I have always been a great fan of SRIVALLI website and all her Marathon competition for quite a long time. Always wanted to join and finally got the privilege to join in. Its a fun group where many bloggers get together and cook recipes. This SEPTEMBER is special to me, Its a full month A-Z marathon yes its Alphabet Marathon.
and linking this to PREETI website. Thank you for the logo.
I have been recently using this Maharashtrian Masala called GODA MASALA for quite sometime and I am totally in love with it. I have made this famous street food Dabeli few years before and since then I have experimented on lots of other recipes too. A total winner for people who love different flavors in their food. I have selected this Amti as this Month of BLOGGING MARATHON # 32 under the REGIONAL RECIPE section. It has a blend of spice,sweet and tangy flavor in it. It goes well with rice and Chapathi But I personally like it with Poori/Chapathi. Its fun to learn new regional food and I love Maharashtrian foods, so yum and new to our taste buds. Try this out and you will be happy that you tried a new dal from your routine kind of dal. Every spoon of it is heavenly. Trust me :)
