alelya Methichi Usal

Mod Alelya Methich Usal is a traditional recipe from Maharashtra made with sprouted fenugreek seeds.

I learnt this recipe from my friend Anupama Michael.

This dry sabzi made with sprouted methi seeds is a classic example of "Food as Medicine". The methi promotes milk production in lactating mothers, helps control blood sugar, slows hair-loss, and aids weight loss.
