Recipe: Vrat Special Farali Misal

July 19, 2023 16:24 IST

In Marathi, we have a saying: 'Ekadashi ani duppat khashi'. It is a slightly condescending way of telling someone not to overeat on a fasting day.

Why is this gentle nag necessary? Well, blame it on all the delicacies that are generally prepared during fasting.

From sabudana khichidi, sabudana wada to kheer and Rajgira Puri as well as Singhada Halwa -- the yumminess that vrat ka khaana brings can easily turn our fasting into feasting.

One such delicious preparation is Farali Misal, which is a fasting-appropriate spin on the traditional misal and a staple in Maharashtrian homes during fasting season.

It is an assortment of many flavourful things which makes for a super-filling and mazedaar dish on your 'hunger-stricken' day.

The dish can be enjoyed as a light snack or a complete meal if combined with Rajgira Puri.

Be warned, you may gorge on a bellyful of this tasty concoction and still want more!
