I don’t know if it was the puja , or the fact that it was a Prasad, that made it so divine to taste. Masale Bhaat paired with Mattha ( spiced buttermilk)and green chutney, was one of my favorite combinations.
Masale bhaat is an authentic Maharashtrian style vegetable pulav , with a distinct flavor. The flavor comes from the special masala used in its preparation – the Goda Masala !
It is an awesome one pot meal , that is quick and easy to make. Loaded with flavours of the maharashtrian cuisine . It is one of my go-to dinner options for weeknights.
This rice preparation is made using various veggies . when you use eggplants , it becomes Vangi bhaat, if you use ivy gourd , it becomes Tondli bhaat , when you use peas , it becomes Mataar bhaat……… you got what I want to say, right ?
For todays recipe I have used , peas , potatoes n onions. If it were my grandmother , she would have insisted to make the rice with only one star veggie. You guys are free to follow my grandma , if you like !
Today I am sharing my grandma’s recipe, and this no doubt has to be the simplest one for Masale Bhaat. Enjoy !
