BM #27 Day 11
Traditional Recipes : Maharashtra
After working on thalis for BM my family kind of got addicted to these and would want me to try different ones. My daughter was coming from Japan , so this was a good occasion to make a thali, I tried a Maharashtrian Thali , which might have been difficult to do without Pradnya’s help.
I prepared the famous Maharashtrian Goda masala a day before. This masala is a must to be used in various dishes.
3 tsp dry grated coconut
3 tsp sesame seeds
20 dried red chillies
¼ cup coriander seeds
4 bay leaves
3 sticks cinnamon
7 black peppercorns
4 tsp fried onion
Dry roast the coconut, sesame seeds, separately till pinkish brown.
Add a tsp of oil and fry the rest of the ingredients one by one, till they release a nice aroma.
Mix all ingredients with fried onion and grind to a powder.
