Today am posting very authentic yet easy recipe of maharastrian cuisine... I have tasted many variations from my mom's to my inlaws.. Every version is enjoyable.. Mostly after my travels rice n pitla is comfort, tasty, filling n quick lunch option for me n I have prepared this for Shh Secretly Cooking where our partner gives two ingredients with which we have to prepare some dish This time I  was challenged by Amrita Iyer , who writes a fantastic blog  The food samaritan..plz doo visit her blog for  visual treat I really love her amazing clicks ..As I got curd n besan as secret ingredients for this month challenge I made this version learnt from my mil.. We can use tamarind pulp in place of curd for sourness.. N this version better suits for rice..

Ingredients :

Besan 1/2 cup
Butter milk 1 cup
Salt acc to taste
Green chillies 2 r red chilli pwdr too tastes yum
Turmeric pwdr 1 teaspooraosted peanut pwdr 1 tablespoon
Oil 1 tablespoon
Mustard seeds 1 teaspoon
Split urad dal 1 tea spoon
Jeera 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves 3
Garlic 3 cloves
Onion 1

  • Mix besan with butter milk mix well to avoid lumps n keep it a side
  • Heat oil in kadai add mustard seeds wait till it splutters, add urad dal, jeera, curry leaves
  • Now add crushed garlic fry for few seconds, add green chillies
  • Add onion n fry till light brown.. Add butter milk mixture, salt, red chilli pwdr if using instead of green chillies roasted peanut pwdr(optional) heat n mix till it cooks.. If u make it for rice liquid consistency will taste better, if for roti lil thick goes well any how after cooling down it turns thick
  • We can replace onions with tomatoes too r else both combo too.. It tastes same like dal
