I have always loved Maharashtrian food. Infact our neighbor from the
previous colony and a very good friend is a Maharashtrian, so have always had this
delicious food.Recently I made a complete Mharashtrian platter..and these
potatoes are a part of it.The rest of the thali shall come up soon.
10-12........ baby potatoes
2cups...... dry shredded coconut
¼ cup....... sesame seeds
1tsp.......... cumin-coriander seeds
6tbsp ........maharashtrian Goda
1tbsp......... tamarind pulp
Peel the potatoes and slit
cross wise, keeping the potato intact.
Immerse these in chilled
iced water.This shall help the slits to open up..
Roast coconut, sesame
seeds and coriander cumin seeds till pink.
Grind this to a mixture with
turmeric,red chilly pwd, tamarind, jaggery, sesame seeds and goda masala.
Fill the potatoes with
Heat a pan.add oil and mustard
Place the potatoes, cover and cook on slow fire., adding little water
every now and then so the potatoes cook till tender and the spices too seep in.
These potates have a wonderful, pleasing flavor and can be relished with rotis or parathas. Linking it to Kalyani's Magic Mingle.
