Tikhat Mithachi Puri May 29, 2007Posted by live2cook in Flat and Fried Breads.
The Backbone of Indian cuisine are the variety of spices. By varying the proportions, we create tons of tastes. By mixing them with different ingredients, we produce millions of recipes.
If the recipe calls for ingredients available in my pantry, if it gives a different taste and if it introduces variety to my weekly menu, it will find a place in my collection. I will look for these kind of recipes in Books, Magazines, grocery bags, cartons, labels…..etc.
One such recipe is Tikhat Mithachi Puri. I noted down the recipe from Bawarchi Contributions. Though I did not know the meaning for the name of the recipe, I wrote it down because it called for most common ingredients.
When Nupur announced RCI – Maharashtra cuisine, this recipe came to my mind because the name sounded like Marathi. I searched the internet for the meaning. Vaishali of Happy Burp helped me with her post for “Tikhat- Mithaacha Sanja”.
So, what’s next…Post it and send it for RCI event!
