( Lost & Rarely made Traditional Whole Wheat Snack From Maharashtra)
A meal in itself, which is a truly traditional recipe that is slowly becoming a lost recipe. It is versatile and a healthy option for lunch, dinner , breakfast or even a snack. A really earthy dish with flavour of rural areas. I remember our Childhood days when the aroma of roasted wheat flour filled each corner of the house and we knew a tasty treat was on its way.
